Video: Romelu Lukaku Gets Pranked During FIFA Game With Belgium Squad

Everton striker Romelu Lukau fell victim of a cruel prank this week with the Belgium squad.

The Toffees forward isn’t the most popular man on the blue side of Merseyside right now after his latest plea to leave the club prompted a furious backlash from fans on Twitter.

It comes after the forward enjoyed one of his best seasons at Goodison Park, scoring 25 goals and popping up with six assists for his team-mates.

But the 23-year-old former Chelsea star has put his club woes to one side as he prepares for Euro 2016 with the Belgian national side.

During their preparations some of the squad, including Lukaku, Thibaut Courtois and Thomas Vermaelen took some time out for a recreational game of FIFA on the Playstation4.

But all was not as it seemed for the unsuspecting Lukaku.

He was paired against Belgium ladies star Cécile De Gernier

However, the striker was unaware that the media team had roped in a Belgian FIFA champion to play against him from behind a curtain, while De Garnier pretended to be in control.

Lukaku looked utterly astonished after going 3-1 down in the match.

You can check out his hilarious reaction in the video below.
