Belgium will have to make do without the services of Chelsea star Eden Hazard in the upcoming international friendly against the Czech Republic and the World Cup qualifier with Estonia due to injury.
Hazard suffered an ankle problem in Sunday's training session and consequently faces a spell on the sidelines.

"Eden Hazard is out of #belcze and #estbel due to injury after twisting his ankle today in training (individual action). More news in 48h," a brief statement on the official Twitter account of the national team reads.
