Belgium defeated Russia in the high profile Group H encounter and qualified for the Round of 16 where they will face the runners of Group G
Belgium and Russia were involved in a dull encounter at the historic Maracana and faced a lot of boos from the crowd which was expecting the encounter to be tightly fought.
After the first half went goal less, Belgium started the second half very positive, but were frustrated by a resolute Russian defense. It looked like the match was going to end with the score line being 0-0.
However, teenage striker Origi came off the bench to grab an 88th-minute winner – his first international goal – and secure progression from Group H with a game to spare.

Belgium vs Russia Team News
Belgium: Vincent Kompany is struggling with a groin strain and might miss this all important clash. In his absence, Thomas Vermaelen would likely come into the centre of defence alongside Daniel Van Buyten.
Russia: Russia’s goalkeeper had a horrible first game against South Korea and the big question in Fabio Capello’s mind would be whether to persist with him or go for another option.
