Romelu Lukaku a Doubt vs. England; Ankle Injury Diagnosed as Ligament Damage


If England, as expected, defeat Panama in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday, then the victor of the game between the Three Lions and Belgium will decide who finishes top of Group G.

Belgium, who are one of the dark horses to win the World Cup, got their campaign in Russian Federation underway with a comfortable win over the South American minnows, with two goals coming from Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku was highlighted this week after Eden Hazard admitted speaking to the striker at halftime of their World Cup win over Panama.

By contrast, Howard has averaged 17.4 points, 12.7 rebound and two blocks per game since joining the league in 2004. Shortly after, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania confirmed the deal and the pieces being flipped.

"His role in the national team has become that".

"I just told Romelu [Lukaku] if we want to win the game we need him, not just as a scorer to score goals, but we want him to be involved in the build-up". I know Rom well, I spent the biggest amount in Everton's history on a player because of the quality of his finishing, not because he was a player that could contribute things other than scoring goals. I wouldn't expect any player to work towards an individual award.

"So I think there are a lot of question marks, but I think what does remain is the fact that this on paper is one of the best teams at this tournament and if they get it right they can do very well".
