Lukaku runs riots on Inter debut

The Belgium international completed his protracted move from Manchester United on Thursday in a reported €80million deal, ending weeks of speculation. He did not feature at all for United during their pre-season campaign and was left out of Inter's squad for Saturday's friendly with Valencia. However, he was part of a much-changed side that took to the field for a low-intensity encounter against Serie D minnows Bergamo on Sunday.

Handed the number nine jersey, previously warn by Mauro Icardi, Lukaku made a good first impression as he netted half of Inter's goals in an 8-0 thrashing. Matias Vecino and Sebastiano Esposito, two other players in need of minutes, scored braces to complete the rout.

Leece at home on the opening day
