Batshuayi season 'probably over', race on for World Cup

Belgium international Michy Batshuayi was taken off on a stretcher late on in Dortmund's loss

Michy Batshuayi is set to miss the rest of the season and faces a race against time to be fit for the World Cup.

Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi's in danger of missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup after the striker confirmed his season is over with an ankle injury he suffered during Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga clash with FC Schalke 04 on the weekend.

Scans are believed to have revealed ligament damage to his ankle, meaning he faces a race to regain his fitness before the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Batshuayi, 24, rolled his left ankle following a late challenge from Benjamin Stambouli, before being stretchered off as Dortmund finished the game with ten men. He scored seven goals and set up another in 10 league appearances since his winter switch as a replacement for the Arsenal-bound Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

With the World Cup in two months' time, Batshauyi could now miss out on joining up with Roberto Martinez's side.

"I didn't think it looked like the kind of injury that he would be back from quickly", Dortmund manager Peter Stoeger told the club's website www.bvb.de/eng following the injury. "Hopefully it's not as bad as it looks".
