Everton fans react on Twitter as Lukaku scores brace for Belgium
By Amir Mir
Romelu Lukaku scored a brace for Belgium in their 4-0 thumping of Cyprus in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening, and Everton supporters urged their striker to take that form into the Premier League.
Lukaku opened the scoring for his country after 13 minutes, before he doubled the lead with a simple header from close range on the hour mark.
With 16 minutes to go on the clock former Toffees manager Roberto Martinez withdrew the forward from action, as the Red Devils went on to pick up a comfortable three points.
One Everton fan jokingly wondered if their star man remembers what a goal looks like, after the 23-year-old has failed to find the net for his club so far this season.
Another supporter called for Lukaku to save his goals for Ronald Koeman. Overall though, the Goodison Park faithful were pleased to see their striker in among the goals and they congratulated his efforts.
