ROMELU LUKAKU is looking back to his best as he bagged a goal and an outrageous assist for Inter Milan last night.
Having set up Lautaro Martinez for Inter’s first-half opener, Lukaku then finished the game in a flurry as his side beat Slavia Prague 3-1 in Champions League Group F.
Lukaku set up Martinez for his first on 19 minutes before Tomas Soucek’s penalty 20 minutes later saw the teams go in level.
But the former Manchester United man sprang into life with just nine minutes of normal time remaining to regain the lead for his team.
His perfectly timed run caught the Slavia defence out and after rounding the onrushing keeper, he smashed the ball into the empty net.
But the 26-year-old was not done there and just seven minutes later put the ball on a plate for Martinez once again with a delightful assist.
Seemingly trapped on the right-hand corner of the penalty area, the Belgian dug the ball out with the outside of his left foot and it curled beautifully into the path of Martinez who smashed it home with aplomb.
After the game, Lukaku posted a light-hearted picture of him and strike partner Martinez wearing the same jumper.
And the pic accompanied a caption that read: “Not only do we work well together but I didn’t see this coming.”
Inter sit second in Group F – level on points with Borussia Dortmund in third – and will likely need to beat Barcelona in their final Group game to give them a chance of progressing to the knock-out stage.
Lukaku recently revealed he knew it was time to quit United when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started playing him as a winger.
He also claimed the Norwegian tried to convince him to stay at Old Trafford before his San Siro switch.
But his pleas fell on deaf ears and Lukaku eventually moved to Italy for £73million.
