It’s been a productive international break for Manchester United strikers. Romelu Lukaku kept up his record-setting scoring form for Belgium, getting a double against Iceland on Tuesday. The brace in the Nations League match followed another effort for the number 9 in a friendly last week against Scotland. It wasn’t the prettiest effort, but it’s a good sign that Lukaku is now firmly in goal-scoring form.

Marcus Rashford, who is about to serve a three match suspension in domestic competition for United, notched his second goal in as many games for England. In an otherwise forgettable affair against Switzerland, the young striker scored the late winner with a neat volley.

In other notable international news, Andreas Pereira came off the bench against El Salvador to make his debut for the Brazilian senior team, joining club teammate Fred in the midfield.
