Everton ace Lukaku proud of cousin Bolingoli after English Champions League debut

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has praised his cousin Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo for making his first Champions League appearance in England for Club Brugge.

The young Belgian stepped out in Europe's premier club competition against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday for the first time in the UK.

Lukaku took to Twitter to give a shoutout to his cousin who played the full 90 minutes in Brugge's 3-1 loss to the Red Devils.

20-year-old left-back Bolingoli-Mbomo has been with Brugge since 2010 when he arrived at the Belgian club's youth academy as a teenager.
