Romelu Lukaku pranks new Everton teammate Yannick Bolasie

It would seem that Romelu Lukaku has struck up a bond with Yannick Bolasie ever since the latter arrived at Everton over the summer.

While we're only a few weeks into the new season, the pair -- both of Congolese descent -- have already been giving each other a bit of friendly banter on social media.

Indeed, it all came to the fore on Saturday when the Toffees teammates continued their back and forth over just who got the final touch on the hotly disputed third goal against Middlesbrough.

In order to exact his revenge for the wry tweets, Lukaku decided to prank Bolasie on the drive home from training after the winger fell asleep in the passenger seat of his car.

The Belgian international striker duly gave his new pal the fright of his life with a rude awakening, repeatedly shouting "Keba" (the Lingala word for "look out") at the top of his lungs.

Howling laughter, good-natured ribbing and practical jokes?

Looks like a proper partnership is forming here between Lukaku and Bolasie, which can only come as extremely good news for Everton supporters.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
