The new Inter attacker can’t stop scoring for club or country, with a notable international milestone now within his grasp
Romelu Lukaku has described himself as “a killer on the field” as he approaches his 50th international goal for Belgium.
Lukaku opened the scoring on Monday in a 4-0 win over Scotland as Belgium preserved their 100 per cent record in Euro 2020 qualifying Group I and is now one goal shy of a half-century for his country.
As the Red Devils’ all-time leading scorer, the 26-year-old admits though ruthless on the pitch, he is not pre-occupied by potential milestones off it.
“I’ll get to that 50th goal,” Lukaku said post-match.
“I have to say that I was more concerned with the 30th, when I was able to break the record.
“I don’t dream about the 50. I really don’t. I’m relaxed. I am a killer on the field, but not next to it. I was happy with that goal. It was a long time ago that we had scored another goal on the counter. If we can play like this, we are deadly. The best counter-attacking team in the world.”
After seeing Kevin De Bruyne set up three of Belgium’s goals, Lukaku also turned provider against Scotland and was impressed by his team-mate’s sweet first-time finish.
“I am happy that I could give an assist to De Bruyne. He finished it nicely,” Lukaku said.
“The finish was more beautiful than the pass itself.”
