Belgium started off strong when Axel Witsel took a shot and was saved. However, that changed when Jan Vertonghen brought down Sofiane Feghouli in the box, Algeria were given a penalty and Vertonghen a yellow card.

Feghouli put Algeria one goal up when he converted the penalty into the centre of the goal.

Belgium were getting close to receiving a goal, Chadli taking many shots and Belgium receiving many free kicks and pressing unto the Algerian defence.

Belgium finally got back into the game when Belgium received a corner and the substitute Maruane Fellaini assisted by De Bruyne.

Belgium finally got in front when Dries Mertens’ right footed shot hit the top right top corner of the net.
