Match 15 - Belgium V Algeria - 17:00 BST - Group H - ITV

Recommended Posts

Soudani is having a hard time against those gigantic CBs.

Ghilas should be subbed in, take that Mahrez guy out and put Soudani on the left.

Hazard and Witsel the only Belgians to turn up so far, hopefully Algeria can hold on to this.

Terrible first half from Belgium. Vertonghen and Aldeweireld being useless on attack means KdB and Hazard are double/triple marked everytime

Very disappointing first half by Belgium

Looks rather easy for Algeria to keep them away from big chances

Very underwhelming so far. If this is the best Belgium can do, their dark horse status is sinking fast.

They look like a really poor England right now.

Get that Chadli guy off. Friggin Bentaleb looks better on him on the pitch, no wonder Sherwood loves him better.

Friendlies are just that, friendlies. Also we did look impressive against Sweden. Only the match against Tunesia was disappointing, which was to be expected with no-one wanting.

Don't say I didn't told you say. No tempo whatsoever, static play with little depth and not a surprise the error comes from one of our backs.

Same old, same old. But yeah it was miraculously going to be better at the wc. And Lukaku's link up play...

Vertonghen plays like a CB

Wonder what they're yammering about before taking a free-kick: I bet you a fiver, I can at least hit the goal

Chadli replaced by Mertens. Was surprised Chadli started ahead of Mertens and Mirallas.

I can't believe Belgium won't create some kind of decent chance in this half but it sets the group up nicely if Algeria get something from this or win

Poor first half from Belgium that but it's always going to be difficult to break down all 11 men behind the ball and playing as deep as Algeria are. Not surprising though and of course they got the break with the penalty.

Belgium need to up the tempo and have more movement in the final third.

They had a decent chance at the end of the first half, Chadli was put in by Hazard, easily saved though from a tight angle. :)

Fun fact - before today Algeria's last world cup goal was scored past a then 40 year old Pat Jennings, Jennings is now 69 :D

Which bandwagon will the hipsters jump on next if this is the best Belgium can do?

My money's on Costa Rica.

Read it as though you were talking about the first half.

Lukaku off !!

I want Januzaj to come on, don't think he will though.

I want Januzaj on too, but doubt Wilmots will take the chance on a kid turning this around. Probably Mirallas instead.

Quite a dive there, but still a freekick.

I thought everyone was already on the Costa Rica bandwagon. That's a WAY more fun bandwagon than the Belgium bandwagon.
