Romelu Lukaku is caught up in COVID-19 vaccine dispute in the Belgian national team, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Corriere della Sera’s print edition said a few players in Roberto Martinez’s squad had refused to take their first dose for fear of unwanted side-effects.

Lukaku was one of the players who did agree to be vaccinated, as were Dries Mertens, Eden Hazard and head coach Martinez.

Among those who refused, some already had antibodies in their system after previously contracting COVID-19 while two players simply didn’t want the dose.

The vast majority of Belgium’s squad is protected from the virus in any case, and Martinez’s players will live in a bubble anyway as the Red Devils prepare for Euro 2020.

Lukaku, who confirmed this week he would stay at Inter despite interest from Chelsea, will come up against his Inter teammate Christian Eriksen in Group B, after Belgium were drawn alongside Denmark, Russia and Finland.
