Romelu Lukaku nets two for Belgium; Italy held


Romelu Lukaku scored twice as top-ranked Belgium came from an early goal down to beat Estonia 5-2 in World Cup qualifying and stay atop Group E.

Estonia midfielder Mattias Kait put the hosts ahead in the second minute on Thursday but Red Devils were quick to turn things around.

Meanwhile, Italy finally came back down to earth a bit in their first game as European champs.

Less than two months after winning the European Championship, Italy were held to a 1-1 draw by Bulgaria.

That ended Italy’s perfect start to the qualifying campaign but nevertheless matched Spain’s record run of 35 matches unbeaten, set between 2007 and 2009.

Spain lost 2-1 away to Sweden to drop to second place in Group B.
