a goal and four assists sets up Hazard during a charity match

Present in Calais this Wednesday for a charity match organized by the Variétés Club de France, Eden Hazard delighted his prestigious teammates such as Robert Pirès. The Belgian, who provided four assists, also scored in the team’s big victory (11-2).

A few days after ending his career in professional football, Eden Hazard returned to the pitch. The Belgian participated this Wednesday in a charity match organized by the Variétés Club de France. The presence of the former Real Madrid player was announced before his retirement became official.

At the Stade de l’Epopée, in Calais, Eden Hazard did not take long to be decisive against a “Team Calais”. From the 9th minute, the 32-year-old Robert Pirès served and the 1998 world champion was able to take plenty of time to adjust the goalkeeper to open the scoring.

Trained at LOSC, where he played between 2007 and 2012, the man with 126 caps for the Red Devils was reunited with Yohan Cabaye. The midfielder scored the second goal (16th) on a pass from the Belgian. Eden Hazard signed the third achievement of the evening (21st) on a pass from Mathieu Debuchy, another former LOSC player.

Danger available to young supporters

Laurent Blanc, Christian Karembeu, Claude Puel, Daniel Van Buyten, Ludovic Giuly and Wilfrid Mbappé also played with Eden Hazard. On the opposite side we found a team led in particular by Steve Savidan. With Hazard still in the lead, Pirès quickly scored a double (24th), for a ruthless Variétés Club de France.

Goals followed in the first period. On a counterattack, Ludovic Giuly brought the score to 5-0 (38.). Wilfried Mbappé, the father of Kylian, was shot by a backheel from Eden Hazard (42nd) for 6-0. Before the break, Debuchy headed (44th) a cross from Giuly for another goal. The final score was 11-2, with a second-half rotation allowing the likes of Ciryl Gane to feature. Sidnei Govou also scored twice for Variétés Club de France (75th, 80th).

Number 10 at the back, Eden Hazard gave his armband to a child at the end of the game. The ex-Chelsea player also gave his crampons to another young fan. Smiling and approachable, Hazard signed several autographs and took a few selfies. The party was organized with the aim of raising funds for the yellow coin operation.

“Being back in a stadium, with supporters… It’s nice. But I don’t miss it, not at the moment. I’m happy with my current life. I take time for myself. I’m going to miss football, but I still watch it on TV. I had been thinking about it for a while now. I have so many things to do outside of football that the decision was made easier. And anyway, I had always said that from “As soon as I no longer like the field, i want to stop I didn’t want to sign somewhere for the money,” he commented on beIN Sports.
