Youngster lists World Cup victory among his targets.
Chelsea youngster Romelu Lukaku says he will be aiming for victory with Belgium at next summer’s World Cup in Brazil, according to the Metro.
The ambitious 20-year-old, who has just been sent out on loan to Everton by Chelsea, says he hopes his loan spell will go some way to making him a star for his club in the future, and added that winning the World Cup is another one of his main goals.
After another spell on loan last season with West Brom, Lukaku caught the eye with 17 Premier League goals, showing himself to be another member of this exciting generation of Belgian footballers, and with the help of the likes of Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini and Christian Benteke, he seems to believe his national side are capable of bringing home the biggest prize in world football.
Speaking on his loan move to Everton, Lukaku said: “I could stay at Chelsea but it’s important at my age to play a lot.
“My goal is to hold the World Cup and be a good striker for Chelsea in the future. This is a fresh start and a new challenge for me.”
Despite the team’s vastly talented squad, a win at a major tournament would go down as a big shock for a side that has, historically, not established itself as one of the giants of international football.
Belgium will be hoping to continue their quest for qualifying for the competition with a victory in their upcoming match against Scotland.
