Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to be risked against Bosnia on Saturday but Roberto Martinez remains hopeful that the striker can still play a part in Belgium’s final Group H match in Cyprus.
Lukaku passed a late fitness test before managing to play 90 minutes for United against Crystal Palace last weekend. However, in doing so, he aggravated an ankle injury and was immediately sent for a scan on his arrival at the Belgium camp. Despite the results showing no serious issues – fracture or ligament damage – Lukaku has been forced to train away from the squad on an individual plan. "He has not joined the group yet since he arrived," revealed Martinez. "We need to be a little bit patient. I would say he is very uncertain for Saturday. We will make a decision probably on Friday, but I would say that it is a little bit difficult for him to be involved." With Belgium already assured of a place at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, there is no need to risk the striker unnecessarily. Oct 6 - 8:21 AM
