Watch out, Pelé and Lewandowski: Romelu Lukaku could soon enter the top 10 international scorers of all time

Romelu Lukaku has scored no fewer than six times in his last six international matches. He has been the Belgian top scorer of all time for forever and with a large lead. Big Rom has 77 goals, Eden Hazard scored 33 goals, while Bernard Voorhoof and Paul Van Himst scored 30 international goals in times gone by.

Lukaku mainly wants to excel on the international stage and get into the mythical top ten there. After his two goals against Estonia in September, he matched Brazilian Pelé. The next target is the Iraqi Hussein Saeed (78) and Neymar (79). The ranking of top scorers of all time includes a number of unknown Asians who contested many matches against relatively easy opponents. Fortunately, it also includes world-class players. Lukaku still has a lot of work to do to overtake leader Cristiano Ronaldo (123) or even catch Lionel Messi (109).
