Christian Benteke or Romelu Lukaku, who would you start in a Belgium 11?

I believe (from the Belgium vs Wales game) that they start 1 man upfront, it's unsurprising really considering the amount of attacking players they have.


For a World Cup game?

Lukaku. He's shown this season he's the better player. Benteke playing better now but only enough to be 2nd choice

I'll go for benteke but to be true, lukaku may get the priority

@Posford they're too similar in my opinion.

@TheWelshDragon that's what I'm saying, he's not at the same level as last season but I would still pick him over Lukaku. It's a shame that the way Belgium play that they can't accommodate the two. I say they're real dark horses for it, Quarters at least for them, maybe a semi-final

Lukaku for me. He has had a better season imo but Benteke is equally as good.

@Posford Yeah I agree with @Villa-Rich as well, Benteke has scored in the past few games.

Still wouldn't know who to start though.

@Posford Injuries hampered him. He's getting back to his best again now he's injury free.

That is flipping conundrum right there. Both are very similar and excellent players. As it stands Benteke is the man in posession of the shirt so I'd go with him for continuity but if Lukaku keeps playing as well as he has been then he may have a chance. Benteke hasn't quite been as good as last season this time around

I'd rather Lukaku, but Bentekes more than efficient back up.

On current form Lukaku but Benteke has been playing with injuries and now it seems he's clear of them you can see he's nearly back to his best. Be interesting to see if he goes on a rampage now 2 goals in the last 2 games now.
