Chelsea striker Lukaku celebrated a century of appearances for his country in Belgium's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Czech Republic on Sunday, and marked the occasion with his 67th goal for his country. 

The 28-year-old made his international debut against Croatia in 2010 when he was just 16 years old, and his 67 strikes have catapulted him to the top of the Red Devils' all-time goalscoring chart. 

Nigeria attacker Musa also won his 100th cap this week, in a World Cup qualifying clash against Cape Verde on Tuesday. The pacey forward has thus become the third Super Eagle to achieve this feat, after retired goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama and ex-defender Joseph Yobo.
