Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Belgium beat Denmark 4-2 to advance to Nations League Final.

The world’s top-ranked team only needed a draw to qualify from the top tier’s Group 2. Belgium finished the group phase with a five-point lead over Denmark and England, joining France, Italy and Spain in next year’s Final Four.

Lukaku reached 57 goals for his country with two clinical finishes, while Youri Tielemans delivered yet another excellent performance rewarded by a goal.

The Leicester midfielder also created his team’s second goal when Denmark threatened to pull ahead following Jonas Wind’s equaliser.

Lukaku’s two goals came in the second half before a blunder by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois three minutes from time gifted Denmark a second goal and maintained a bit of suspense until the end.

Kevin De Bruyne completed the scoring on the counter in the 88th.
