(Watch) Romelu Lukaku scores to put Belgium ahead

Romelu Lukaku scored in his second consecutive match for Belgium as The Red Devils prepare for the World Cup in Russia, starting later this week.

I honestly believe the Manchester United strike will set the world alight this tournament, so much that I have already backed him to become the Premier League’s top scorer at the tournament this summer.

Dries Mertens, who scored the equaliser, assisted Lukaku’s goal to hand Belgium the lead over Costa Rica.

The goal showcased Lukaku’s improved build-up play as he drops deep to start the attack before volleying the ball into the onion.

Belgium should have a much better World Cup campaign than 2014 when Eden Hazard massively underperformed. He’s already linking up rather well with Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and that could be a frightening partnership at the tournament — alongside Lukaku!
