Romelu Lukaku, Belgian Goal Monster is in Happy Mood

Romelu Lukaku is enjoying a positive performance trend, especially when defending Belgian national team. His sharpness does not seem to fade.

Romelu Lukaku is often criticized for his slow and blunt appearance, especially when he was in Manchester United uniform. However, in fact he is a different goal monster when competing for the Belgian national team.

In National Team

Lukaku’s achievements are now impressive with a record of 32 goals in the last 30 matches for his country. In total, the Congolese bomber sharpened his record as the all-time top scorer of the Belgian national team. He has carved 49 goals in 82 appearances.

Latest, Lukaku contributed one of Belgium’s 4 goals against Scotland in the European Cup 2020 qualifying match in Glasgow on Monday (9/9/2019). He was credited with helping Belgium top the Group I standings with a perfect report card. They managed to get 6 wins from 6 qualifying parties. Lukaku himself contributed 4 goals in this stage.

In Inter Milan

The sharpness that Lukaku consistently showed in the national team also showed in his new club, Inter Milan. The 26-year-old scored 2 goals in the first 2 weeks in Serie A season 2019-2020.

No wonder the Belgian coach, Roberto Martinez, said Lukaku looked more cheerful and focused since moving from Manchester United to Inter. In fact, Roberto Martinez considers that the height of boredom at Manchester United has undermined Romelu Lukaku.

Some things that happened to Man United’s preseason some time ago do show indications that the striker is not comfortable at Old Trafford. Lukaku reportedly left the Red Devils preseason without permission to train alone with his old team, Anderlecht.

In addition, Lukaku also did not play a single match match for Man United in Australia, with the club saying he was injured. Now, in his Inter Milan uniform, the 190 centimeter striker has a different hue in Martinez’s eyes.

“I think he is now facing his greatest career in football by moving to Inter Milan,” Martinez said.

“He was very encouraged to perform the best for the national team, so I was very impressed with his happiness,” he said.

Romelu Lukaku was bailed out by Inter Milan from Man United at a cost of 65 million euros. The nominal makes the former Chelsea striker the most expensive purchase in the history of Inter.
