Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has broken his right ankle while training on international duty with his country, Belgium.
The Belgian Football Association (RBFA) confirmed on Twitter that the midfielder twisted his ankle and subsequent scans revealed a fracture.
As a result of this setback, the 26-year-old will miss Belgium’s friendly on Monday against the Czech Republic and their World Cup qualifier against Estonia on 9 June.
However, it has not been confirmed how long he will be out of action.
Hazard was instrumental to Chelsea’s title-winning Premier League season, scoring 16 goals in 36 games.
He still has three years to run on his contract at Stamford Bridge but has been linked with a move to European champions Real Madrid.
