Belgium attacker Eden Hazard has claimed that his country will find it difficult to beat France if Chelsea teammate N'Golo Kante "is at his best" for Les Bleus.

France and Belgium will lock horns on Tuesday night in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup.

The match will see Hazard come face to face with Kante, and the Belgium captain has insisted that his country need to ensure that the holding midfielder has a poor game in St Petersburg.

"I play all year with Kante. He is the best in the world in his position. When he is at his best, you have a 95% chance to win the game," Hazard told beIN Sport.

Hazard has scored twice and registered two assists in four World Cup appearances for Belgium this summer.
