Netherlands 1-1 Belgium: Thorgan Hazard outshines Eden and De Bruyne; fans hail debutant [Best Tweets]

Belgium travelled to neighbours Netherlands for a much anticipated international friendly on Wednesday. All eyes were on the stars of Belgium to produce another exhilarating display under Roberto Martinez, whose reign has produced high scoring games thus far from the Belgians.

The game saw Hazard brothers Eden and Thorgan take the field together for Belgium for the first time in their careers. Twitter was full of hype and anticipation for the game in store.

Even as Thorgan Hazard sizzled in his first start for his nation, Eden failed to match his younger brother. Thorgan was, arguably, the best player on the pitch and Twitter did not fail to notice his contribution.

Manchester City player Vincent Kompany was named in the starting lineup but was withdrawn before the start of the match and was replaced with Christian Kabasele. It was later revealed that, even though he was withdrawn, he had not suffered any injury. However, that did not prevent Twitter from bringing out the metaphorical pitchforks.

Even though Thorgan Hazard shone on the day, Yannick Carrasco outshone him, albeit by a small extent, and Twitter produced the stats that show Carrasco’s growth into a top attacker.
