Romelu Lukaku has scored a stunning goal in Belgium’s 4-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday – and Everton fans have reacted to the goal on Twitter.
Lukaku, 23, scored after 79 minutes in the fixture, escaping the challenge of two defenders before smashing the ball into the top-right corner of the net.
The forward made up for an open goal miss earlier on in the match where he blazed over from five yards.
Supporters on social media praised the striker for his goal with one fan implying Lukaku was similar to Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

Lukaku has enjoyed a strong start to the Premier League this season with the Toffees after bagging five goals and providing two assists in seven games.
The attacker has adapted well to life under new manager Ronald Koeman and his goals have helped the Merseyside outfit pick up 14 points from seven matches in the new campaign.
The former Anderlecht star has scored 125 career goals, more than Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney all had by the age of 23.
Lukaku will now prepare for a clash against Gibraltar on Monday before turning his attentions back to Everton, who face league leaders Manchester City after the break.
