Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard were the stars of the show as Belgium drew 3-3 with Mexico during a breathless international friendly in the lead-up to the 2018 World Cup.
The Manchester United striker struck twice after half-time to equal Belgium’s all-time goalscoring record after Hazard’s opener in the 17th minute at the King Baudouin Stadium. Hazard, who missed the start of Chelsea’s campaign with an ankle injury, has showed signs of returning to his best in recent weeks and the forward was enjoying himself of Friday night. The 26-year-old has embarrassed countless defenders since his return to action and even managed to put the linesman on his backside during the second-half.

Clearly full of confidence after his first-half goal, Hazard played a brilliant reverse pass to Dries Mertens on the right flank which completely deceived the official.
The linesman momentarily lost his footing before gathering himself to catch up with Belgium’s attack. Don’t worry, pal. You certainly won’t be the last person Hazard humiliates this season
