‘Eden Hazard is better than Neymar’ – Fans rave about Chelsea winger after Belgium eliminate Brazil in superstar showdown
The Red Devils captain outclassed his opposite number as Neymar was sent packing from the World Cup
A classic World Cup quarter-final saw Eden Hazard’s Belgium get the better of Neymar’s Brazil.
In the absence of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the two best players remaining in the competition were fighting to become its star. Hazard won.
The Chelsea winger dazzled where Neymar disappointed. He was virtually unplayable at times and illuminated the Kazan Arena with the ball at his feet. There was daylight between their performances.
He completed the most dribbles of any player at the tournament so far and more than the entire Brazil team put together.
With so many superstars on display, the match was billed as a showdown between the two Real Madrid targets.
Fans on Twitter, including Frank Sinclair, have unanimously picked their champion.
