Algeria: Romelu Lukaku - "I'm Ready for Russia"

Romelu Lukaku has not hinted at great things against a very compact Algerian defense on Tuesday. The Chelsea striker on loan at Everton last season did not convince in the victory of the Red Devils facing the Desert Foxes. As holder striker and given his performance in friendlies, Romelu Lukaku had a lot of expectations on his shoulders. He has not answered the call.

Muzzled in the attacking zone, the Everton player has hardly been successful... In short, he wants to set the record straight. Romalu Lukaku is desperate to achieve an excellent performance against Russia on Sunday.

"The game against Algeria was very frustrating for me, but I have a good feeling because I know I can do much better. Last week, I did could not train well cause because of my injury, Lukaku said. Now everything is in order. I'm well trained and I'm in form. I do not want to make a second game like that against Algeria. I'm ready for Russia".

Excellent this season with Everton, Romelu Lukaku received the chance to emerge as No.1 striker in the absence of Christian Benteke. But the Belgian attacker of Congolese origin, in a very complicated context, it must be confessed, almost, missed all technical actions undertaken.
