If there's one player that has looked mightily impressive at the World Cup so far, it's Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku has announced his arrival at the competition by firing in four goals in Belgium's first two games against Panama and Tunisia, meaning he leads the scoring charts with a certain Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 25-year-old's former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard said following Lukaku's brace against Tunisia; "He is so confident right now.

"For his second, he dinks it over the goalkeeper with his weaker foot and he's celebrating before it even crosses the line - supremely confident."

That was seconded by Didier Drogba, who was at the Blues when Lukaku arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2011.

The Ivorian revealed he has been giving the Belgian on-field advice, and it seems to be paying dividends with two calm and collected finishes against Tunisia, meaning Belgium top Group G on six points with England facing Panama tomorrow to try and level the tally up.

Lukaku was hobbling towards the end of his time on the pitch though, and manager Roberto Martinez sacrificed him early in the second half to make sure he is fit and firing for a big clash with the Three Lions on June 28.


He had been in great for Manchester United before travelling to Russia, netting 27 goals in 52 appearances in his debut season at Old Trafford.

And his club posted a fantastic tweet in regards to his goalscoring exploits for his nation.

United posted an image of Lukaku confidently strutting across a red carpet last summer as they announced his signing, captioning; "@RomeluLukaku9 entering the #WorldCup Golden Boot conversation like."

As you'd probably expect from such a tweet, it's going viral already, with United and Belgian fans alike tweeting their appreciation of Lukaku.

If he ends up notching the winner against England on Thursday evening though, it will be fair to assume United's media team will probably not be so forthcoming with their praise.
