Four goals inside an hour helped Belgium to see off Euro 2016 hosts France in an enthralling friendly after suffering a late scare at the Parc des Princes, but it was Eden Hazard who arguably provided the moment of the match.

Two goals from Marouane Fellaini and one each for Radja Nainggolan and the in-form Hazard, who scored a penalty, earned Belgium the bragging rights before the Euro qualifiers.

Belgium were by far the better team in the first-half, with France rarely getting a sniff at goal. The second period then started with a bang as three goals were scored in four minutes.

Hazard brilliance

However the highlight of the game was undoubtedly Hazard's audacious 'rabona cross'. The 24-year-old had the confidence and audacity to pull it off in the 18-yard box, and Blues fans will certainly want to see more of it happening next year.

The Belgian won the PFA Player of the Year award in April, and the sublime piece of skill underlines his talent. The tricky winger scored 14 goals and grabbed nine assists in the 2014/15 Premier League season.
