Inter striker Romelu Lukaku acted as the peacemaker in a heated dressing room argument between several senior figures within the Belgian national team at the World Cup.

This according to French news outlet L’Equipe, who report that the Nerazzurri striker acted to ease the tensions that arose amongst players including Eden Hazard, Kevein de Bruyne, and Jan Vertonghen.

Belgium’s World Cup campaign took a difficult turn with the Red Devils’ 2-0 loss at the hands of Morocco on Sunday.

Belgium still have a real chance of reaching the knockout rounds of the competition thanks to their opening day win over Canada, but tensions are high after the damaging loss to Morocco.

Several members of Belgium’s “golden generation” are felt to have underperformed at the tournament, including Real Madrid winger Hazard, Manchester City midfielder de Bruyne, and Anderlecht and former Tottenham and Benfica defender Vertonghen.

Inter striker Lukaku was only able to get on the pitch for a brief substitute appearance against Morocco due to injury.

The tensions resulting from Sunday’s loss to Morocco spilled over into a heated dressing room confrontation, with Nerazzurri striker Lukaku acting as the peacemaker, according to L’Equipe.
