Romelu Lukaku is currently the man of the moment.
After an excellent start to his loan spell at Everton and crucially the two goals that took Belgium to the World Cup on Friday night in Croatia, everyone is talking about the Chelsea striker.
In Belgium, as we pointed out yesterday, they have been producing pictures of their awesome current side when they were kids.
There were many who questioned whether that really was Romelu Lukaku in 2002 but it appears the former Anderlecht striker was always a foot taller than his peers.
So much so, that had he not been born in Antwerp, there would be serious questions over whether Lukaku had told fibs about his real age.
The picture above from Romelu Lukaku’s time at Lierse, in a game against Feyenoord, from 2003 to 2006, when he was 10-13.
