WATCH: Hazard assists on Nainggolan's wondergoal vs. Wales

What. A. Hit.

Eden Hazard and Belgium have taken an early lead over Wales in the Euro 2016 quarterfinals. It wasn't the Chelsea man who got the scoring started, but he did get the assist as he set up a player who has been linked heavily to the club very recently.

AS Roma's Radja Nainggolan, who has been rumored to be on the way to Stamford Bridge this summer, got the scoring started with an absolute rocket of a strike from outside the 18-yard box.

Hazard's simple layoff pass found the midfielder in space. Nainggolan didn't hesitate and struck a perfect shot to the near post.

Wales since equalized through Ashley Williams to put the match all-square at 1.

Recent reports say that Chelsea's focus has shifted away from the Belgian, but there's always a chance they could zero back in on him as the summer drags along. However, moments like these are only going to make Roma even more stingy when it comes to his transfer fee.
