World Cup concern for crocked Batshuayi

Michy Batshuayi Injury

The striker was stretchered off with an ankle injury during Sunday's 2-0 loss in the Ruhr valley derby to Schalke. There are even suggestions that it could be a broken ankle, which would most definitely rule Michy out for the rest of the season as well as the World Cup this summer.

"Well it is not good news for now, my season is probably over, and I won't be able to pay Borussia Dortmund back for their confidence", the Belgian worldwide tweeted.

For now, Batshuayi will likely be heading back to Chelsea's training facility in Cobham starting the rehabilitation process.

Initial reports suggested that the Belgian frontman was expected to miss out on his nation's trip to Russian Federation for the World Cup this summer, but the North Rhine-Westphalia-based club announced via their official Twitter page that although his domestic campaign is over, the striker's worldwide dream may not be.

Having seen game time limited at Chelsea, a January switch to Dortmund had delivered nine goals in just 15 appearances.

For Belgium, who are in England's World Cup group, Batshuayi appeared in half of his side's qualifiers.
