Inter Milan striker, Romelu Lukaku has shockingly described himself as “a killer on the field” as he approaches his 50th international goal for Belgium.
The former Man Utd opened the scoring on Monday in Belgium’s 4-0 win over Scotland as the Red Devils preserved their 100 percent record in Euro 2020 qualifying Group I and is now one goal shy of a half-century for his country. As Belgium’s all-time leading scorer, the 26-year-old admits though ruthless on the pitch, he is not pre-occupied by potential milestones off it.
“I’ll get to that 50th goal. I have to say that I was more concerned with the 30th, when I was able to break the record,” Lukaku said post-match.
“I don’t dream about the 50. I really don’t. I’m relaxed. I am a killer on the field, but not next to it.
“I was happy with that goal. It was a long time ago that we had scored another goal on the counter. If we can play like this, we are deadly. The best counter-attacking team in the world.”
After seeing Kevin De Bruyne set up three of Belgium’s goals, Lukaku also turned provider against Scotland and was impressed by his team-mate’s sweet first-time finish.
“I am happy that I could give an assist to De Bruyne. He finished it nicely. The finish was more beautiful than the pass itself.” Lukaku said.
