Belgian striker boots ball right into his own face in epic celebration fail

England's final World Cup group game against Belgium last night was a pretty uninspiring affair.

The Three Lions went down 1-0 to the Belgians as both teams brought in widespread changes to both sides making it rather disjointed and uneventful.

Both teams had already qualified for the next round meaning that the result was kinda meaningless.

However, there was one small moment for everyone to savour but it came at the expense of Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi.

After his teammate, Adnan Januzaj curled in a splendid strike past Jordan Pickford the Chelsea forward raced over to retrieve the ball from the net and give it another good kick in celebration.

Sadly for him, it went very, very wrong and ricocheted off the post and smashed him in the face.

The Internet, being the merciless place that it is, soon immortalised the moment in videos and gifs meaning that Michy will never be allowed to forget this moment.

There were a lot of jokes.

Even his own teammate Axel Witsel couldn't help but mock him.

Manchester City and Cesc Fabregas couldn't help but laugh either.

Luckily Michy took it in his stride but was also quite down on himself. Bless him.
