Romelu Lukaku is a part of a young and exciting Belgium team who have flown through the FIFA World Rankings due to the many talented players in the team. After signing with Chelsea in 2011, he has enjoyed very successful loan spells at West Bromwich Albion and Everton in the Premier League and is showing a lot of promise to become a world class striker. However, he is still very young and doesn’t possess much international experience. Lukaku’s best odds to win the golden ball come at 33/1 from Winner and BetFred, but also come as low as 22/1 from SkyBet. Whilst he is showing very high levels of potential for his career, his inexperience at international level and even European level could hold him back. However, the World Cup in Brazil provides him with the opportunity to impress, and could open the door towards a very successful international career. This is certain to make him a popular bet in the World Cup Golden Boot market. If you are betting on the World Cup Golden Boot we suggest you take advantage of the Ladbrokes offer where they will refund your bet if any of Suarez, Ronaldo, Messi or Neymar win the Golden Boot.

Bet on Lukaku to be top scorer at World Cup 2014
Lukaku is high up on the list to be Belgium’s top scorer in the tournament, his odds at 11/4 from BetVictor. Lukaku’s record for Belgium isn’t particularly impressive, but it is only in recent times that Belgium have risen who actually failed to qualify for their previous two World Cups. The star players in the squad could very well mean Lukaku will get more service than he is used to at club level, however whilst playing well in the Premier League his European and international experience is very low. Still, he has every opportunity to score the majority of Belgium’s goals and could be worth a bet. Always be weary of Hazard mind, who has been in exceptional form for Chelsea and has much more European experience than the striker. Click here to view the latest World Cup odds.
