Romelu lukaku scores on home debut to silence doubters

Odiase Osayande



Romelu Lukaku got his Inter Milan career off to a flyer by scoring on his competitive debut.

The Belgian forward moved to the San Siro in a £73 million switch from Man Utd earlier this month.

And he was included in his new sides starting line up for their opening Serie A clash, as Inter made light work of Lecce.

Lukaku has linked up with ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte at the Nerrazurri, and the Italian saw his team make an immediate statement with a 4-0 victory.

A superb curling effort from Marcelo Brozovic and Stefano Sensi’s strike gave the hosts a two-goal advantage, before Lukaku got on the scoresheet.

The win saw Inter shoot straight to the top of the Serie A table after the first round of fixtures, with an away trip to Cagliari next up on September 1.

Lukaku’s goal saw him carry on an impressive record of scoring on his debut for each of his last four clubs – West
Brom, Everton , Man Utd and Inter.
