Algeria are through to the FIFA World Cup knockout phase for the first time following a 1-1 draw with Russia.

The African outfit headed into their final Group H fixture knowing a point would suffice to take them through along with Belgium. They fell behind to Aleksandr Kokorin's early effort but restored parity courtesy of Sporting Clube de Portugal forward Islam Slimani's 60th-minute goal and will now face three-time global champions Germany in the last 16 on Monday.
