Romelu Lukaku scored a brace in both of his World Cup games so far and he helped Belgium to pick another huge win in the group stage – and Didier Drogba claimed that he is taking advantage of his advice.
Drogba used to play together with Lukaku back in their times at Chelsea and the Ivory Coast legend learned a couple of things his younger colleague which was visible ahead of his first goal against Tunisia.
The former Chelsea striker spoke about Lukaku’s shot as he said, according to Give Me Sport:
“We’re talking about Lukaku being able to change the angle of his runs and to create his own space and being able to shoot, that’s exactly what he did there, attracting the defender one way and going the other.”
“Then he did something that I really like and I spoke with him a lot about, the short steps before kicking the ball just like a tennis player before they hit the ball, this is giving him more accuracy and it’s easier for him to hit the target like that.”
“He’s also learning from Thierry Henry and I think when you want to be the best, you have to learn from ‘the best’.”
