Chelsea youngster Isaiah Brown has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Everton striker Romelu Lukaku’s performance at the European Championship in France on Saturday evening.

Lukaku scored twice, as Belgium won 3-0 against the Republic of Ireland in the Euro 2016 Group E match at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux in Bordeaux.

The former Chelsea striker scored his first goal of the game just three minutes into the second half. The 23-year-old netted his second and Belgium’s third 20 minutes before full time.
