Romelu Lukaku returns to Mourinho’s full disposal ahead of Roma-Empoli

Andy Mattioli

Romelu Lukaku is set to make his return to Italy from international duty today.

After leading Belgium as captain in a emphatic 5-0 win over Estonia – during which he scored two goals and assisted once – Lukaku is ready to do the same with Roma in their upcoming Serie A engagements.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lukaku is ready to make his first start for Roma and is set to be paired up with Paulo Dybala in Sunday’s match with Empoli at Stadio Olimpico.

The striker is unlikely to play all 90 minutes, but – like with Belgium – Lukaku could feature from the start and play for a little over 60 minutes on Sunday night.
