Lukaku in Belgium squad despite Inter Covid-19 issues

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez included Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku in the squad for World Cup qualifiers later this month on Friday despite a coronavirus outbreak at the striker’s club.

Inter’s game with Sassuolo on Saturday has been postponed after four players tested positive for Covid-19.

Belgium host Wales on March 24 and head to the Czech Republic three days later before entertaining Belarus on March 30.

“I think it’s a bit too soon to give a clear response,” he said about Lukaku’s participation in the fixtures.

Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard will miss the matches with a foot injury and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel is sidelined with an Achilles issue.

Two uncapped midfielders in Anderlecht’s Albert Sambi Lokonga and Stuttgart’s Orel Mangana have received their first call-ups.
