Belgium are through to the FIFA World Cup round of 16 with a game to spare after teenager Divock Origi struck a dramatic late winner against Russia.

There was little to tell between the Group H rivals, and it was Russia who created the better chances until a late flurry from their opponents that swiftly earned its reward. Belgium, on six points, face South Korea in Sao Paulo on Friday when Russia take on Algeria in Curitiba, needing a win after the African side defeated the Asian contenders 4-2 to move off the mark.

    Belgium break through and yet again it is Eden Hazard setting up a substitute, Belgium breaking up the left and the loss cross turned in by the teenager for his first senior international goal. If it stays this way, Belgium are in the round of 16.
