Pic 1: Kylian (Chelsea), Thorgan (Borussia Mönchengladbach) and Eden (Chelsea) wearing French shirts for the 1998 World Cup.
Pic 2: The three bros today.


Why the France shirts?

Eden Hazard, who hails from the Belgian town of Braine-le Comte but moved to France aged 14 to play for Lille.

Hazard is one of three footballing brothers, and there was delight on French social media when a picture was unearthed of the trio as children in France football strips. paying homage to World Cup-winning striker Zinedine Zidane. Thorgan Hazard, Eden's brother, is also in the Belgium team.

Justifying his childhood transgression, Eden Hazard said that they had grown up with the 1998 World Cup and at that time there were no Belgium shirts - it was all about Les Bleus.

The French, on the other hand, have Benjamin Pavard, hero of the last-16 game against Argentina. He grew up in the French town of Jeumont, which nestles on the border with Belgium.

Why were the Belgian boys wearing France shirts? France and Belgium are just like Nigeria and Ghana except that they actually share borders. It's a no brainer who the Belgians will support at the Brazil vs France 1998 world cup finals.

Time and consistency matters alot.
If we all knew what the future looks like, we'll probably be lazy and dreams will never come true

when their team was rubbish in 1998 and couldnt even pass the 1st round and/or win a single game, why wouldnt they support the best of the best France?!

Belgium is a country with three ethnicities...French, Dutch/Flemish with a German minority

And there are issues between the Dutch/Flemish and French speaking parts (a bit like Nigeria, but more serious like...separatist parties are actually part of the government).

Like Nigeria, the Belgian National football team is one of its unifying factors.

Hazard and his bros are from the French speaking bit of Belgium...so backing France makes sense when your country is not playing.(Of course, if Belgium was playing...na belgium shirt dem go wear).

Fun fact...Vincent Kompany, the Belgian skipper speaks French, Dutch, English and German...so is kind of acceptable to everyone grin
