Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed that this summer’s World Cup is the last chance for Belgium’s golden generation.
Roberto Martinez’s side are currently one of the best teams in the 2018 World Cup and they might now have the most talented lineups in their history.

📈TENDENCIA FCL✈️ – ~Romelu Lukaku ha anotado (2) dobletes en lo que lleva de Mundial, pero lo destacable es que lo ha hecho de manera consecutiva (Panamá y Túnez). Esto no pasaba desde hace (32) años en el Mundial de México (1986), el último jugador que lo hizo fue Diego Armando Maradona ante Inglaterra y Bélgica!✨⚽️🇧🇪🔝 – #Football #RomeluLukaku #Belgica #Rusia2018 #TendenciaFCL #Futnewscl
The Red Devils have failed to get past the quarter-final stage at Euro 2016 but they are now having an impressive start to the World Cup in Russia.
Belgium have managed to secure their two wins in Group G as they already sealed a place the last 16 of the campaign.
“This might be the last tournament for our generation because a few players are going to retire so we’re playing for them and trying to leave a bit of history,” the Manchester United striker told BBC Sport.
“In the last tournaments that we played, we set the bar so high then we didn’t reach our objectives. Now we’re just trying to enjoy it.”
“That’s the most important thing. Football is all about having fun – but playing to win at the same time. When you find the right balance there’s so much more to enjoy.”
Lukaku is now joint-top scorer at the World Cup on four goals alongside Portugal and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
