FIFA doesn't recognise Romelu Lukaku all-time goals record for Belgium

FIFA doesn't recognise Romelu Lukaku all-time goals record for Belgium
From ESPN - November 15, 2017

Romelu Lukaku will have to wait to become his country's all-time top goal scorer -- despite Belgium already proclaiming him to be the record holder.

Lukaku scored twice in a 3-3 draw with Mexico on Friday, before netting the only goal in Tuesday night's victory at home to Japan.

The Belgian FA tweeted that the Manchester United striker had moved onto 31 goals for his country, taking him one clear of Bernard Voorhoof and Paul van Himst, who finished their international careers with 30 goals.
