Belgium vs Russia player ratings World Cup 2014: Did Marouane Fellaini make an impact?

A look at the individual performances from this Group H encounter

Belgium are through to the knock-out phase of the competition thanks to a late goal from Divock Origi.

Everyone's dark horses for the competition were once again reliant on a player coming off the bench to make a difference.

While in the 2-1 opening win over Algeria it was the experienced pair of Marouane Fellaini and Dries Mertens, who both were rewarded with a place in the starting XI for this match, against Russia it was a somewhat unknown 19-year-old.

Origi, who was making just his fourth appearance for Belgium and has only appeared 22 times in Ligue 1 for club side Lille, scored after 88 minutes after good combination play with Eden Hazard.

The result means Belgium are through to the knock-out stage while Russia can still make it through, despite Fabio Capello's side being on just one point.
