Everton striker Romelu Lukaku may have had a largely impressive season at club level, but Euro 2016 has not quite been the tournament he would have hoped for thus far.

True, the 23-year-old netted two neat goals against Republic of Ireland in a game in which the Belgians completely dominated, but he was barely in the match during the opening defeat to Italy and once again struggled to leave a mark against Sweden on Wednesday.

Belgium ultimately won the game 1-0 to qualify in second from the group, but Lukaku's night was one of frustration as he missed several chances and saw his effort chalked off for offside when he eventually did find the net.

The Everton man is certainly something of an enigma; he netted 25 goals in 46 club matches last term, form which has seen his valuation reportedly rocket to over £60 million as a host of top European clubs monitor his progress.

However, he is prone to periods of poor form when his sharpness vanishes and he represents a mere shadow of the man he is during his rich veins of form, illustrated never more so than in the final two months of the season, when he failed to net in any of his final 10 club appearances.

This side of his game was all too apparent against Sweden; he was at the forefront of much of the action as his side's only target man, but was profligate in front of goal and failed to take the game by the scruff of the neck in the manner to which Everton fans have become accustomed.

Reacting on Twitter to his display, both Toffees supporters and neutrals were unimpressed with what they saw from the man who has become billed as one of the top strikers in Europe.
