By Chimezie Nebolisa

Belgium will be without Inter Milan’s striker Romelu Lukaku for their opening two games at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Lukaku is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and is still not fully yet.

The 29-year-old Belgian forward got injured after the third game of the season with the issue, which forced him to miss 11 Serie A games for Inter.

Reports suggest that Lukaku is expected to miss Belgium’s first two World Cup games, against Canada on November 23 and Morocco on November 27, due to his hamstring injury.

The forward has still not returned to squad training yet and is continuing to work alone in the gym.
