Roberto Martinez has played down injury fears over Eden Hazard after Belgium’s captain limped out of Monday’s 4-1 friendly win over Costa Rica.

The Belgium captain had to hobble off in the 70th-minute after taking a blow to his foot but Martinez said after the match that the injury is not serious.

Eden is OK, said Martinez. He had a little trouble, but it’s nothing to worry about.

Hazard had been in good form prior to leaving the pitch, setting up a goal for Romelu Lukaku as the Belgians came back from a goal down to run out comfortable winners.

I really enjoyed his performance, said Martinez.

He was sharp and strong, he was majestic.

At the end he just came off because he had a little bit of a dead leg, a little bit of a knock on his leg.

Lukaku took his international goals tally to 36 as he scored either side of half-time before creating a goal for Michy Batshuayi.

Belgium are now on an 18-match unbeaten run, ahead of their World Cup Group G opener with Panama next Monday.

Lukaku told Belgian TV: I think we have made progress. We did not lose, it’s important. We scored a lot of goals tonight.

We will still progress before the match against Panama and we will give 120 per cent against them. We will continue to make progress later.
