Belgium's Michy Batshuayi hits himself in the face with his own kick vs. England

Belgium topped Group G and will now face Japan in the round of 16, but Michy Batshuayi's comical face shot off the post stole the show.
The FC crew answer your tweets on Michy Batshuayi's celebration being the highlight of Belgium's win and Shaka Hislop's thoughts on England.

Michy Batshuayi likes to call himself Batman ... but he pulled off a very un-superhero move when celebrating Belgium's goal against England.

The Chelsea striker wanted to emphatically thump the ball into the back of the net after Adnan Januzaj had already done so.

Instead he missed, hit the post and the ball then rebounded back into his own face.

But it appears only his pride was injured as he carried on as the goal stood up in Belgium's 1-0 win.

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.

Belgium teammate Axel Witsel later tweeted that there were no hard feelings.

Januzaj, who only learned of his teammate's antics later, said Batshuayi's excitement exemplified the mood in the Belgium camp as they finished top of Group G.

"Obviously he was probably happy and at the end did a little mistake," the goal scorer said. "But that was the joy ... that showed the passion the Belgian team has got here."
