The Belgian's slaloming run from the touchline, through two defenders and wrong-footing of Gary Cahill before slotting past Thibault Courtois broke open a tight encounter at Goodison Park and established the platform for him to score a second a few minutes later to settle the tie.
His goals booked the Blues a place at Wembley for the semi-final against Manchester United but they would prove to be the last he would score in an ultimately disappointing campaign.

A lucky deflection, run of the ball, etc.

As Frank Carson used to say "it was a bloody cracker".

The guy's is a young talent that we should be building around, to improve him and the club.

He had a brilliant spell with us this season but has dropped off dramatically, unplayable when on form and played to his strengths, but when not he's a passenger at best. In his defence his form seemed to go out of the window when he realised he'd have to score 4 for us to win a game.
For it to work you need to build your whole approach around him and personally I don't think he's good enough, often enough to warrant doing that. Maybe I'm wrong.

I hope they don't prove to be his last for the club. He is a proven Premier League goalscorer and with the right coaching and personnel, he could fire us to the top. It all depends on the appointment of our next manager...

Drives me nuts when they do this. While I doubt there will be such a good goal scored at Wembley this evening, it's the principle, FFS!

Mind you, somebody would have had to.
Lukaku will probably be gone by the time we go again and judging by some of the comments he will not be missed by too many, but we will talk about that goal for years.
One of the best I've seen from an Everton player

Darren, I think you hit on it on another thread, but if Lukaku, came out and said he wanted to stay at Everton, and win things, then most fans would be delighted to keep him. Especially considering the general feeling is, that the manager never got the best out of him, or the squad.
Back to that goal, and it really does show what Lukaku, is really capable of, when he's in the mood. I heard Stones, said to one of the lads that he was going nowhere. He's either telling fibs, or Mouriniho is coming to Everton!
