Watch: Hazard pulls off surprising finish vs. Norway

New, comments

You don't see this very often.

Eden Hazard has picked up with Belgium right where he left off for Chelsea. He's found the net today in a friendly against Norway in a very surprising way, scoring with a beautiful glancing header that any striker in the world would be proud of. Check it out:

The goal brought the friendly level at 2-2. Belgium would go on to grab a late winner via Laurent Ciman.

Hazard has a few headed goals to his name while at Chelsea, but it's certainly not something he's known for. The last time he scored with his head for the club was against Crystal Palace during the 2014-15 season.

It's no secret that Hazard had a really rough season for Chelsea. He went almost the whole season without finding the net from open play, but towards the end of the campaign he caught fire and began looking like the Hazard of old.

While that hot streak didn't do anything to help Chelsea -- except ruin Tottenham Hotspur's title hopes -- it could spell very good news for Belgium as the European Championships approach.
