Batshuayi's celebration at World Cup gets online giggles

June 28, 2018 - 4:53 pm

KALININGRAD, Russia (AP) — Michy Batshuayi's celebration after Belgium's goal at the World Cup has drawn plenty of laughs online.

The Borussia Dortmund striker scooped up the ball after Adnan Januzaj scored Thursday and kicked it hard — probably aiming for the net. Instead, it hit the post and rebounded onto his face.

He did not appear to be injured, though his pride may have been hurt.

The second-half celebration in Belgium's 1-0 win over England has become one of the highlights on the Internet. Video clips of the incident were shared widely.
