Football fans will absolutely love to see that Romelu Lukaku consoled Cristiano Ronaldo with a warm embrace after Belgium knocked Portugal out of the Euros.

Roberto Martinez’s men ran out 1-0 winners on Sunday night thanks to a long-range strike from Thorgan Hazard, whilst Portugal failed to convert any of their clear-cut chances.

Once the full-time whistle blew, Lukaku and Ronaldo shared a hug, with the ex-Chelsea striker seeming to express his respect for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner with some words into his ear.

Ronaldo scored five goals and contributed an assist over the four matches he played for his nation, but it wasn’t enough to kick the rest of the side into gear.
