Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard has seen a drop in performance this season. In fact, Real Madrid are going to release him soon.
Romelu Lukaku is also hit with a storm of injuries. The reason is that after recovering from a hamstring muscle, the Chelsea player on loan at Inter Milan has to deal with a biceps femoris muscle.
During the 2022 World Cup, Roberto Martinez still seems to rely on the golden generation which is no longer very young. Apart from Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, other names from the golden generation such as Thibaut Courtois, Kevin De Bruyne, Toby Alderweireld, Thomas Meunier and Axel Witsel have also come to Qatar.
