Michy Batshuayi has been in great form of late, and that has carried over onto the international stage with Belgium.

The 23-year-old was on the scoresheet against Bosnia Herzegovina on Saturday, who had named Batshuayi's former teammate Asmir Begovic in goal.

The stopper left Stamford Bridge in the summer to join Bournemouth, but if he thought that would enough to spare him from the banter of Batshuayi, he thought wrong.

The former Marseille striker struck in the 59th minute on his first competitive start for the Belgian Red Devils, and after the game he was clearly still on cloud nine, at the expense of poor Begovic.

He wrote on Twitter: "1st competitive start with Belgium *check* Goal + victory *check* And a broken *heart*... sorry my friend @asmir1."

Belgium have won all but one of their World Cup qualifiers so far and look every inch like they could challenge for glory at next summer's finals in Russia.

Bosnia, on the other hand, have it all to do in their final game against Estonia - they sit third in Group H after being leapfrogged by Greece, who now have their own destiny in their hands.

Edin Dzeko and co will be praying to see the Euro 2004 winners slip up against minnows Gibraltar, who have lost every single qualifier so far.
