Everton striker Lukaku: This Manchester United icon my inspiration…

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is preparing with Belgium to face Portugal.

If both players are selected for Tuesday’s re-arranged friendly, Lukaku will line up against Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and he revealed that he looks up to the Portuguese star.

“I think he is an inspiration for every player who is working hard,” Lukaku said. “He is the type of player who shows that hard work beats talent.

“He is a talented player but his hard work off and on the pitch shows why he is a top player and he is an example for every young player coming through.”
