Romelu Records Record Breaking
Romelu Lukaku’s four goals in Belgium’s 5-0 win over Azerbaijan on Sunday set a record for scoring in one European Championship qualification campaign.
This striker has scored 14 goals in eight games, one more than his previous best of 13, which was shared by David Healy (2006 from Northern Ireland) and Robert Lewandowski (2016 from Poland).
Lukaku scored a hattrick in the first matchday against Sweden before scoring twice against Estonia.
Lewandowski (80) is two goals behind him on the all-time list of top international goal scorers.
Didier Deschamps, France’s manager, delivered an incisive halftime team speech during the 14-0 victory over Gibraltar.
Kylian Mbappe, the Les Bleus captain, scored a hattrick while also contributing three assists.
Gibraltar’s centre-back Ethan Santos was sent off for an rash tackle in the 15th-minute on debutant Warren Zaire Emery, which led to the savage mauling.
Deschamps praised his team for their performance in the first period, saying: “Full marks to the boys.”
Let’s do more of the exact same thing in the second. We’ll keep things simple and score whenever possible.
There are no limitations. Everyone should be equally determined. You could have a record of 10-0. “Don’t be afraid to play, boys.”
Steven Gerrard called Cristiano Ronaldo “the best player of all time” while waxing poetic about the Saudi Pro League.
In the summer of 2016, the Liverpool legend was appointed manager at Al-Ettifaq, and ex-Reds players Giorginio Waijnaldum and Jordan Henderson joined him in Dammam.
Gerrard stated: “The signing of Ronaldo, or the goat in our language as we like to call him was huge. He arrived in January.
He still had plenty of football left to give.
“I watched some matches and some highlights from a distance for the past six months. I looked at Ronaldo’s results in the league.
I think that from then on, everyone was talking about the League around the globe.
After Cristiano’s signing, more talent, big names and skills were added to the league.
