Romelu Lukaku has four goals for Belgium at the World Cup

The two countries meet in the quarter-finals today (7pm) with a spot in the last four up for grabs.

Lukaku has bagged four goals in the tournament so far, trailing Golden Boot leader Harry Kane by two.

Belgium were the leading goalscorers in the group stages, netting nine goals before coming from 2-0 down to beat Japan in the last-16.

Brazil have conceded just once in the tournament but Lukaku believes defence is the most vulnerable aspect of Tite’s side.

“Weakness in Brazil? Not really,” Manchester United ace Lukaku said.

“I think offensively they’re very strong. They’ve players who can make the difference, they have good box-to-box players who are dangerous.

“Defensively, I think they can be taken, but you can’t attack in the same manner all the time.

“Three out of four are really experienced so you have to know exactly how to attack. We trained that and we are well prepared.”

Lukaku prepared for today’s clash by receiving a surprise video call from NFL superstar and friend Leonard Fournette ahead of the crunch clash on Friday.

When the call finally connected, a shy Lukaku didn’t want to look at the camera but after some gentle persuasion from Fournette, the Belgian finally appeared.

“The camera loves you, the camera wants to see you,” Fournette said.

“Oh s***,” Lukaku responded laughing.

He’ll be hoping he has the last laugh today.
