The King and Queen of Belgium attended their country's match against Russia at the Maracana on Sunday and they witnessed Divock Origi become the first teenager to score in a World Cup game since Lionel Messi in 2006. Origi's 88th-minute goal was the only one of the match and put Belgium in the knockout stage with two wins in as many matches.
Later, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde met the players and the queen took this opportunity to congratulate Origi on his goal. Except she said this to starter Romelu Lukaku, who was visibly annoyed by being replaced by Origi in the 57th minute. Lukaku seemed to handle the situation better than he did the substitution though, pointing out Origi to the confused queen.
For Queen Mathilde's sake, let's do some introductions. This is Romelu Lukaku, he's 21 years old and scored 15 goals in the Premier League for Everton (on loan from Chelsea) last season...
And this is Divock Origi, he is 19 years old and plays for Lille in France...
