World number one side Belgium began their international friendlies prior to Euro 2020 with a disappointing draw against a stubborn Greece.

Belgium took the lead thanks Thorgan Hazard. The Borussia Dortmund winger scored his sixth goal for his country after he exchanged passes with Atletico Madrid star Yannick Carrasco, and coolly converted at the near post.

Kyriakos Papadopoulos attempted a diving header that struck the post, which Georgios Tzavellas was first to on the rebound as he equalised for the Greeks.

The 2004 European Championship winners Greece, failed to qualify for this year’s Euro 2020.

Belgium were without injured Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne who suffered a fractured nose and eye socket during last Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final defeat by Chelsea and waits to see if he will be fit enough to participate in the tournament.

Belgium face Croatia in their final friendly on Sunday and Roberto Martinez’s side come into the tournament as one of the favourites to win the European Championship.

Belgium finished in third place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and will want to go one step further at Euro 2020.

They begin their campaign against Russia on 12 June, followed by Denmark on 17 June and rounding off their final Group B fixture against Finland on 21 June.
