Messi and Ronaldo will be envious of Hazard’s sensational record equaling feat

The Belgian has emerged as the first person since 1966 to complete all ten take ons successfully in the history of the FIFA World Cup, after a first class display on Saturday night against Brazil

The 27-year-old was on cloud nine as he gave Brazil a torrid time as Belgium handed the South Americans a shocking elimination from the mundial.

Hazard completed all ten of his take ons against Brazil, the highest number with a 100 per cent success rate since 1966, a feat that neither Lionel Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo, the two best players in the world have come close to achieving it.

To complete that statistic in any game is outrageous but against Brazil is just incredible.

Belgium will take on France on Tuesday in the first semi-finals clash to battle for a place in the final
