(Reuters) - Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out of Belgium’s Nations League match against Iceland due to a hamstring injury, the Belgian Football Association (RBFA) said on Thursday.

The 25-year-old came on as a substitute during United’s 3-1 Premier League defeat by Manchester City on Sunday, winning a second-half penalty for his team, but missed the previous two matches against Bournemouth and Juventus with the same injury.

Lukaku has not scored for United in 10 games, but netted twice for Belgium against Switzerland in the Nations League last month.

Roberto Martinez’s Belgium host Iceland at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels on Thursday before travelling to Switzerland on Sunday.
