Lukaku did not travel to Sarajevo with Belgium, who have already qualfied for next year’s finals in Russia, after failing to train this week because of an ankle injury.

The Manchester United forward will continue to train on his own in Belgium over the weekend in a bid to be fit for Tuesday’s match with Cyprus in Brussels.
