Lukaku scores a double as Belgium beat Costa Rica in friendly

BRUSSELS, Belgium: Romelu Lukaku scored a brace and a glittering performance from Eden Hazard saw Belgium beat Costa Rica 4-1 in their final World Cup warm up on Monday.

But Hazard, showing great form lately, limped off in the 70th minute.

His team-mates later dispelled any fears of lasting damage to the Chelsea forward.

"I'm not too worried about Eden, he's a tough guy. He gets kicked all the time, bur soon gets over it," said Lukaku.

Coach Roberto Martinez's multi-talented Red Devils were just too much for Costa Rica, who took the lead through Brian Ruiz.

But the side that beat Egypt 3-0 last week, with a world class Hazard pulling the strings was 2-1 up by half time thanks to finishes from Dries Mertens and Lukaku.
