The Belgian's son, Eden Hazard, stole the spotlight by scoring a wonderful goal with the youth team at Real Madrid, through which he revealed a talent coming strongly to succeed his father, who is living the worst periods of his football career ever.
While Hazard is absent from Real Madrid and rarely participates, his 7-year-old son Leo shines, scoring a beautiful goal from a long shot against Granada during a tournament for this age group in the Spanish capital.
Leo received the ball in front of the penalty area, then turned around quickly and hit it hard against Granada, scoring the second goal in the match.

Last March, Hazard admitted his desire to complete his contract with Real Madrid, which ends in 2024, rejecting the idea of leaving despite his departure from the accounts of Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, and said that among the reasons for his decision was his desire to follow his son in the Royal Club Academy.
The Belgian player said, "My son is a big fan of Messi, we all really love Lionel."
"I watch with my children the big players – like Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar – regularly," he added.
Hazard moved to Real Madrid in 2019 for more than 100 million euros with some additions, to become the most expensive player ever in the history of the "royal" club, but his market value has declined shockingly, and is now around 5 million euros only.
In addition, Hazard is the highest-paid player in Real Madrid, earning more than 530,000 euros per week.
Hazard participated last week for the first time with Real Madrid after an absence of 205 days, as he came on as a substitute in the Valladolid match in the Spanish League, bringing the total minutes of his participation throughout the season to only about 320 minutes in all competitions, during which he scored one goal and assisted two.
