Romelu Lukaku: Zlatan Ibrahimovic will help us chase Manchester City

Romelu Lukaku scored twice on Friday in Belgium's entertaining 3-3 draw with Mexico to become his country's joint all-time record goalscorer.

"Yes, it's a relief but I knew it would come", Lukaku told Sky Sports. I was born to score.

Lukaku, 24, netted two second-half goals as Belgium drew 3-3 against Mexico in a friendly at King Baudouin Stadium following a seven-game drought for his club.

"I am like a leopard in the box".

Manchester City are eight points away from Jose Mourinho's United but with only 11 games played so far this season, there's plenty of time to catch up. The Swede said that United's £75 million addition from Everton this past summer will just make his life easier.

The brace against the Mexicans took Lukaku to 30 goals for Belgium, level with Bernard Voorhoof and Paul van Himst.

The deal will close before the end of the 2017 calendar year and isn't expected to hinder EA's fiscal outcome in 2018 or 2019. While this initially seemed to spell doom for the Titanfall franchise, it seems like it's exactly the opposite.

"But in the last few weeks we didn't play at the same level and that made it more hard for me".

Although he has been less than lethal in front of goal for United in the Premier League, Lukaku had a feeling his dry spell wouldn't last too long. "When you face a team like us it's hard for opponents".

Now, it seems that when last season's star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back, Mourinho will consider his options and it seems that Lukaku should be anxious.

"I think when I signed everybody was asking questions", the Belgian stated on recent criticism of himself. "And I think starting so well surprised a few people." .

It has previously been stated that the 36-year-old could return for the crucial clash against Arsenal at the beginning of December, and Lukaku stated that Ibrahimović's return "motivates" him as it is another "good player to add to the squad".
