Hazard posted the photo on the plane back from Cyprus, where Belgium recorded a 1-0 win on Sunday to keep themselves on course to qualify for next summer’s European Championships in France.
And Hazard, who scored the winning goal in the closing stages of the Euro 2016 qualifier, celebrated by trolling the team’s talismanic captain on social media.

Hazard posted the photo, alongside the caption: “Zzzzzzzz😴 @vincentkompany”
But Kompany promised to get his own back on the 24-year-old with his own Instagram post.
“This guy will get it. @hazardeden_10,” Kompany posted, alongside a photo of himself on the plane and a guilty-looking Hazard a few rows behind in the background.
Belgium have underperformed in qualifying
With the amount of talent in their ranks, it’s a surprise that Belgium have only won five of their eight Euro 2016 qualifiers so far.
The Red Devils were expected to breeze through their qualification group, but currently find themselves a point behind Group B leaders Wales after eight matches.
Belgium, however, will still be expected to secure their place at next summer’s showpiece tournament by defeating Andorra and Israel next month.
Some people believe that Belgium, currently ranked second in the FIFA World Rankings, could potentially win Euro 2016.
And with the likes of Hazard, Kompany, Thibaut Courtois, Kevin De Bruyne and Christian Benteke amongst other top talents at their disposal, there’s no reason why Marc Wilmots’ men shouldn’t be pushing France, Spain and Germany all the way next summer.
