The OM hitman has been in superb form for Marcelo Bielsa’s outfit so far this season, and was rewarded with his maiden Red Devils call-up earlier this week. Despite interest from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Batshuayi opted to accept the Europeans’ invitation and was included in Marc Wilmots’ squad for the European Championships qualifiers against Cyprus.

Belgium were already four goals to the good by the time the former Standard Liege man made his debut.

Marouane Fellaini opened the scoring on 21 minutes before Christian Benteke doubled the scoreline less than 15 minutes later.

After the break, Fellaini scored his second of the encounter, while Eden Hazard made it 4-0 one minute later.

Having confirmed the victory, the Belgians eased off.

Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco of AS Monaco replaced Fellaini, while Batshuayi came on instead of Benteke.

The forward found the net only three minutes later—not quite replicating Harry Kane’s superb first impression for England—but coming close enough to send the Belgian fans into delirious rapture.

LOSC Lille’s on-loan Liverpool forward Divock Origi was an unusued substitute.
