Chelsea Star Pulls Out Of International Duty Over Injury Fears.

Saturday 9th October 2021.

Chelsea have faced a major blow after receiving the news about their last summer super signing at the international duty.

Romelu Lukaku left the Belgium camp after injury issues. He will not be available for selection in their match against Italy to book position three of the world cup qualifiers.

According to Belgium coach Lukaku suffered muscle swings and cannot play in their next match. A similar problem was experienced with former Chelsea star Eden Hazard who also left the camp.

Lukaku will now travel back to West London and will undergo medical check ups to check on the seriousness of the injury.

He has been a key player for Chelsea since joining them last summer and getting injury will be a blow to the European champions.

However it is not a serious injury which can keep him away for weeks. This might have been brought by his consecutive involvement in every Chelsea game and therefore need some rest.

Belgium lost their match to France earlier and will now face Italy who also lost to France to fight for the third position. France will face Spain in the finals for the competition.
