Batshuayi season 'probably over', but striker has World Cup chance

Batshuayi was stretchered off in stoppage time in Gelsenkirchen

Michy Batshuayi was on the receiving end of a tackle that is nearly certain to rule him out of the World Cup in today's Revierderby between Schalke and Borussia Dortmund.

Batshuayi was taken off on a stretcher late in the Ruhr derby, having appeared to roll his ankle, and the striker confirmed Dortmund's fears on Monday.

On its website, Dortmund said: "There remains a chance that he could still feature for the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer", while confirming that their forward was likely to be out for the rest of the season.

Michy Batshuayi is set to miss the rest of the season and faces a race against time to be fit for the World Cup. "Get well soon, Michy!"

'I hope, of course, that I'm mistaken. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days.

The injury has come at a terrible time for Batshuayi, with his spot in Belgium's World Cup squad under threat if he can not recover in time.

Belgium still have Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertenes, two very different but equally excellent strikers to play as the centre forward in Russian Federation this summer, but Batshuayi would have been a shoo-in to be selected by Roberto Martínez before this injury.

Michy Batshuayi has enjoyed some good vital game time during his time on loan at Dortmund, scoring seven Bundesliga goals in the process.
