  • Romelu Lukaku was impressive for Belgium during their friendly clash vs England
  • The Chelsea forward assisted one of the two goals scored by Aston Villa's Tielemans
  • The Wembley tie ended in a 2-2 draw, with Jude Bellingham equalising at the death

Romelu Lukaku was one of the biggest talking points during England's friendly meeting with Belgium on Tuesday night.

The Chelsea striker, who is currently on loan with AS Roma, was part of the Belgium team that salvaged a draw during the cracker.

According to GiveMeSport, the match saw Lukaku produce an unbelievable assist to set up Youri Tielemans.

Tielemans needed just 11 minutes of action to open the scoring for the Red Devils at Wembley Stadium.

Ivan Toney restored parity for the Three Lions six minutes later from the spot, only for Tielemans to put the visitors ahead once again in the 36th minute.

However, the Aston Villa star could not have found the back of the net were it not for Lukaku's sublime assist.

In a video capturing the moment, the former Manchester United attacker can be seen taking full control of the ball after an error from Lewis Dunk before delivering a sumptuous ball with the outside of the boot to lay it on the plate for Tielemans.

Fans praise Lukaku after incredible assist

Lukaku's unbelievable assist for Belgium sparked wild reactions among fans, with some taking to social media praising the towering forward.

@badboy_jerry reckoned:

"If Chelsea is unable to sign a world-class striker in the summer, I am open to the idea of Chelsea keeping Romelu Lukaku for next season. He will cook."

@TwoTerty_ observed:

"Lukaku left Chelsea and became a footballer again."

@joekrishnan added:

"That’s the first time I’ve seen Lukaku sprint in about three years. Certainly didn’t show that desire at Chelsea. Sublime assist for Tielemans."

@TheOnlyQuam posted:

"This Lukaku I’m watching can still save Chelsea."

@packedac concluded:

"I’ve always had this belief and I’ll say it again."

Romelu Lukaku never needed Chelsea. Chelsea needed Lukaku.

Lukaku has been incredible for Belgium through the years, with the striker boasting an impressive 83 goals for his country in 114 appearances.
