The forward had pulled out of a session on Tuesday amid fears he had aggravated an Achilles problem and would miss the match at Hampden, only to be cleared to take part in training yesterday.
That will cheer an already excited Belgian support, with 8000 fans having bought tickets to watch the game on a giant screen in Hasselt. It is one of 60 Belgian towns planning to hold outdoor screenings.
However, should Hazard not feature against the Scots, Belgium will be able to replace him with one of several attacking players of consummate ability. Alongside Hazard, Moussa Dembele, Kevin de Bruyne, Necer Chadli,Dries Mertens and Kevin Mirallas were all selected for the squad to face Scotland. The latter is considered to be the most likely player to step in should Hazard not make the starting XI.
Mirallas, who plays his club football for Everton, is aware of how valuable Hazard is to his national side - not least because of a £32m valuation - but is also confident that he would be an able replacement for the Chelsea playmaker.
"It is a World Cup year and we are all working very hard to reach Brazil - nobody wants to miss that flight," said Mirallas. "Everybody wants to play their part in reaching that goal, and play every game. I will certainly be disappointed if I do not start against Scotland."
