Belgium's Lukaku scores twice in 3-3 draw with Mexico

Romelu Lukaku struck twice to equal Belgium's all-time goalscoring record in a 3-3 friendly draw with Mexico.

Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi will not be available for this match due to an injury but his absence should not affect the team too much. Lozano ran amok through the last line and nearly upset the World Cup favourite.

However, Andres Guardado equalized in the first half from the penalty spot in Belgium.

A fine touch and low finish by Hirving Lozano restored parity and he then volleyed Mexico ahead before Lukaku converted his 30th Belgium goal.

But the Manchester United striker had the last say, equalising for the hosts to make it 3-3 with 20 minutes of normal time remaining.

At just 24, Lukaku looks set to take the record to new heights and he could set his own standard in Tuesday's friendly with Japan in Brussels.

South Africa had originally won the match 2-1 on November 12 past year, but it was agreed that the game would be replayed after referee Joseph Lamptey's lifetime ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The game is vital for Mexico's preparation heading into the 2018 FIFA World Cup and will be a good test for a very talented Belgium side.

In Friday's other friendlies, Portugal beat Saudi Arabia 3-0 thanks to goals from Manuel Fernandes, Goncalo Guedes and Joao Mario, while Poland drew 0-0 with Uruguay.
