Belgium Cribs: The Eden Hazard edition

New, comments

The Chelsea star shows us around his Euro 2016 hotel

The 2016 European Championships have kicked off in France. Chelsea have a few players participating in the tournament, most notably Eden Hazard featuring for Belgium. The Red Devils have high hopes heading into Euro 2016 and if they are to have success, Hazard will likely need to play a starring role.

Before their first match against Italy on Monday (8:00 p.m. BST, 3:00 p.m. ET), Hazard gave the official Red Devils website a tour of the team's sweet hotel accommodations in France.

After his footballing career Eden should think about hosting some sort of reality show where he tours cool places in the world. Or better yet, he should revive MTV's Cribs and bring it to Belgium. He's a natural at conversing with people and coming across as relatable and lovable on TV.

The wide variety of activities that the team take part in while away from training are pretty interesting. Hazard talks to 18-year-old Christian Kabasele, who spends his time playing Football Manager. I'm sure all of us football junkies can relate to not being able to get away from the sport even if it's in the virtual world.

While some like to kick back in their rooms and relax, a few of the 'classy' players hit the links for a round of golf. Eden calls on his chauffeur/caddie Kevin De Bruyne to drive him around and act a fool on the readily available golf course near the hotel.

If Hazard is half as good in the Euros as he as at hosting video tours, then Belgium should be in pretty good shape this summer.
