The Belgium international thinks he is at his best when facing opponents.

Lukaku has scored 255 times in club football and 67 goals for his country.

But the 28-year-old is eager to point out that he is about much more than hitting the back of the net.

He told UEFA’s official website: “The way I’m built – I’m quite big – everybody thinks I’m a sort of target man: just holding up the ball and being a goal poacher. But I’ve never played that way and I hate it.

“My biggest strength is that I’m dangerous when I’m facing towards the goal, because that’s when I rarely make wrong choices.

“After I pass the ball, I know where I have to position myself in the box. I can do a bit of everything and in some games when I know there is a lot of space behind the defence, I play differently.

“The reason I’m so productive [in front of goal] is because I can do a bit of everything.
