Lukaku Doubtful for Belgium

Lukaku Doubtful for Belgium

The international break we`re currently into will see the majority of the World Cup 2018 places allocated.

Belgium, who have already qualified, face Bosnia this weekend.

Amongst the Belgium squad is Manchester United`s star striker, Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku has made an instant impact since joining Manchester United from Everton but it appears that his participation in the World Cup qualifier this weekend, is in doubt.

Reports emanating from the Belgian camp that the striker has a minor ankle injury.

Thankfully, with Belgian having already qualified, their manager, the former Everton boss, Roberto Martinez, has spoken sensibly, remarking to the media,

'He is very uncertain for Saturday, we will make a decision on Friday. It is difficult for him.

'Lukaku wants to play. He hasn't trained with the group, he has a sore ankle and it is important he gets fully recovered. We will give him as long as he can.

'We are talking to Manchester United closely. We are careful that we won't rush him into anything.'

Hopefully, Martinez will decide to rest the big-man thereby preventing any chance of the minor ankle problem getting worse.
