Eden Hazard says he could not captain Chelsea in the way John Terry does after being handed the armband for Belgium. Juventus Jerseys . Belgium named Hazard as captain for their friendly against the Netherlands on Wednesday, despite Vincent Kompany being included in the initial line-up, and the 25-year-old will again lead his country in their World Cup Qualifier against Estonia on Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1.  Belgium vs Estonia November 13, 2016, 7:40pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Hazard has high hopes for leading Belgium but revealed he is reluctant to think about becoming Chelsea captain while Terry is around.  Its good to be the captain, I enjoy this, Hazard said. I try to be a leader on the pitch, maybe its new for me now, maybe one year Im the captain.I want to lead Belgium to the World Cup. I want to win something with the country, I hope we will, but its too far now. Hazard believes he is a different type of leader to Terry Asked if he could see himself becoming Chelsea captain, Hazard said: I dont know, we will see.John Terry is still there. I dont want to touch John Terry.I cant be like John Terry, I cant be like him. As a captain I dont talk too much, I try to talk with my feet on the pitch. This is my job. Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez says neither Manchester Citys Vincent Kompany nor Tottenhams Mousa Dembele are fit enough to face Estonia on Sunday Hazard, who has five goals in his last five games for Chelsea, has put his improved performances for his club down to Antonio Contes choice of a 3-4-3 formation, admitting it relieves him of certain duties. He said: With Chelsea I just need to focus on my offensive work, and defensively the wing-back is there to defend. I think this is the change.Hazard was joined by brother and former Chelsea team-mate Thorgan Hazard for the first time for Belgium in their 1-1 draw with the Netherlands, and Eden Hazard revealed he has plans to one day be joined by a third brother.  Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Its good, he said. I hope it will be a lot of games together and with the third one (Ethan Hazard) also, he is still young but yes I hope the dream can be true one day.

Ryu (8-3) allowed a run and three hits in six innings and struck out six in his 13th start. In his first 13 starts last season -- his first in the major leagues -- the left-hander was 8-5 with a 2.85 ERA. This was the ninth time this year that Ryu has allowed fewer than three earned runs, and he is 7-0 in those games. Carlo Pinsoglio Jersey . -- Even as Chris Paul remained evasive about his future, he did what team leaders are expected to do. . - The Oakland Athletics say they are stopping negotiations to extend their lease at the Coliseum.TORONTO -- A smiling Jon (Bones) Jones walked on to a makeshift stage Thursday to confront underdog challenger Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson. Always thinking of a new angle, Jones was wielding a smartphone in front of him. His view of the square-off would soon be posted on Instagram, the UFC light-heavyweight champion told the media in front of him. Jones (18-1) took to social media soon after, managing to squeeze a biblical verse, Nike and Gatorade into the same tweet. "There is nothing special about me, I just work extremely hard," he wrote. "Anything can happen." A picture below showed a smiling Jones, a Nike swoosh prominent on his hoodie, pointing to a bottle of Gatorade -- his latest sponsor. To further make his point, he added Phillipians 4:13 and the hashtags for both companies. Fighter, man of faith and six-foot-four, 205-pound billboard, Jones is currently the brightest star in mixed martial arts. "His life doesnt suck, right," UFC president Dana White said dryly. "Hes got a lot to be happy about." A victory at UFC 165 Saturday and Jones will set the record for most consecutive title defences (six) in UFC light-heavyweight history. He already holds the record for most submissions (five) by a light-heavyweight and is tied for most finishes (nine). A former junior college wrestling champion with an 84.5-inch reach, Jones size and length make him hard to penetrate and tough to defend. At 6-5, Gustafsson (15-1) is one inch taller and has good striking skills. But while the 26-year-old Swede has won his last six fights, he hasnt faced the kind of opposition that Jones has. The bookies have made Jones anywhere from a 9-1 to 20-1 favourite to beat Gustafsson. White usually dismisses such odds. But he was slightly more circumspect Thursday. "I think that theyre making lines that they dont want a lot of money going on Jones because they think Jones is going to win. Thats the way the book works," said White, no stranger to the betting window. "Jones is good, really good." About the only people who believe Gustafsson can win are those in the challengers camp, although most pundits are quick to cover themselves by saying its a sport where anything can happen. Gustafsson, a lanky likable Swede with battered ears, doesnt think he is being disrespected. "Not at all. I dont takes anything personally. I dont read too much. I dont think too much. Im going to go in there and shock the world on Saturday," he said. "Im more than prepared," he added. "I cant wait to get in there. Im just living the dream right now. Ive got a one in a lifetime shot and Im going to do the best of it." Jones, 26, believes this defence will go the way of all the others. "I think I have a lot more tools in this fight to win the fight," he said. Federico Bernardeschi Jersey. . "Im going to do all kinds of unpredictable spinning elbows, flying knees, shots, fake shots, all types of stuff," he added. "He really needs to be on his game." Jones seemed less than impressed by Gustafssons striking, saying hes not fighting a world boxing champion. "Im fighting a guy who throws punches," he said. "Alexanders boxing defence, Ive said it a lot of times now, is not that good ... Hes a good puncher, he has pretty good footwork. Not a great boxer." When the Swede stood next to Jones in front of photographers, he couldnt resist putting his arm behind the champion so he could touch the shiny championship belt slung over his shoulder. A smiling Jones pulled away. "Thats as close as youre going to get," he said. Jones joins welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre under the Gatorade flag. The Montreal MMA star has blazed the way with blue-chip sponsorships including Under Armour. Its a long way from fighters advertising the local gun shop. Jones can be forgiven for Thursdays blatant plug in that his deal with Gatorade had only been announced hours before. Jones will wear the Gatorade logo on his shorts when he walks into the cage Saturday night against the Swede. Chances are he will wear a Nike T-shirt on his walk through the Air Canada Centre. Jones, who signed with Nike in August 2012, wore a "Bones Knows" Nike shirt at UFC 152 in Toronto last fall. As for Phillippians 4:13, Jones always wears that. It is tattooed on his chest. It references the verse "I can do all this through him who gives me strength." Gustafssons ink is all about winning. He adds a sharks tooth tattoo on his arm for every win. Jones was the picture of calm Thursday as media swarmed around him. White says he has adjusted to life as champion, pulling back from going down the wrong path in the wake of a DUI charge after a May 2012 incident that saw him crash his Bentley in upstate New York. "Everything changes when youre the champion," White said. "Obviously the attention, the money, everybodys gunning after you. Theres a lot of pressure. "Jon Jones has really turned around and changed his life in the last year. Hes a young guy, he got that belt, you saw what happens when fame and money and all that stuff starts to come together. Im really happy with the way hes turned around." Jones, who meditates the day of his fight, does seems comfortable in his own skin as champion. "Its a great honour. To be the best in the world at something, and to travel to different countries and know that youre the champion of the world, its one of the coolest feelings that a man can ask for."
