EDEN HAZARD has risked a rift in Belgium's squad before their World Cup showdown with England - by accusing Romelu Lukaku of going missing.
And the Chelsea midfielder said he had stern words with Manchester United striker Lukaku midway through their clash with Panama on Monday.
Hazard, 27, is due to captain the Red Devils against Gareth Southgate's men in Kaliningrad on June 28.
Lukaku, 25, scored twice in a 3-0 win over Panama following a goalless first half in Sochi.
Hazard rapped: "I told Romelu at half time that we needed him. He was hiding away on his own up front in the first half.
"Even though we have good players, it is not easy for us to play with a man short.
"Once he got involved in the game, as if by magic, he scored two goals. I hope he will understand.
"He did not have a bad game. He scored twice, so everyone is happy. It is good for his confidence.
"But I want him to try to get more involved in the game, especially during the first half - as we know what he can do."
Dries Mertens hit Belgium's opener before Lukaku struck twice in six minutes.

Hazard added: "Even though it wasn't easy we won 3-0- so maybe that is a message for the other teams.
"We showed we were present. We scored goals, kept a clean sheet and everybody was able to play.
"Let's see whether the best is yet to come."
