Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Romelu Lukaku will miss Manchester United's FA Cup tie with Wolverhampton Wanderers and the striker is "50/50" to be fit for international duty.

The 25-year-old damaged his foot in a challenge with Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos last week and aggravated it in Sunday's 2-0 loss at Arsenal.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to rule the former Chelsea and Everton ace out of this weekend's quarter-final against Wolves, but Martinez does not expect him to play any part at Molineux.

"The chance he gets fit [for Belgium] is 50/50. He can't play [at Wolves] this weekend," he told reporters. "We have faith that his situation can change rapidly. Monday we decide."

Lukaku, who has scored six goals in his last four matches, is part of Belgium's squad for the upcoming internationals against Russia and Cyprus.
