Eden Hazard is set to make a nostalgic return to Stamford Bridge this weekend, just eight months after announcing his retirement from football. The former Belgian international, who enjoyed a prolific seven-year stint at Chelsea, will participate in the Soccer Aid charity match.

Hazard, who left Chelsea for Real Madrid in 2019, will join the Rest of the World squad in this annual event that features celebrities and ex-professionals playing to raise money for UNICEF. During his time at Chelsea, Hazard made 352 appearances, scored 110 goals, and provided 85 assists.

The Soccer Aid match, which has previously raised over £90 million for UNICEF, will pit an England XI against a World XI. This year’s roster includes stars such as Sir Mo Farah, Usain Bolt, Danny Dyer, and Lee Mack. Hazard will be in good company, playing alongside fellow Chelsea legends Petr Cech, Michael Essien, and Jon Obi Mikel.

Hazard appears to be taking his preparation for the game seriously. He shared an Instagram post of himself cycling up a mountain, captioned with “Climbing to the top.”

Former Chelsea midfielder and manager Frank Lampard will coach the England team, which includes Joe Cole and Gary Cahill. Soccer Aid promises to be a memorable event, not only for its charitable cause but also for reuniting these football icons.
