Modric and Hazard feature in wins for Croatia and Belgium

Luka Modric and Eden Hazard both started for their respective national teams tonight. Modric helped Croatia beat Denmark 2 – 1; while Hazard was involved in Belgium’s 2 – 1 win over Wales.

Eden Hazard

Real Madrid’s Belgian winger started on the left side of the attack in a 4-2-3-1. Though he was deployed as a left center-forward, he was far from stationary in that position. In fact, the interesting thing about Hazard in this game, and every game with Belgium for that matter, is that he has quite a bit of freedom to roam off the ball.

In the build-up phase, he often drops deep as the anchor to help the team escape the half. No play exemplifies this better than Belgium’s opening goal (a Kevin de Bruyne special), where Hazard kickstarted the attack by dribbling out of pressure and getting the ball up field.

Hazard’s heat-map reflects his role:

Hazard had a good game. With Belgium he typically thrives in the role of orchestrator. He has the freedom to roam, while Yannick Carrasco does the two-way work on the wings.

Here are all of Hazard’s touches tonight:

Luka Modric

Modric, meanwhile, started for Croatia in their win over Denmark in Group A, and the three points earned tonight puts them top of the group.

Modric, who typically starts on the right side of midfield, was mostly on the left side today:

Modric had 92 touches in his 92 minutes on the field, and had a game-high three key passes while completing 86.8% of his passes.
