Romelu Lukaku to Miss Belgium Match, Doubt for United Clash vs Watford


The foot injury that Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku suffered earlier this month doesn’t seem to be healing up right now. Lukaku missed last weekend’s FA Cup quarterfinal loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers and is a doubt for the home match against Watford on Saturday.

The Belgian national team has now confirmed that Big Rom won’t be traveling with the team for their Euro 2020 qualifier at Cyprus tomorrow.

Lukaku already missed Belgium’s win over Russia this past Thursday, so that’s three straight games, for club and country that he’s been out now. According to interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the injury was suffered in training prior to the FA Cup elimination.

One of the main heroes of the historical comeback over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League, he has 12 goals in 27 appearances (18 starts) for United this season.
