He says himself that he is not interested, but Romelu Lukaku could be world cup-topschutter can be. With his two goals, he is already well on the way. Well on its way to become final at the sounding of wereldspitsen to scissors. According to the figures he is in some ways even better.
“I stand there in the first place, to goals.’ It seemed as though Romelu Lukaku that casually told VRT reporter Peter Vandenbempt, but nothing is less true. Big Rom knows very well what he says. And he wants to just to make it clear to all his detractors: take me just finish on my goals. And those who do, can only lament that Lukaku at the age of 25, the world summit has been reached. Because he scores easier for his country than Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski.
‘Lukaku is a real goalscorer,” says coach Roberto Martinez, who already worked with him at Everton. “He is always a threat for the opponents. It is a combination of instinct and automatic reactions. But he has a lot of confidence when he is in front of goal.”

Now there is – even with a Batshuayi in shape – in no way doubt about its status as a holder. Even more, Lukaku is today a leader for the Red Devils. Monday in the circle for the game against Panama was the Lukaku that the group addressed.

With just seven baltoetsen that can not be denied, but even without the ball he often two defenders to the talk. Eden Hazard said there that ” we “with a man less played’. But should we be sorry if he there two binnentrapt? ‘That depends on the type of race. By the style of play of Panama, we could not directly to Romelu. There placed two men on him. The plan was to use the space on the flanks to use. Romelu just had to be the terminus of our action. He scored twice, so he has done well.’
