Watch: Romelu Lukaku scores superb goal with brilliant turn and finish
Romelu Lukaku scored another impressive goal as Inter Milan thrashed Crotone 6-2 in Serie A on Sunday.
Lukaku* has been in fine goalscoring form this season, having notched 15 goals in 17 appearances to help Inter maintain their position as title challengers.
In their first Serie A match of 2021, Antonio Conte’s team ran riot against rock bottom Crotone with Lautaro Martinez scoring a hat-trick. Yet it was Lukaku who scored the game’s most eye-catching goal.
With Inter leading 3-2 midway through the second half, the Belgium striker latched onto a long ball by Alessandro Bastoni with his back to goal.
With a sharp turn, Lukaku shrugged off the attentions of Crotone defender Sebastiano Luperto and slotted the ball home to all but kill the game.
The result took Inter top of Serie A, narrowly ahead of their fierce rivals AC Milan who had yet to play.
