Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku set to miss England clash in World Cup

Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku has not recovered in time to face England in Thursday’s final Group G game in Kaliningrad.

Both sides go against each other having already qualified for the last 16 after winning their opening two games with top spot up for grabs.

Manchester United’s Lukaku has missed training this week because of an ankle injury suffered in the 5-2 win over Tunisia last Saturday.

Martinez said: “There is no further damage for Lukaku. A scan brought us good news.

“He is still recovering and Thursday is one day too early for him. But I don’t think it is going to take any longer than that.”
