All strikers have had a day like this.
Michy Batshuayi might have rounded off the scoring for Belgium in their 5-2 win against Tunisia, but he had enough chances to become the tournament’s top-scorer.
The Chelsea striker, who spent part of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund, replaced Romelu Lukaku in the 68th minute but failed to impress in his cameo appearance.
Despite coming on late, Batshuayi had six shots in the match, more than any other player.
He spurned his first glorious chance when he rounded Farouk Ben Mustapha in the Tunisian goal put didn’t put enough power on his shot.
That would be a sign of things to come…
Batshuayi then put forward his contender for miss of the tournament, after he somehow managed to hit the bar from just yards out.
Nobody knows how he missed…
Batshuayi continued his torrid cameo appearance with another glaring miss.
The striker did well to find space in the box, however his shot was fired straight at the goalkeeper who parried clear.
Batshuayi did eventually penetrate the force-field of the Tunisian net late in the game.
Persistence finally paid off as he netted Belgium’s fifth and finished arguably the toughest of all the chances he had.
In typical Batshuayi fashion, he tweeted after the match…
With Batshuayi replacing Lukaku after the latter appeared to be carrying a knock when he came off, we could well see the Batman starting against England.
Surely Gareth Southgate will be thrilled if Lukaku misses out and Batshuayi starts.
