Batshuayi suffers ankle injury, could miss World Cup



Michy Batshuayi is likely to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury, but Borussia Dortmund say the striker could be fit for the World Cup.

Batshuayi had to be carried from the pitch on a stretcher towards the end of Dortmund's Ruhr derby loss to rivals Schalke in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

The striker has hit seven Bundesliga goals since signing on loan from Chelsea in January.


"Batshuayi got an ankle injury in the derby at Schalke and will probably be out of action for the remainder of the season," Dortmund said in a statement.

"Participation with the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Russia remains in the realms of possibility. Get well soon, Michy!"

Belgium get their World Cup campaign under way against Panama on June 18, going on to face Tunisia and England in the group stage in Russia.
