Batshuayi’s World Cup dreams may not be dashed by ankle injury
Borussia Dortmund lost a Revierderby and its lethal loan striker on Sunday, but Michy Batshuayi’s initial negative outlook may have hope for the World Cup.
The Bundesliga club says Batshuayi, 24, may still pull on the Belgium strip in Russia this summer. He has six goals in 14 caps for the Red Devils.

On loan from Chelsea, Batshuayi has nine goals in 14 appearances for BVB. He hurt his ankle against Schalke and needed to be stretchered off the pitch.
Batshuayi would theoretically be a candidate for a BVB transfer in the summer, but Chelsea’s presumed managerial change may breathe new life into his time at Stamford Bridge.
Batshuayi’s postmatch vibes were not solid.
Well its not good news for now, my season is probably over, and i wont be able to pay @BVB back for their confidence ... 😔 Thank you all the amazing amount of love I received since yesterday. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days. See you soon ❤️ pic.twitter.com/GORkrFz9kk— Michy Batshuayi (@mbatshuayi) April 16, 2018
