Romelu Lukaku: The most important thing is the team

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku has revealed he’s not overly happy about becoming Belgium’s top scorer as he cares more about the team’s awards.

The powerful striker has had an outstanding season for club and country this time around but has still found himself facing criticism from some sections of both sets of fans.

The European nation have started the World Cup campaign as the dark horses of the competition but should their key player continue his fine form there’s no telling where they’ll end up.

Lukaku managed to grab a brace in his nation’s 3-0 victory over Panama as they aim to top their group to give them the best chances of advancing to the next stages.

The former Everton man is around eight goals ahead of the next Belgian in terms of international goals and around 16 ahead of the next active player in the shape of Eden Hazard.

Romelu has always been a pretty selfless player so it’s no surprise Jose Mourinho values him so highly at United, feeling he’s irreplaceable in terms of leading the line.

The Belgian international suits the Portuguese manager’s tactics so well it’s difficult to imagine either one of Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial overthrowing him from his starting XI spot.
