Inter striker Romelu Lukaku can hardly wait any longer if he is to make an impact for the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Qatar.

This is the view in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who argue that the 29-year-old must take his chance to make his mark at international football’s biggest competition against Croatia or else not at all.

Lukaku made a brief appearance for Belgium in their group stage loss to Morocco yesterday, but was unable to turn things around for the Red Devils.

The Nerazzurri striker still looked some way from his best and barely got on the ball, well marshalled by the Moroccan defense.

Lukaku will be keener than ever to appear against Croatia in Belgium’s third and final group stage match, a match which is now virtually must-win for them.

If the 29-year-old can find his best form in that match then he could prove decisive for his country as he often has in the past, but if he is unable to then his team could be in for a shock exit at the group stage.
