Eden Hazard has claimed that he and his Belgian teammates will not be afraid of nations such as Spain and Brazil at next year's World Cup.

Belgium booked their place at the tournament for the first time since 2002 on Friday with a 2-1 win over Croatia.

"We have a good team but not yet a great one," Hazard told reporters. "But we do not envy teams like Brazil or Spain in terms of quality. We just lack experience at the moment.

"It's the first finals for the majority of the squad but we are not planning to go to Brazil, play three matches and come home."

Belgium finish their qualifying campaign on Tuesday when they entertain Wales.
