Lukaku makes Belgium history

Inter striker Romelu Lukaku made history this evening by becoming the first man to score 50 goals for Belgium.

The hitman found the net in a Euro 2020 qualifier against San Marino, then soon after added another to take his total tally to 51.

He achieved this feat in only 83 senior caps for his country.

It was part of a crushing 9-0 victory that mathematically sealed Belgium’s place at Euro 2020.

Atalanta wing-back Timothy Castagne rounded out the scoreline in the final minute.

Also on target were Nacer Chadli, Toby Alderweireld, Youri Tielemans, Christian Benteke, Yari Verschaeren and a Cristian Brolli own goal.

The 9-0 result allowed Belgium to equal their all-time international record victory.
