Romelu Lukaku

 

Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out of Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Cyprus due to a foot injury.

Lukaku who missed Belgium’s 3-1 win over Russia on Thursday because of the issue will not travel with the team to Cyprus.

The Ex-Chelsea star last featured in the 2-0 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, missing the FA Cup quarter-final defeat against Wolves.

While head coach Roberto Martinez initially hoped Lukaku would be able to face Cyprus on Sunday, Belgium confirmed the striker would miss the trip.

“@RomeluLukaku9 will not travel with us to Cyprus this morning due to a foot injury,” they wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

“Get well soon, Romelu!”

Lukaku last played competitively during United’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal on March 10.


 

Belgium got past Russia thanks to an Eden Hazard brace and a Youri Tielemans strike, and they will be aiming for a second win in Group I when they visit Cyprus.

However, it is likely his club that will be more anxious to see the frontman make a swift recovery.

United are already without Alexis Sanchez, while Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford both withdrew from international duty with injuries, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately short of options at centre-forward.
