Belgium forward, Eden Hazard has described his situation at Real Madrid as “delicate”.

Hazard played for 65 minutes in their 2-1 Nations League home win over Wales on Thursday.

However, after the game, the midfielder admitted he needed more game time at Real Madrid before the 2022 World Cup.

Hazard has barely featured for Real this season after making only one start.

“I was happy to start another match,” Hazard told RTL.

“You saw that, I think. I’m happy when I play and it was nice to play for the supporters here [in Brussels] again. Our first half was very good.

“I know what I can do. Now I want to get in shape for the World Cup. We’ll see what the coach [Roberto Martinez] decides, but I’m happiest when I play.

“When I play, I give it my all. It’s a delicate situation at Real Madrid. I feel like playing more, but I can’t do more.

“I’ve always said the old Eden Hazard will come back when he plays. I just need to get back into the rhythm.”
