Romelu Lukaku’s first Manchester United goal, 2-1 vs Real Salt Lake

by Sam Peoples

Romelu Lukaku scored his first goal for Manchester United with a goal to make it 2-1 against Real Salt Lake on the pre-season tour.

The Belgian striker received a through-ball in behind Real Salt Lake’s defence, took a touch to get away from his defender to open up space and fired into an empty net with what was a composed bit of control and a finish.

That first goal was so important for Lukaku to get early on and hopefully it will give him the confidence he needs at United. The more he scores, the more confident he will be and that’s exactly what United want – a confident Lukaku, when we’ve got that he’ll no doubt be scoring goals galore.
