Twitter reacts to Michy ‘Batman’ Batshuayi’s celebration faux pas against England

Michy Batshuayi is known for taking life not too seriously sometimes. The Belgian striker is the top football player to follow on social media if you fancy some giggles every now and then. 

The self-proclaimed ‘Batman’ has caused some uproar in the Bundesliga after Chelsea sent him on loan to Borussia Dortmund. He has scored seven goals since his move and seems to be hungry for more. His goal against Tunisia in the World Cup showed that Michy can perform everywhere. 

Belgium are rated as one of the favourites for this year’s World Cup. With the help of Michy, they also may have given fans one of the best moments of the entire tournament.

The Batman delivered a rather un-heroic celebration while celebrating Adnan Januzaj’s goal against England yesterday. He tried to smash the ball back into the net after Januzaj scored, but instead the ball smashed off the post and right back into his face. As expected, the video of Batshuayi’s antics went viral and is still trending a day later. 

We take a look at the best Twitter reactions and the social media-savvy footballer’s response to his mishap.

 Some think it could definitely rival the flashy throw-in by Iran’s Milad Mohammadi as fail of the World Cup.

One of the best responses so far could even be by Manchester City’s Twitter account. Someone has quickly managed to browse the club’s very own fail archive to find this gem of Mishy’s Belgium teammate Kevin De Bruyne.

 Yet, nothing beats the Batman himself in composing witty responses.
