Hazard urges Belgium to learn lessons ahead of Euro 2016.



Eden Hazard has told Belgium teammates they must learn to cope with opponents who play the defensive style ahead of Euro 2016.

Belgium played out a 1-1 draw with Finland - who had lost their last four matches - on Wednesday as Romelu Lukaku came off the bench to score the leveller with a minute to go.

"I think we played a good match," Chelsea attacker Hazard told RTBF after the clash. "We still had a lot of chances and a lot of attacks.

"We hit the post and had a ball stopped on the line. We have tried, but could not achieve what we wanted.

"At the other end, Finland converted their only opening into a goal, so these are the only two black marks – one goal conceded and what we were missing before scoring the goal.

"We have many players who can make the difference. It scares opponents who play more defensively. We will have to deal with that for the Euros.

"We played against Switzerland a few days ago and you have to be able to string performances together," added the 25-year-old.

"We must learn to move on between games for the Euros, but Finland defended and played primarily to not concede. They had five at the back and it was difficult to create space."
