Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is back on song after he netted twice to help his Belgium team to a 2-1 victory over Switzerland in their United Nations League (UNL) clash on Friday night.

The 25-year-old came into the game on the back of a five-game scoreless run.

He gave the Red Devils of Belgium the lead with thirteen second half minutes gone off an assist from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) right-back Thomas Meunier.

It was his 44th international goal in the colours of Belgium.

The visitors pushed for an equaliser and they were rewarded when Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco gave away a needless freekick which led to the goal from substitute Mario Gavranovic.

He scored his side’s equaliser seven minutes after coming on for Haris Seferovic.

Belgium regained the lead eight minutes later when Romelu Lukaku finished off a flowing move involving Chelsea star Eden Hazard and Napoli forward Dries Mertens.

It was his 45th international strike as he extends the lead as the highest goalscorer in the history of the Belgian national team.

Belgium thereafter held on against their opponents to maintain their perfect record in the United Nations League having beaten Iceland 3-0 in their opening game in League A Group 2 last month.

Why Chelsea fans should be worried, Antonio Rudiger
