However, Martinez believes that the Manchester United forward has proved he is more interested in team success than individual glory throughout this summer's World Cup.
"Romelu is here to help the team perform, not for individual awards," Martinez told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
"We don't look at that sort of reward and Romelu is the first to show that with his play. We had a moment against Japan where Romelu has the ball in the box, the last second of the game. Any striker that thinks he has 50% chance of a goal takes that, but he made one of the best assists in the tournament.
"Other awards are more interesting to us. To be able to finish third, the best finish for the Belgian national team, would be an achievement we salute more than individual awards."
Lukaku has scored 23 goals in his 23 international appearances under Martinez, although he has failed to find the back of the net in his last three.
