It’s great: Eden Hazard invited the entire Belgian team to his home before the Kings World Cup

The Belgian team, which will be called Deptostra FC, will be competing in this friendly tournament organized by Gérard Piqué from May 26 to June 8. Captain of the team, Eden Hazard welcomed his teammates to his home in Madrid.

The Kings World Cup will start soon. The friendly competition, organized by Gérard Piqué, is in fact a football World Cup, 7 against 7, organized in Mexico from May 26 to June 8. Each participating team had to create a pool of 10 players, 3 of whom could be former professional players. In Belgium, Eden Hazard was chosen as captain of Deptostra FC, the official name of the Belgian team during the tournament.

The rules of the game are also very surprising: unlimited changes, 5-minute suspension in the event of a red card, tasty jokers (goal counts double, exclusion of an opponent, etc.)… Everything is very different and adapted to social networks , all to be broadcast on Twitch. Matches last 40 minutes, with two 20-minute halves. That’s the main points.

As a good captain, Eden Hazard wanted to make a gesture, just to prepare himself in the company of his teammates. The entire Belgian team spent a few days in Madrid, where they were welcomed by the former Red Devil, who continues to live there after his retirement. Training sessions increased there, before the team returned to its base camp in Tubize, just to refine its preparation. Without Hazard, remained in Spain.

Rocky Peeters, Deptostra coach, does not hide his joy at having been able to travel to Madrid. “I didn’t know Eden personally, but now I do. It was also great for the players to get to know him. Eden, it’s still Eden. He’s himself, he wants to have fun, he loves this game. We’ve had good training, it’s still sharp, there’s no big difference with its last Madrid version”, confides the 44-year-old coach. Hazard will not be the only star present in Mexico. In Italy, Totti and Nainggolan are taken over, while Neymar will coach a Brazilian team. Chicharito will be there for Mexico, too, while Samir Nasri will represent France.

Eden and her teammates will face the equivalent of Mexico on Sunday at around 8 p.m. to kick off their tournament. In this Belgian team, we find in particular Ethan Hazard, but also Viktor Boone from Lierse, Jordy Gillekens from Francs Borains and even Nabil Jaadi, who plays in Tangier. It remains to be hoped that Belgium performs well. Remember that at the end, there is a bonus of one million euros to share, just to get a boost of motivation.
