Barely one week after announcing his retirement from professional football, Eden Hazard graced the football pitch and delivered an assist to Kylian Mbappe’s dad in a charity match.
The ex-Belgium international featured for Varietes CF against Team Calais in the Yellow Pieces charity match and replicated some of his Chelsea moments with an outrageous flick.

The 53-year-old first had the goalkeeper sitting on the turf before tucking home to make it 6-0 for his side in a dramatic fashion.
Hazard was the star of the night, as the former Real Madrid winger also found the back of the net in the encounter plus another assist.
The game was played at the 12,000-capacity Stade de l’Epopee, as the fans were treated to a spectacle with some French football icons.
In midfield, the experienced pair of Didier Deschamps and Claude Puel played alongside ex-Newcastle star, Yohan Cabaye.

"Like father, Like son."
"Was Mbappe’s father a footballer before?"
A fan wrote:
