The Chelsea winger believes that the two Group G heavyweights will each progress to the showpiece in Moscow
The two sides are set to go head-to-head in Group G, alongside Panama and Tunisia, meaning that any further meeting between the Red Devils and the Three Lions would have to wait until the final at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
And, writing on Instagram, Hazard has put his neck on the line and predicted the entirety of the knockout stage with the All Football App.
The Chelsea winger expects Belgium to win Group G, and then face Group H runners-up Poland, while England will face Colombia in the Round of 16.
Roberto Martinez’s side are then set to beat Brazil, per Hazard, while England will get the better of old enemy Germany, before Belgium beat France and Gareth Southgate’s side down Argentina in the semi-finals.

That will lead to a showpiece showdown between Hazard and his Chelsea team-mates Gary Cahill and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Of course, the mercurial winger believes that Belgium will be victorious, finally crowning a Golden Generation that includes the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.
Indeed, Hazard went on record prior to the World Cup kicking off to proclaim that Belgium’s current crop of players must win a trophy to truly live up to their tag as one of the finest Belgium squads in history.
