Initial reports suggested that the Belgian frontman was expected to miss out on his nation's trip to Russia for the World Cup this summer, but the North Rhine-Westphalia-based club announced via their official Twitter page
洛 @mbatshuayi hat sich im Revierderby bei @s04 eine Sprunggelenkverletzung zugezogen und wird wahrscheinlich für den Rest der Saison ausfallen.

"Batshuayi sustained an ankle injury in the derby at Schalke and will probably be out of action for the remainder of the season", the tweet read.
"A commitment for the Belgian national team at the World Cup in Russia is a possibility. Get well soon, Michy!"
