Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku insists he should be put in the world class bracket ahead of his country’s Euro 2020 last-16 encounter with Portugal.

Lukaku’s impressive stats at international level undoubtedly add credence to his claim, the Inter Milan star has scored 63 goals in 96 games for Belgium. 

Whilst speaking at a press conference before tonight’s clash with Portugal; the 28-year-old has stated his case that he should be recognised as one of the best strikers in the world.

Lukaku says that he’s on the same level as Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski (pictured)

‘People have tended to describe things this way.’ Said Lukakau

‘When they talk about [Robert] Lewandowski, [Karim] Benzema, [Luis] Suarez, [Harry] Kane, they would say it’s world class level and with me it’s always about being in good form.

‘In the last two years I think I have shown it’s not just good form.

‘I belong with that group, I am at that level.’

Lukaku scored 30 goals for Inter Milan last season as they romped to the Serie A title

The Inter Milan star is amongst a host of players that have scored three goals at Euro 2020 so far, making him the tournament’s joint second-top scorer along with Robert Lewandowski.

He netted a brace during Belgium’s 3-0 win over Russia in their opening match and also scored during their 2-0 victory over Finland in their final group game. 

That’s one more goal than France’s Karim Benzema and three more than Harry Kane who is yet to score at the tournament. 

Lukaku was in inspired form for Inter last season; scoring 30 goals and notching ten assists to fire the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title since 2010.
