Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku (on loan at Everton) stars for Belgium v Croatia – individual highlights
- October 12, 2013
What a season it has been for Romelu Lukaku!
And, how special must it have been for the Chelsea/Everton striker to score the goals that took much-fancied Belgium to the World Cup.
Still seemingly on a mission to prove Jose Mourinho was wrong to ship him out to Everton on loan for the season, Lukaku has been sensational for the Toffees and was clinical against Croatia on Friday night.
On 15 minutes, Lukaku powered through from a Steven Defour pass to put Belgium one up.
And, on 38, Lukaku sealed Belgium’s spot at Brazil 2014 with a sensational run from the halfway line, holding off two defenders on the way to the Croatia goal.
Now for the obligatory statistic: Including internationals, Romelu Lukaku has scored more goals this season (6) than Fernando Torres, Demba Ba & Samuel Eto’o combined (4).
But, surely Chelsea will have the last laugh – after all where do you think Romelu Lukaku will be playing in 2014/2015?!
