Michy Batshuayi scored and Thibaut Courtois saved a penalty as a lacklustre Belgium opened their World Cup campaign on Wednesday with a scrappy 1-0 win over an energetic Canada side returning to the finals for the first time in 36 years. #FIFAWorldCup
"Just hit it long, Michy will get it!" Batshuayi applies a one-touch finish to a perfect longball for the @HisenseAu Highlight in Belgium's nervy win over an impressive Canadian side. #hisensehighlight #FIFAWorldCup #sbsworldcup
Batshuayi fires under-par Belgium to opening World Cup win over battling Canada
Michy Batshuayi deal collapsed with Nottingham Forest because Chelsea didn’t send paperwork in time, busy on many deals. 🚨🌳 #NFFC Fenerbahçe are now trying to enter the race and sign Batshuayi from Chelsea.
Our team today: Caballero; Rudiger, Christensen, Cahill (c); Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Kante, Alonso; Pedro, Batshuayi, Hazard. Subs: Eduardo, Ampadu, Moses, Fabregas, Barkley, Musonda, Hudson-Odoi. #CHENEW
LATEST: Aubameyang medical pencilled for Wed AM. Earlier today all set for Batshuayi loan to Dortmund, Giroud to Chelsea for £20m. But #CFC via Marina Granovskaia now trying to drive price down so #AFC minded to end talks & send Giroud to #BVB - though unclear if he’d agree to it
