Belgium International, Dedryck Boyata, Accidentally Plays In Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi’s Shirt

Chelsea fans who recognise Michy Batshuayi shouldn’t get confused with the picture above because its Belgium defender Dedryck Boyata wearing Michy Batshuayi’s jersey by mistake against Russia.

The centre-back started in the Euro 2020 qualifier wearing the No23 top – worn by Chelsea striker Batshuayi.

Boyata did have the correct shorts on, with the No4 printed on his left knee.

But he left fans baffled as he played in the wrong shirt, with Batshuayi’s name on his back.

The mix-up was noticed by match officials around 10 minutes after the interval, and defender Boyata swapped to the correct shirt bearing his own name.

Chelsea forward Batshuayi, who came on for the closing 13 minutes, joked on Twitter: “He realised his dream”

Boyata also saw the funny side, and the Hertha Berlin defender posted a picture of himself in the wrong top on Instagram, along with three laughter emojis.
