Day 6 Results

Belgium vs Algeria — Belgium wins 2-1

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil—Belgium opened its World Cup Group H campaign with a 2-1 comeback win over Algeria on Tuesday, relying on second-half goals from two substitutes.

Marouane Fellaini’s strong glancing header in the 70th minute with his back to goal came from a Kevin De Bruyne cross. Fellaini had only come onto the pitch five minutes earlier and was coach Marc Wilmots’ final substitution.

Ten minutes later, Dries Mertens’ shot beat Algeria’s goalkeeper from close range after Eden Hazard set him up for the decider. Mertens came on at the start of the second half.

Algeria attacking midfielder Sofiane Feghouli converted a penalty to give his country a surprise lead in the 25th.

Brazil vs Mexico — Game ends in 0-0 draw

FORTALEZA, Brazil—Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa made a series of outstanding saves to help Mexico hold Brazil to a 0-0 draw in the teams’ second group-stage match at the World Cup on Tuesday.

The result leaves both teams with four points each in Group A.

Ochoa just managed to keep Neymar from scoring in the 26th minute, with the Brazilian’s header set to fly just inside the post when Ochoa dived to his right to push the ball wide.

Ochoa also made three other difficult saves to keep the hosts from breaking the deadlock — a shot by Paulinho, a second-half effort by Neymar and a close-range header by Thiago Silva in the 86th minute which produced a remarkable block by the Mexico keeper.

Russia vs Korea — Game ends in 1-1 draw

CUIABA, Brazil—Alexander Kerzhakov scored with one of his first touches after coming on as a substitute to earn Russia a 1-1 draw with South Korea on Tuesday in a World Cup match marked by the first big goalkeeping error of the tournament.

Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev spilled Lee Keun-ho’s speculative shot into his own net to gift South Korea a 68th-minute lead at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba in Group H.

But Kerzhakov bailed his teammate out, turning in a shot from close range in the 74th — three minutes after coming on as a substitute — to rescue a point for Russia in a poor-quality match.
