Eden Hazard Heaps Praise On Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Belgium star Eden Hazard has expressed his admiration for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after the Sweden captain’s international career came to an end with a 1-0 to the Red Devils at Euro 2016 on Wednesday.

Sweden needed only a win to remain in the competition but was denied the chance of qualifying from Group E through Radja Nainggolan’s super strike.

Notwithstanding, Hazard says he was really impressed with Ibra’s fighting spirit through out the game. The PSG legend battled hard to secure a decisive victory for his country but Belgium’s defense remained unbreakable.

In his hearty tribute to Sweden’s record goalscorer, the Chelsea winger had this to say:

“Zlatan is a great player, a true gentleman.

“He has achieved a lot in his career but he fought like a lion to keep his European Championship adventure alive.” 

Belgium’s win will see them take on Group F leaders Hungary in the next round and Hazard is already looking ahead to the knock-out stages of the tournament.

“We are thinking about Hungary now because we want to win. Let’s see if it is a favorable draw, we will see how far we can go, if we can get to the final it will be a great achievement.

“The big teams don’t always win though, just look at Italy today,” Hazard concluded, in reference to the Azzurri’s 1-0 defeat to Republic of Ireland.

Belgium will take on Hungary in Toulouse on Sunday.
