Romelu Lukaku backed to win World Cup Golden Boot

Belgium striker bags a brace against Costa Rica as Red Devils run out 4-1 winners in World Cup warm-up match

Romelu Lukaku has now scored thirteen goals in his past nine Belgium matches after bagging a brace against Costa Rica on Monday night.

The Red Devils came from a goal behind to beat their opponents 4-1, with the Manchester United forward looking menacing ahead of playing at the 2018 World Cup.

Belgium open their account against Panama and the bookmakers have trimmed Lukaku’s Golden Boot odds to 16/1, with bet365 clearly impressed by the striker’s recent form.

William Hill offer a slightly bigger 18/1 although the forward’s odds have been tumbling from 33/1 over the past few months. It is clear that Belgium’s opener could spell goals and he’ll also be relishing the prospect of facing Tunisia before a final Group G clash against England.

Belgium have made it to the business end of the previous two major tournaments. They are a best price 11/1 with bet365 to win the 2018 World Cup and will fancy their chances of a big run to the last eight of the competition.
