Nations League: Romelu Lukaku scores brilliant goal in Belgium vs France

Romelu Lukaku celebrates his goal for Belgium vs France

Romelu Lukaku hasn't enjoyed great success in front of goal in recent times.

The Belgian is one of the best strikers in the world but has failed to score in his last five Chelsea games.

But he was back on the scoresheet for his country on Thursday evening.

And what a goal it was.

Belgium took a 1-0 lead against France in their Nations League semi-final through Yannick Carrasco.

Lukaku then doubled their lead minutes later after a moment of magic.

Collecting a ball from Kevin De Bruyne, the striker caught Lucas Hernandez out with a brilliant dummy.

He then powered a strike with his weak right-foot past Hugo Lloris and into the net from what seemed like an impossible angle.

That is special. Lukaku is now considered one of the best strikers in the world and his goal against France only emphasises that idea.

Lukaku goal, which was his 68th in 101 international appearances, gave Belgium a two-goal lead going into half-time.

The Red Devils had one foot in the final but they threw it all away in the second 45 minutes.

Goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe restored parity.

Lucas Hernandez then scored a beauty in the 90th minute to win it for France. 

France will now play Spain in the Nations League final on Sunday evening.

Luis Enrique's side ended Italy's 37-game unbeaten streak on Wednesday evening, with Ferran Torres' double giving them a 2-1 victory.
