Faouzi Ghoulam took a nice cross into the box but Sofiane Feghouli was dragged down by Jan Vertonghen.

With a penalty shot awarded to Algeria, Feghouli stepped up and scored, making it one to nothing, Algeria.

Belgium is just 1 for 16 in World Cup history when allowing the first goal.

In the 70th minute, Kevin De Bruyne passed to Fellaini and he scored on the header. It was a big play for the substitute. Belgium tied it up 1 to 1.

Ten minutes later, Dries Mertens ripped a shot past the keeper for the goal.

Belgium won 2 to 1.
