Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the first half of Inter’s Serie A clash with Lazio on Sunday to bring up the 300th goal of his career.
The Belgium striker opened the scoring from the penalty spot at San Siro and added a second late in the opening period – the goal allowed to stand after initially being ruled out for offside.
Lukaku moved onto 56 goals for Inter in all competitions since joining from Manchester United in August 2019, 16 of those coming in the league this season.
That is one fewer than the 27-year-old has scored for his national side at senior level, though he still has some way to go before equalling the 87 netted for Everton between 2013 and 2017.
Lukaku’s other goals were scored for United (42), Anderlecht (41) and West Brom (17). He failed to register for Chelsea, despite spending three years on the London club’s books – two of those out on loan – and making 15 appearances.
