International round-up: Batshuayi bags for Belgium

25 March 2019

Michy Batshuayi has continued a fantastic run with the Belgium international side by scoring the Red Devils' second goal in a 2-0 win over Cyprus.

The Palace forward had previously assisted Chelsea's Eden Hazard in a victory over Russia as well as striking the post and seeing an effort cleared off the line. Yesterday, however, he finally earned his goal by skipping around shot-stopper Urko Pardo to bury the ball well.
