Sport: The Chelsea striker, who has been on loan at Roma this season, put the Belgians ahead after 43 minutes, before doubling his lead 12 minutes into the second half.

It was Lukaku’s first goal for the national team since November last year. He did indeed score four goals against Azerbaijan.

Lukaku has an impressive CV for the Belgian national team. After Saturday’s double, he has 85 goals and 17 assists in 115 international matches.

With ten minutes left on the clock, Arsenal player Leandro Trossard sealed the result.

Belgium have been drawn in Group E and will open the EC against Slovenia on 17 June. Later in the group stage, they will also face Romania and Ukraine.

During the European Championship in 2020, which was played in 2021 due to the pandemic, Belgium made it to the quarter-finals, where they lost to Italy, who later won the entire championship.

Then Lukaku also finished in joint 3rd place on the top scorer list with four complete hits. Only Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick scored more with their five goals each.
