Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi celebrated his new Chelsea deal with a double for Belgium in their 5-1 win over Iceland.

The 26 year old Belgium striker is set to join Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal and he reportedly extended his Chelsea contract on Tuesday.

Batshuayi scored after 17 minutes to give Belgium a 2-1 lead and popped up with a world-class backwards-flick finish in the 69th minute for his second of the game to make it 4-1.

Belgium finished the match with 75 per cent possession and 784 completed passes to Iceland’s 258. The other goalscorers for Belgium were Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel, Napoli forward Dries Mertens and Teenage Anderlecht forward Jeremy Doku.

Belgium’s result saw them go clear at the top of Group 2 in the Nations League, with England only able to draw with Denmark.

England and Belgium meet next month in a highly-anticipated match at Wembley.
