Lukaku Scores Four as Belgium Crush Azerbaijan 

EURO 2024

Romelu Lukaku scored four first-half goals as Belgium thrashed 10-man Azerbaijan 5-0 in Euro 2024 qualifying  clash.

The 30-year-old now has 83 goals in 113 Belgium games, making him the seventh-highest scorer in international football history.

He headed in Jeremy Doku’s cross before Eddy Israfilov was sent off, then smashed in a second from Timothy Castagne’s knock down, nodded in Wout Faes’ cross, and scored from Orel Mangala’s ball, all before being replaced at half-time.

Leandro Trossard added a late fifth for Belgium from Doku’s ball, with all five goals being set up by England-based players.

This was Belgium captain Lukaku’s first international quadruple, having scored four once before in his club career in Everton’s 6-3 Premier League win over Bournemouth in February 2017.

His quadruple means he has now overtaken Neymar and Lewandowski in international goalscoring.
