Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has revealed just how Romelu Lukaku is different to England striker Harry Kane, claiming the former gives more towards team play.
The Belgian has been in fine form for club and country this season and is currently attempting to lead his nation to glory, grabbing four goals in two matches so far.
Fellaini has been involved in the World Cup so far as well and should know Lukaku better than most considering they play together for both sides.
United fans will certainly be hoping the striker can carry his form into the start of the next Premier League season but there’ll also be hope he can return as a World Cup winner.
Belgium are the competition’s dark horses and will face Japan next in the round of 16 in their race towards a possible run to the final.
According to the Mirror, Marouane said: “Everyone is talking about the goals Romelu and Harry Kane have scored in Russia and they have both made a great start.
“With Kane England have a striker who can score goals at the top level and we have all seen already at this tournament what he can do. Lets see who can score the most!
“We have Romelu and he is in great form too scoring goals and getting better. He is like Kane – he wants to score goals every time he goes on the pitch.
“But he also helps the team with the way he plays just like at United. He gives everything for the team. He always puts the team first.”
Romelu’s link-up play was criticised when he first joined Manchester United but he’s since come leaps and bounds, making sure he’s always involved in the attack.
He does however still have the tendency to occasionally isolate himself as the striker as called on by Eden Hazard but it’s a part of his game that is disappearing more and more.
