Lukaku ruled out of Belgium’s trip to Cyprus

Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out of Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Cyprus due to a foot injury.

The Manchester United striker, 25, missed Belgium’s 3-1 win over Russia on Thursday because of the issue.

He last featured in United’s 2-0 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, missing the FA Cup quarter-final defeat against Wolves.

While head coach Roberto Martinez initially hoped Lukaku would be able to face Cyprus on Sunday, Belgium confirmed the striker would miss the trip.

“@RomeluLukaku9 will not travel with us to Cyprus this morning due to a foot injury,” they wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
