(Watch) Lukaku plays significant role in Belgium’s opener against England

Romelu Lukaku played a part in Belgium’s opener against England in the third-place play-off in Russia this evening.

Both countries will find themselves disappointed to be in today’s game and narrowly missing out on the World Cup, which takes place on Sunday at 4pm.

Lukaku will be hoping to catch Harry Kane (6) for the tournament’s Golden Boot award, but the Manchester United striker will be happy to have contributed to the opening goal with a defence-splitting pace from a deep position.
