80' Belgium have scored in the other game in this group. As Kannunikov comes on for Kezhajov.
79' Koslov is blown for a foul through after not taking it from the right position. Russia can't afford sily mistakes now.

77' Ghilas comes on for Dejabou as Capello begins to look worries.
74' Slimani goes down and he's stretchered off the field. Doesnt look like he's going to stay on the sidelines for long though.
72' Algeria breaks after an interception in the centre of the park. Feghouli runs, before being met by three Russian defenders, he stepts over the ball a few times before delivering a tame shot into the awaiting hands of Akinfeev.
69' CHANCE Kezakov fires low from just inside the box, after a good move by the Russians, but Rais does well to not only save the shot, but hold on to it.
67' Capello makes a change taking Shatov off and bringing on the talented Dzagoev as Russia look for a goal that could take them to the last 16
63' Dejabou takes a shot from range but its straight to Akinfeev. As things stand Algeria will progress together with Belgium.

57' Kobarov earns a yellow for a bit of shirt tugging. The free kick comes to nothing due to pushing inside the box, which earns Russia a free kick.
52' Algeria have to be careful not to conceed annother goal Keshakov makes a dangerous run down the wing, but his cross comes off an Algerian.
50' Russia looking dangerous on the break a Keshakov makes a good run cutting inside and shooting only for the ball to be deflected out for a corner. Russia take it short, but are unable to make anything from the set piece.

46' Russia make a like for like substitution as Denisov comes on for Glushakov.
Half time. At this stage Russia look the more likely team to go through as they go into the break with a one goal lead. Belgium have had a man sent off in their game against Korea Republic, but that game remains nil-nil.
45' Dangerous throughball by Russia means that Algerian defence have to make a sliding challenege to intercept the ball, which Kezhakov almost got to.

39' Silly Challenge by Mesbah earns Algeria a yellow card and a Russian free kick neer the corner flag. Nothing comes from the free kick as Algeria are able to clear their area.
37’ Free kick in a dangerous position after Kokorin is bundled over. It’s a little far out to go straight for goal and the ball is played in, but there’s too much power on it and it goes out for a goal kick.
34’ This time Brahimi takes a shot from outside the box, after a good run, but its easily saved.
33’ Brahimi gets the ball outside the box, but in front of the goal unmarked, he could’ve taken a shot but instead tries to play a pass into the box, as Algeria search for their first goal.
30' Algeria looking dangerous in the last five minutes, but not able to deliver a final ball into the box as annother promising fast paced attack breaks down thanks to a Russian intercept.
28' Slimani heads from the corner forcing Akinfeev into a good save. An Algerian player was in an offside posistion and interfering with play, so it wasnt really a chance.
28' A promising move by Algeria breaks down as they're not able to find the final ball. They manage to earn a corner
25' Shatov has a go from distance, the chance is not far off and had it gone in it would have been one of the best goals we've seen so far.
