Romelu Lukaku will go into this summer’s World Cup hoping that he can demonstrate why he is worth 75 million pounds. The Belgium striker has had a good first season with Manchester United, without ever really setting the world alight with his performances. This could be the tournament where the 25-year-old really showcases why he is one of the best strikers in the world, and there is no better stage than the World Cup to prove it.
Belgium have a fantastic team on paper and are generally seen as the sixth favourites to win the World Cup. If they are to have a good tournament, Lukaku will need to be in top form. Considering Belgium have players like Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne pulling the strings in midfield, Lukaku should enjoy plenty of chances.
There will be many sports betters curious about the Lukaku World Cup odds and bets. Well, there are a number of betting markets where you can put money on Lukaku, and the odds are quite enticing too.

Romelu Lukaku is without question a top-quality centre forward who is still relatively young and improving. He is a handful for any defence and we expect him to score goals in Russia. It is certainly not unthinkable for Lukaku to win the Golden Boot and putting some money on this could result in some very healthy winnings!
Belgium find themselves in a fairly comfortable group and we expect them to get through to the quarter-finals at least, providing more opportunities for Lukaku to shine at the World Cup. Soon we will find out whether he can do just that. Belgium kick-off on the 18th June against Panama, before playing Tunisia on the 23rd June and England on the 28th June.
