Batshuayi reacts to painful goal celebration

Batshuayi reacts to painful goal celebration

The ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018 has not only been the source of surprises for football fans but also a great season for meme-makers.

Michy Batshuayi produced one of the best moments of the World Cup last night with his celebration for Adnan Januzaj's sublime victor against England.

Belgium beat the Three Lions 1-0 to top the group and set up a knockout clash with Japan.

The image of the youngster blasting the ball off the post and back onto his face is now likely to haunt him for some time.

Digg is what the internet is talking about, right now.

Batshuayi could see the amusing side of things, tweeting 15 minutes after the final whistle that he knew he would be in for a lot of ribbing on social media.

Fellow countryman Axel Witsel couldn't help but chime in too, posting a photo of the striker hugging the post and commenting "guys it's all good between them", which Batshuayi himself then retweeted.

Sometimes you score, sometimes you kick a ball in your face.

Here it is, in case you haven't seen it. It does not get any better than this.

Why? Because he's viral and he knows it. Twitter told him - repeatedly.

Neither Belgium or England wants to win their Group G game.

"Why am I so stupid bro".

He later said "Fortnite celebrations [are] so overrated", so he wanted to "create something new".

"No hard feelings", the striker tweeted.
