Rom's Euro Quest Continues

Romelu Lukaku’s Euro 2016 adventure with Belgium continues on Friday night with quarter-final tie against Wales.

The Belgian striker has started each of the Red Devils’ four matches in the tournament so far - and he will be hoping for another opportunity in Lille.

Lukaku has two goals in the tournament so far - both scored against Republic of Ireland - and still has the chance of winning the Golden Boot prize.

He, along with 10 other players, are one goal behind Gareth Bale, Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata, all of whom have three to their name.

Lukaku is 7/1 with Everton's betting partners Coral to finish as the top scorer at Euro 2016.

Scooping the individual award isn’t Lukaku’s priority - it’s winning the tournament with his country, who stand just three matches away from glory.

“I just want to help my teammates,” Lukaku said ahead of the match. “We are here with a mission.

“We are hopefully on our way to doing something big.”

Belgium made it into the quarter-finals with a 4-0 victory over Hungary on Sunday.
