Macedonia fans politely tell Eden Hazard not to kick them

It's been a couple of months since Eden Hazard was banned three matches from kicking the ball out from under a prone, time wasting ball boy late in Chelsea's Capital One Cup semifinal loss to Swansea, but news of the incident apparently just reached Macedonia. With the Belgian team bringing Hazard to Macedonia for a World Cup qualifier, the locals tried to ensure their safety from the 22-year-old winger's impatience with a banner that read "Hazard please don't kick us!"

Hazard honored the polite request, but he did score in the 62nd minute from the penalty spot to help Belgium to a 2-0 win. Maybe they should've asked him not to do that instead.
