Belgium take on Russia on Sunday 22nd June, 2014, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

Belgium’s golden generation eventually came good against Algeria, but not before the African side gave Marc Wilmots a bit of a scare, and he’ll want his young side to start this game rather quicker than they did their first match. Changes are possible after the way Fellaini came off the bench to make such and impact, but with injuries in some areas his options are limited up front.

Russia played out quite an uninspiring draw with South Korea in their first round, and need three points ideally but would probably settle for one, which may not be to the benefit of the viewer.
