Belgium held its first training open to the public in Qatar this Sunday without top scorer Romelu Lukaku, 29, who will miss the first two games of the group stage of the Cup and would reappear, in the best of cases, in the last duel of the phase, against Croatia .

The Inter Milan striker has already traveled to Qatar injured and his manager, Spaniard Roberto Martínez, admitted when he announced his World Cup squad ten days ago that Lukaku is “not medically fit” to play.

Holder of the ‘Red Devils’, Lukaku should be absent from the first two games, against Canada on Wednesday and against Morocco on Sunday, confirmed to AFP a source close to the Belgian selection, and in the best of cases he would reappear against the Croatians in the December 1st.

The embezzlement must be compensated by his usual reserve, Michy Batshuayi (Fenerbahce), although the Belgian coach can also choose to give a chance to the young Loïs Openda (Lens), author of the goal in the defeat to Egypt, last Friday, in the last prep game.
