Romelu Lukaku’s search for Cristiano Ronaldo: a battle for the title of all-time top scorer – Football News

Romelu Lukaku has shown time and time again how important he is to the Red Devils. Now he has placed himself in the list of the greatest of the earth.

Red Devils top scorer

Romelu Lukaku has been the Red Devils’ all-time top scorer for some time. With 85 goals for Belgium, he is far ahead of Eden Hazard (33 goals), who decided to end his active career as a footballer last season.

Thanks to his two goals against Luxembourg, he showed that he is at his best before the upcoming European Championship in Germany. A first half full of missed opportunities, but the Red Devils easily beat Luxembourg and can go to the European Championship with confidence.

These two goals ensured that he surpassed the legend in the list of international scorers.

Lukaku is better than Ferenc Puskas

Thanks to his 84th and 85th goals against Luxembourg, Lukaku surpasses Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas. He scored 84 goals in 89 international matches in his international career. Lukaku himself has already played 115 matches for the Red Devils.

Lukaku is now tied in sixth place with Emirati Ali Mabkhout. He also needed 115 international matches to score 85 goals.

Top 5 in sight

The upcoming European Championship in Germany could be very important for Lukaku personally. This way he has a top 5 in his sights.

Malaysian Mukhtar Dahari is currently in fifth place with 89 goals, and Indian Sunil Chhetri is in fourth place with 93 goals.

To become the all-time international top scorer, Lukaku will have to stick around for a while. Cristiano Ronaldo tops the list with 123 goals, and the Portuguese can add a number of goals in the upcoming European Championship under the wing of Roberto Martinez.
