Last night, as Belgium easily defeated Azerbaijan, Romelu Lukaku, a Chelsea loanee, had yet another brilliant evening while playing for his country.
The striker scored four goals, all in the first half, in a 5-0 victory to complete qualification for the forthcoming European Championships.
Many of his admirers, who are aware of the player’s confidence, have been particularly drawn to the way he is celebrating the moment.
The Belgian yelled, “I’m him,” after sprinting towards the camera, according to SportBible. This could have been a message to people who had been questioning him lately.
Many Chelsea fans were hopeful the club would find a way to sell him permanently over the summer, even though he was still technically a Chelsea player.
His unquestionable skill in front of goal is something that Stamford Bridge sorely lacks, but in the upcoming years, they want to avoid the issues he brought off the pitch in such a short amount of time.
“I’m him,” Lukaku shouted
Although it was rumoured that Lukaku and new manager Mauricio Pochettino were open to at least discussing a possible reunion, the opportunity never actually materialised for either player.
Rather, he returned to Serie A, where he now plays for Roma, managed by former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
During his time in Italy, he has made a big impression, already tallying nine goals across all competitions.
