BRUSSELS (AP) — Romelu Lukaku scored both goals in Belgium’s 2-1 win over Switzerland on Friday, putting the Red Devils in the lead of its group in the UEFA Nations League.

The Swiss defended strongly throughout the match, but Lukaku converted two chances of three to give top-ranked Belgium the victory.

The result left Belgium with six points from two games in Group 2 of the top-tier League A, three points more than Switzerland. Iceland lost its two matches.

Already Belgium’s all-time goal scorer, Lukaku reached 45 goals in 78 international appearances.
