Substitutes gift Belgium win over Algeria

Sofiane Feghouli gave Algeria scored a penalty in the 25th minute, their first in a World Cup since 1986, at Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte {‘beautiful horizon’ in Portuguese}. But a first victory in 32 years at the tournament eluded them. The class of Belgium shone through with substitutes Marouane Fellaini equalising in the 70th minute and Dries Mertens hitting the winner. Belgium enjoyed the majority of possession but struggled to break down a disciplined two-line Algerian defence which contained Eden Hazard and forward Romelu Lukaku. They made a triumphant return to the WC after last losing to Brazil in the round of 16 at the 2002 finals. Attendance: 56,800
