Brussels:

Belgium winger Eden Hazard has acknowledged he was a bitter disappointment at the World Cup after he failed to have a decisive impact on the team's run to the quarterfinals.

Hazard said in Wednesday editions of Sudpresse that "the criticism targeted at me was justified."

While Belgium was generally lauded for winning its first four games before losing 1-0 to Argentina in the quarterfinals, Hazard was targeted for his lackluster performances during the 2-1 win over the United States in the second round, and the game against Argentina.

He said "it didn't work out the way it had hoped it would."

The 23-year-old Chelsea player said he was already looking forward to the 2016 European Championship in France.
