The moment we’ve all been waiting for; Romelu Lukaku’s Manchester United debut. Today, the 24-year-old took to the field for the first time as a Red Devil, and as you can see from the photos below, he looks rather good in red wearing the famous #9 jersey.
Alright, he did not hit the back of the net against the MLS Western Conference side, but on the whole, you’d imagine that Jose Mourinho will be pleased.
The Belgium international had a huge chance with the first kick of the game, but unfortunately for him, the opposition keeper made a smart stop to deny him his moment.
We know that he’ll score goals when the time comes as that’s what he’s done throughout his Premier League career. I will say that I was very impressed with how intelligent he is with his run-making. There were plenty of occasions where he chose to move away from the ball to create space for others, and he helped carve out several openings without actually being directly involved.
As he gets used to playing with his new teammates, the performance levels will only get better. Overall, I enjoyed watching him play and big things are definitely expected.
For now though, here are some photos of our new star striker in action.
