first_imgIn an alternative world, Michy Batshuayi is top scorer of the World Cup with seven goals.— LFC Fans Corner (@LFCFansCorner) June 23, 2018 talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. Michy Batshuayi finally converts. But if he’d put away all of his chances today he would probably be the World Cup’s all time leading goalscorer— Dream Team (@dreamteamfc) June 23, 2018 Michy Batshuayi played about 26 minutes and put up 2.65 xG in that time.That’s a rate of about 9.17 expected goals per 90.— Michael Caley (@MC_of_A) June 23, 2018 Batshuayi should’ve boxed off the golden boot in this 20 minute cameo alone.— Joel Rabinowitz (@joel_archie) June 23, 2018 1 Batshuayi celebrates Belgium’s fifth center_img Few 25-minute cameos would have been so eventful, as Batshuayi had six shots – one every four minutes, including several guilt-edged opportunities.The Chelsea striker, ironically, scored a fantastic sliding half-volley in the 90th minute. It was the hardest chance of the lot and he could’ve had a hat-trick by that point.It led fans to suggest that had Batshuayi been more clinical in front of goal, he might even be leading the race for the World Cup Golden Boot.Here’s what Twitter had to say: Sub-plot of Batshuayi vs the football gods takes over from Belgium vs Tunisia for the last ten minutes.— Robbie Dunne (@robbiejdunne) June 23, 2018 Twitter loves Michy Batshuayi, and rightly so.But social media was less than impressed with his finishing in Belgium’s 5-2 thrashing of Tunisia. Michy Batshuayi could’ve been leading the race for the golden boot in a 25 minute cameo if he wasn’t finishing like Morata. #BELTUN— Footy Humour (@FootyHumour) June 23, 2018 You’ve all misunderstood what’s going on out that. Batshuayi, presented with open goals, is saying ‘Naw fam, I can’t do this to them. 4-1 is enough.’ He is a humanitarian icon and a better man than all of you.— Darryl (@LordMoloch) June 23, 2018last_img read more
