Belgium’s Divock Origi, centre, celebrates his late winner against Russia in their World Cup Group H game
A late goal from teenage substitute Divock Origi gave Belgium a hard-fought Group H victory over Russia at a sun-kissed Marcana Stadium Sunday.
The 19-year-old striker pounced on Eden Hazard’s cut-back to drive the ball high into the net past Igor Akinfeev, sending Marc Wilmots’ team into the last 16 of the World Cup with a game to spare.
In Sunday’s second Group H fixture, Algeria overcame South Korea 4-2 in Porto Alegre for its first World Cup victory since defeating Chile in Spain 1982.
The results mean Russia, Algeria and South Korea all still have a chance of progressing to the second phase alongside Belgium, with the final round of matches on Thursday.
