Romelu Lukaku has raised the bar for athletes on Instagram after a video featuring some of his teammates took the Internet by storm.
The Belgian soccer player posted a video on Instagram in which one of his teammates, Axel Witsel, is watching a movie in bed. Another Belgian soon joins Witsel. Then another one does. Before long, there are seven Belgians on Witsel’s bed.
The video features many faces which are familiar to fans of the beautiful game. Chelsea star Eden Hazard is captivated by the flick, as is Everton’s Marouane Fellaini. Chelsea’s Lukaku enters the frame at the end of the video, asking his teammates if they like the movie.
Lukaku’s video will undoubtedly please Belgium head coach Marc Wilmots. He knows that at least seven of his players aren’t out on the town the night before a big game. Belgium plays France in Brussels on Wednesday.
Watch Belgium’s national team enjoy a movie together in the video below.
