Belgian ace Romelu Lukaku is a top contender for the tournament’s best player as his stellar performances seem to draw praises from every direction. 

Mentored by France legend Thierry Henry – who is now an assistant coach with the Belgian national team – Lukaku’s skills have finely honed over the years.

Ahead of the Belgium vs France match, the teacher and the student were photographed having it out in a friendly session of fisticuffs.
