Belgium star ruled out of Nations League fixture against Iceland

Belgium and Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out of Belgium's Nations League fixture against Iceland with a hamstring injury.

Lingering hamstring issue

The 25-year-old featured in the Manchester derby last weekend and helped win a penalty for his side in the second half. However, he has had hamstring issues of late, missing trips to Bournemouth and Juventus for the same issue.

Belgium welcome Iceland at the King Baudouin Stadium tonight before going to Switzerland for Sunday's fixture in their second League A Group 2 match of the week.
