Ian Wright praises Romelu Lukaku for use of "bunda" during incredible punditry

Ian Wright left fans in stitches on Sunday night by praising Romelu Lukaku for his "bunda" before Belgium's win over Portugal at Euro 2020.

Roberto Martinez's men came out on top in their clash with the European champions, with Thorgan Hazard bagging what proved the winner three minutes before half-time.

It was a superb performance from the Red Devils, who will now take on Italy in the quarter-finals next week.

And before the win Wright was full of praise for Lukaku, waxing lyrical about the striker using his "bunda" when shielding the ball from a defender in their previous victory over Finland.

The Arsenal legend said on ITV Sport: "Because the defender… there's nothing he can do to stop this. He gets his bunda into him, can't stop him."

Fans absolutely loved Wright's punditry, with one posting on Twitter: "No way I've seen Ian Wright say bunda on national TV".

Another put: "Man said bunda on national TV, Ian Wright is an icon."

Belgium will now be full of confidence ahead of their crucial quarter-final meeting with Italy.

After beating Portugal on Sunday night, Martinez said: “It wasn’t just about how good we could be, it was about how we could adapt to what Portugal do the best, which is do exactly what they need to do to win.

“That is why they are the current champions and winners of Nations League. They have incredible experience and know how to take those moments to hurt you.

“We had incredible concentration and defended really well. We scored a very good goal.

“In the second half the more the momentum went to Portugal we had to show an incredible mentality. Everything was about being disciplined and tactically astute.
