Video: Eden Hazard Scores Beauty For Belgium.. But Should Craig Gordon Have Saved?

Eden Hazard scored a beauty for Belgium tonight – but should Craig Gordon have saved it?

The Chelsea attacker was his usual creative self as Roberto Martinez’s Belgian side put Scotland to the sword at Hampden.

And he got in on the goals in a devastating 15 minutes to start the second half.

Belgium went into the break just 1-0 up thanks to Romelu Lukaku, but they were 4-0 up by the 60th minute – and Hazard started that scoring flurry after half-time with a powerful strike from the left.

But should Gordon have saved it?

Gordon has taken criticism for his part in Belgium’s first goal and was nowhere near Michy Batshuayi’s first and Scotland’s fourth.

And it’ll get the debate going about who should start for Scotland between Gordon and Rangers goalie Allan McGregor.

Tonight is a friendly so it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things, but things have to improve dramatically against Albania in Scotland’s first Nations League game on Monday.
