Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has been included in the Belgian national team’s squad for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup.

This is confirmed by an announcement by the Belgian FA of the provisional 26-man squad for the tournament on the FA’s official Twitter account, which contained the 29-year-old Nerazzurri striker.

Lukaku has been recovering from a recurrence of the injury that had kept him out of action for two months of action for the Nerazzurri.

The Belgian has missed out on matches against Bayern Munich, Juventus, and Bologna, and will also be out for the Nerazzurri’s final match before the World Cup break, away to Atalanta over the weekend.

However, the hope is still that Lukaku can be fit enough to play for Belgium during the World Cup, even if reports have suggested that he may only be able to return to the pitch whilst the group stage is already in progress.

Meanwhile, AC Milan midfielder Charles de Ketelaere is included, whilst Rossoneri forward Divock Origi misses out.
