Goalless Romelu Lukaku Congratulated by Queen of Belgium for Scoring Game-Winner

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterJune 23, 2014

Belgian star striker Romelu Lukaku hasn't quite enjoyed the World Cup breakthrough (yet) that many expected him to have for a talent-laden Belgium side. 

Someone forgot to tell that to the Queen of Belgium. 

In the aftermath of Belgium's late 1-0 win over Russia, Queen Mathilde congratulated Lukaku for scoring the game-winner. 

Per Who Ate All the Pies, she told Lukaku, "Bravo! Thanks to your goal we won, right?"

Problem being, of course, is that Lukaku didn't score the winner. He was on the bench when Divock Origi scored.

In fact, Lukaku was rather unhappy about being taken off the pitch.

But he took it all in good stride—three points and the Queen's presence will do that—and pointed her in Origi's direction.
