Belgium secured their place in the Round of 16 and top Group G after beating England 1-0 thanks to winger Adnan Januzaj who settled the tie with a wonder-goal.

The moment of the game though came immediately after Januzaj's effort hit the back of the net. As Batshuayi - in attempting to kick the ball back into the net in celebration - hit the upright with the ball cannoning back into his face.

The Borussia Dortmund striker, currently on loan from Chelsea reacted hilariously to the incident and saw the funny side to his gaffe.
