Kevin De Bruyne has backed Eden Hazard's comments that Belgium must win a trophy to avoid wasting their 'Golden Generation' as England did a decade ago.
Hazard is hopeful that the Red Devils, who are in the same World Cup group as England, can make the most of their talented squad and claim silverware at this summer's tournament in Russia.
"Everybody needs to win a trophy," Manchester City man De Bruyne said when asked about Hazard's comments.
"Thirty-two teams are playing in the World Cup. There are 15 teams that are wanting to win the trophy, so 14 teams are going to be disappointed. That's the way it goes in a tournament.
"Everyone tries to prepare the best as possible and in a tournament you need everything - a good group, good form, luck, good circumstances.
"A ref can decide a tournament, so all you can do is prepare yourself mentally, physically, individually and as a team, and hope for the best and do the job you need to do. In the end you can talk about what happened."
