Batshuayi Reacts To Booting The Ball In His Own Face With Tweet

Moments later Pickford let a Michy Batshuayi effort squeeze past him and was rescued by Gary Cahill's goal-line clearance.

A superb second-half strike from Adnan Januzaj gave Belgium a 1-0 win over England on Thursday to see them top World Cup Group G with a ideal record and consign England to second place, with both sides already assured of going through to the last 16.

In a largely uneventful clash featuring two understrength sides in Kaliningrad, Adnan Januzaj scored the only goal of the game with a terrific finish early in the second half.

Belgium and England were playing in a "who can't win the best" match in Group G.

Maybe there should be a similar superstition instated about celebrating a goal you didn't score yourself.

Januzaj suddenly sparked the game into life moments later when he twisted and turned inside the England box before curling a wonderful strike into the top corner.

England rued a wasted opportunity by Marcus Rashford after 66 minutes, when he fired wide after finding himself one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois in the Belgian goal.

Fortunately, the player has no major injuries.

And Welbeck almost earned a point eight minutes from time when his goalbound effort was deflected just wide by Fellaini.
