Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku returns from an ankle injury to score for Belgium against Cyprus after coming on as a 66th-minute substitute.

Romelu Lukaku emerged unscathed from a goalscoring half-hour cameo in Belgium's World Cup qualifying win over Cyprus on Monday night.

The Manchester United striker came on as a substitute in the 66th minute, with the Red Devils already three goals up at the King Baudouin Stadium.

Lukaku not only played on until the end of the game without further complications, but got onto the scoresheet himself as Belgium ran out 4-0 winners.

The 24-year-old missed his country's trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina earlier in the week as he attended a rehab centre to overcome an ankle injury.

The news will come as a welcome boost for United manager Jose Mourinho, who is already without Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini for Saturday's Premier League trip to Liverpool.
