Romelu Lukaku, currently on loan from Chelsea FC at Serie A club Roma, is one of the world’s top strikers. By that, we mean he’s a goal-scoring machine. While playing in the top-flight English Premier League, Romelu netted a total of 121 goals, averaging roughly a goal every two games. According to Sky Sports, he is the fourth player to have scored 80 or more Premier League goals before turning 24 years old. He’s just as impressive on the international stage too. According to The Sun, Romelu scored his 77th international goal for his Belgium side in a September 2023 game against Estonia. At 77 international goals, he’s level with Brazilian legend Pelé’s goal-scoring record and short only to the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Big Rom can thank his family lineage and his genes for (at least some of) his talent on the pitch. His dad, Roger Menama Lukaku, was a former Congolese striker who played professionally, and his younger brother, Jordan Lukaku, currently plays for Turkish club Adanaspor. Their cousin, Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo, is a left-back for KV Mechelen.

Standing 6’3″, Romelu is known for his physicality in the game. According to SportBible, he was big as a young teenager, and his mom would bring his birth certificate to games in order to placate other parents who thought he was older. “It was always a fuss that he scored three or four goals,” soccer scout Mino Raiola told Swedish paper Expressen.
