Belgian star Michy Batshuayi's celebration 'highlight of the World Cup'

Grant SmithJun 29, 2018

That was Batshuayi celebrating Belgium opening the scoring against England in the two European hopefuls' final World Cup group stage match.

The Borussia Dortmund striker scooped up the ball after Adnan Januzaj scored this morning in a 1-0 victory over England and kicked it hard - probably aiming for the net.

But Januzaj's goal was quickly overlooked on social media after Batshuayi picked the ball up to boot it into the crowd, only for it to rebound of the post and go straight into his face.

"Ahahha I knew I would be f*cked the minute I come to my mentions", he tweeted.

He was able to laugh about it after the game, as his Twitter account featured the video and another message saying "Why am I so stupid bro" - along with a string of emojis and expletives.

Yet six minutes into the second half when the 23-year-old Januzaj shimmied on the edge of the box and sent a flawless shot into the far corner of the net past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford there was delight in the Belgian camp.

"Fortnite celebrations so overrated bro I had to create something new", he wrote on Twitter with the hashtag "Karma Is A B".
