The Chelsea winger and the United striker complement each other perfectly and have already scored together against Sweden, Norway, Bosnia, Estonia, Gibraltar, Cyprus, Mexico, Egypt, Tunisia and Scotland.

In the ‘Martinez era,’ they have multiplied their numbers: in the last 19 matches for BelgiumLukaku has scored 20 goals and Hazard, 10.

Ingason grabbed Lukaku for a penalty scored by Hazard before the Unitedstriker scored from a corner.

Halldorson saved from Kompany, but Lukaku‘s predatory instincts took over.
