Lukaku on target in friendly victory

, 28 May, 18comments  |  Jump to most recent
Romelu Lukaku scored Belgium's first goal in a 2-1 win over Switzerland as the two nations continued their preparations for Euro2016.

His Everton team-mate Shani Tarashaj was handed his third cap as a second-half substitute but he couldn't get the Swiss back level, particularly after they were diminished in numbers following Haris Serefovic's sending off.

Blerin Dzemaili had equalised for the home side but Kevin de Bruyne struck what proved to be the winner.

Elsewhere last night, Ramiro Funes Mori featured for Argentina as they beat Honduras 1-0 in a warm-up game for the Copa America which starts next month.

Rom has to perform in the Euros if we are to get big cash for him as he obviously wants away.

Let's hope we are shouting dough, and not doohhh as far as Rom is concerned.

I wouldn't get over excited about that goal. it could have been scored while lying in a deck chair, reading the racing post!

However ,if it adds to his value, so much the better.

He'll have lots to say about it in his daily column

His dad said he needs to play for Barzil instead of Belguim.

Oh well that should strengthen our hand for his price tag.

Keep scoring, justify the pricetag.

Wonder if he will stay if Simeone is announced as Everton's new manager.

I think we should sign his dad, Brian. Keep him happy like.

Lukaku and Co. are burning all the bridges. The difference between Rom and everybody else is, most people cross the bridge first. Still under contract, last time I checked.

I hope Lukaku was watching Ronaldo taking a penalty. That's how you do it.

Because Ronaldo never misses penalties right? Like the one he missed in a defeat to Bulgaria 2months ago, and the many others. Of course, Ronaldo was also missing most of that match, not contributing much as Atletico dominated the second half.

David Barks: Looked like Ronaldo was not fit to play but played instead, probably had no option.

If you looked at most of the penalties taken in the penalty shoot out this evening, most of the players had technique and knew where to place the shot in the correct part of the goal as the goal-keepers dived the wrong way. Lukaku's 2 previous penalties were lacking in an ability to beat the goal-keepers, who guessed correctly which way to dive.

David - have you ever seen Lukaku take a good penalty? He's rubbish at them!

He certainly can't have been watching our Leighton take penalties, if he had he wouldn't miss many, what's Leighton's figures, missed one is it??

The best thing Unsworth did when he took charge was put Baines back on to penalty duties. Hopefully that will remain now. Who knows how many points and games we could have won with him taking them instead of Lukaku?

Steavey, the pens were of a high quality. But how can you say the keepers dived??!! The AM keeper was a JOKE. Virtually every pen went to his left and rather than dive to his left everytime he stood still and did fuck all. The most pathetic goaly display at pens ever.

He's just scored a late equaliser against Finland . . . amazing what he can do when he wants a move.
