Mere hours after being told by his club manager that he could play for Barcelona if he wanted, Romelu Lukaku went and cemented his credentials by missing an absolute whopper of a sitter in Belgium’s friendly against their beloved lowland neighbours, the Netherlands.

With Belgium trailing 1-0 to a first-half Davy Klaassen penalty, Roberto Martinez sent Lukaku and Thorgan Hazard on for the last 30 minutes or so.

With time ebbing away, the two substitutes linked up to create a golden chance to equalise – Hazard firing a ball across the goalmouth to the unmarked Lukaku, who was stationed mere yards out from a gaping goal…

Yeah, we don’t think Barca are hovering over the phone quite yet – they’re probably quite happy with the front three they’ve already got.

For the record, Belgium did eventually rescue parity in the 82nd minute when Yannick Carrasco lobbed one in from 25 yards…

Nicely done.
