Current table in the World Cup

Top goalscorer

Romelu Lukaku is still unavailable due to an ankle injury, meaning Belgium will need other players to step up. One such star could be Eden Hazard. The skipper needs to prove a point here after falling out of favor at Real Madrid. This game could be an opportunity for him to kick-start his season.
