Belgium’s top scorer Romello Lukaku missed the national team’s training before the closing G-group duel of the World Cup in Russia against England. The striker of Manchester United has four goals since the start of the World Cup 2018 but suffered a trauma in the ankle during the 5-2 win over Tunisia, where he scored twice.

However, according to local Belgian media, Lucacou has not been deposed by the title team for England and has a chance to play, although it is unlikely since he is not part of all the pre-clash activities.
Another star of the Red Devils – Eden Azar – took part in the training, but is not expected to play against the “three lions”, with the coach Roberto Martinez planning to give a chance to the reserves.
Belgium and England will settle for the first place Thursday in Kaliningrad, with potential rivals of Columbia, Japan and Senegal.
“Lukaku is really training in a relaxed mode, his ankle condition improves after the injury in the match with Tunisia, and in the next 24 hours our medical team will do a new study of the injured spot and then become clear and his chances to play against England, according to a press release from the Belgian national team.
