Algeria take on Russia on Thursday 26th June, 2014, with kickoff at 21:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV4.

If South Korean hopes are dashed against Belgium this match between Fabio Capello’s Russia and the Algerian side will end up being a straight shoot-out for second spot in the group, with Algeria having the advantage of qualifying if it ends level, although the dangers of playing for a point are well-known, and it would bring trouble if the Koreans win heavily in their game.

As it is, that isn’t going to happen, and this is a match that is essentially knockout football, so tune in if you get the chance and enjoy all the desperation high-level sport has to offer.
