The match against Azerbaijan became a kind of show for Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian national team forward made a poker move in the first half.
After this match, Romelu Lukaku now has 14 goals in Euro 2024 qualifying. The Belgian set a performance record in one qualifying round for the European Championship, the UEFA official website reports.
Romelu Lukaku also de facto guaranteed himself the status of top scorer in Euro 2024 qualifying. Cristiano Ronaldo finished the qualifying round with 10 goals. Theoretically, Kylian Mbappe (9 goals) and Harry Kane (8 goals) can catch up with Lukaku. However, even with their scoring talent, such a situation looks incredible. Moreover, in the last round their teams will not play against obvious outsiders: the French will meet the Greeks away, and the British will also meet the North Macedonians away.
