Belgium’s Michy Batshuayi left to rue painful goal celebration

Belgium have topped Group G at the World Cup after a 1-0 win over England – but forward Michy Batshuayi was left feeling a little sheepish.

Adnan Januzaj scored the only goal of the Kaliningrad contest in the 51st minute but, despite his delightful finish, it was Batshuayi’s brilliantly choreographed celebration which dominated the post-match agenda.

The Chelsea striker scooped up the ball after Januzaj’s goal and gave it a jubilant boot, possibly aiming for the back of the net.

Batshuayi briefly held his head in pain but luckily the only real damage done was to his pride and the forward went on to complete the full 90 minutes.

Social media was alive to the incident of course, though – and Batshuayi himself was quick to join in the fun.

Amidst the revelry, fans are left to speculate what the maestro might pull out of his hat celebration-wise over the rest of the tournament.
