There are still doubts as to whether or not Inter striker Romelu Lukaku will be fit enough to play for the Belgian national team at the upcoming World Cup.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the final decision is yet to be made as to whether the Nerazzurri striker will be fit to be included in the Red Devils’ squad for the tournament.

Lukaku is expected to make Belgium’s provisional squad for the World Cup.

If fit, the 29-year-old’s place in the 26-player squad for the tournament is completely without question.

However, Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has stated that Lukaku will only be on the plane to Qatar if the sense is that his recovery timeline will allow him to at least be fit for the team’s final group stage match against Croatia.

As of yet, the medical tests on the matter have been inconclusive.

The decision as to whether Lukaku will be fit for the World Cup will likely be left as late as it can be, whilst the likes of Hertha Berlin’s Dodi Lukebakio and Nantes’s Lois Openda would be the names on standby to take his place if the Inter striker cannot make the squad due to injury.
