Romelu Lukaku's hat-trick during Belgium's 5-1 win over Luxembourg last week is to be wiped from official record books after FIFA decreed that it was not an official international.

FIFA said in an emailed statement that it did not recognise the friendly as an ‘A’ game because Belgium made too many substitutions during the course of the match.

The ruling also means that Adnan Januzaj’s senior debut for Belgium is also wiped from the records.

FIFA’s rules limit the number of substitutes allowed in a competitive match to three – and six for friendlies.
