With Belgium trailing to Kostas Mitroglou's goal in the World Cup qualifier but with a man advantage following Panagiotis Tachtsidis' sending off, manager Roberto Martinez had thrown Lukaku's Everton club-mate Kevin Mirallas on.
But it was the prolific 23-year-old who levelled the match late on, chesting the ball down and swivelling instinctively to fire inside the near post to make it 1-1.
It was his 28th goal in 31 games for club and country and further evidence to support his burgeoning self-confidence.
Greece would finish the match with nine men when Giorgos Tzavelas was also dismissed in stoppage time after Stefanos Kapino had denied Lukaku a winner.

The value in him staying another year should far outweigh what we might lose if we hold him to his contract, and if he is as good as he thinks he is, let him prove it by helping the club that has really 'made' him, into the promised land he seeks next year, instead of him looking elsewhere in a team where other players' efforts have secured Champions League qualification, so he can jump on someone else's bandwagon.
Alternatively, he may then find his dream with us, or end up at a club who exit the Champions League early while we go on to greater things. Be very careful Rom. Historically, Rooney aside, not that many players who have left us in big-money deals have been ultimately successful.

He said, "We will all be there for him when he comes back to Finch Farm, we are always going to be there for him 100%" and smirks the smallest of smiles. Is that him saying or hinting that he is himself is staying with Everton? Have I looked too deeply into that comment?
Not that I'm overly concerned. I did say I wouldn't comment further on his future but that comment intrigued me.

But, while the speculation about Lukaku has been going on, surely a more pressing matter is Barkley's contract negotiations. We have had no comment from Barkley or his agent and, as Koeman has said, if he doesn't commit to Everton, then he will be sold this summer.
At least with Lukaku, Everton can play hard ball... but, with Barkley, the matter is far more urgent.

We also need to secure Barkley!

Let's not forget that Everton is a form team and doing well. I'm sure, once he goes into a dry spell, the lead foot will return and he won't be worth 10 bob.
If the player is under contract for two more seasons, why would we sell? Not like we are totally skint and in 2 years, he can go wherever he wants. We should be winning stuff by then anyway... League Cup, FA Cup, Europa League...

Let's wait and see what happens at the end of the season. Moshiri is shrewd and will have his own game plan for the club once the season is over.
Everton hopefully progress plans off the field and the new stadium project and Koeman, Moshiri and the board will maintain the positive momentum with the squad.

£80 million a good price, or even consider bids of that for Kane? No, thought not!

We shouldn't be dictated to by any player and it should be up to us if we then choose to let him go in his last year. If we are serious about joining the top table, we should be keeping Rom whether he likes it or not.
