After he made the move, Hazard glanced back over his should to playfully gauge Carrasco’s reaction.
The pair are known to be good friends off the pitch and it is likely that Hazard shoved him purely in jest, with Belgium already 3-1 up and cruising.
Having fallen behind to a 24th minute Bryan Ruiz goal, England’s Group G rivals stormed back in front with a Romelu Lukaku brace before Michy Batshuayi added the fourth.
