Lukaku breaks another goals record
Romelu Lukaku was on the scoresheet again for Belgium in Saturday’s thumping 5-2 victory over Tunisia as he broke Jan Ceulemans’s goals record for major tournaments.
Lukaku registered his third and fourth strikes of the 2018 World Cup in the first half in Moscow and in doing so he made it seven goals in major tournaments to take him ahead of Ceulemans at the top of the Belgium scoring charts.
The United striker is already his country’s record goalscorer and he’ll be delighted to have reached another landmark as he continues to impress in Russia. Roberto Martinez was taking no chances with his star frontman though after he received treatment on his ankle during the first half. And he departed the action as a precaution on 59 minutes, to be replaced by his Reds' team-mate Marouane Fellaini.
The win for Belgium keeps them top of Group A and their place in the last 16 will be confirmed on Sunday if England avoid defeat to Panama.
