Everton's 'natural finisher' Lukaku nets 100th career goal

Romelu Lukaku achieved a remarkable feat on Thursday night when netting the 100th senior goal of his career.

The 21-year old Belgium international scored a double as Everton defeated Young Boys 3-1 at Goodison Park in the Europa League Round of 32 second leg to move into the next phase courtesy of a 7-2 aggregate.

Lukkau scored a hat-trick in the first leg and his brace tonight took his career tally to 100 goals, 33 of which have come for Everton.

A journalist at the post-game pointed out that the former Anderlecht, Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion forward tallied his milestone, which includes 11 international goals, and Martinez felt there was only more to come from his leading scorer.

"He's a natural finisher and the consistency will come," said the Spaniard.

This season, Lukaku has scored seven Premier League goals, two in the FA Cup and six in the Europa League for a total of 15.
