The man of the evening was Romelu 'Big Rom' Lukaku, who scored a hat-trick and now has no fewer than 71 international goals to his name. Hertha Berlin winger Dodi Lukebakio was not to be outdone: he made two assists on Friday.

Foreign press impressed

Tedesco's baptism as the new national coach has made headlines in the foreign press. L'Équipe called it a "winning duo" and even the "Lukaku Festival", while the Daily Mail described it as a "clinical Lukaku" in a positive sense. "Everyone was looking forward to the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it was Lukaku who stole the show."

In short, the Red Devils are back in business and expectations are high.
