Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi has responded to what many consider to be one of the most embarrassing moments in recent FIFA World Cup history during their 1-0 win over England on Thursday.
Adnan Januzaj's stunning goal was overshadowed by the events that followed as the Red Devils finished as Group G winners over England with a 1-0 win.
Batshuayi claimed to have invented a new goal celebration, moving on from popular dances derived from the Fortnite video game as he looked to scoop the ball and kick the ball into the roof of the net.

"Fortnite celebrations so overrated bro I had to create something new," he tweeted
Januzaj, whose curling shot over Jordan Pickford sparked the celebration, said teammates told him about it later.
"Obviously he was probably happy and at the end did a little mistake," Januzaj said. "But that was the joy … that showed the passion the Belgian team has got here."
