6:51pm

Hazard weaves his way through Russia again, lays it off to Mirallas whose shot is saved by Akinfeev. 

6:46pm

More brilliant work from Hazard on the left, cuts a cross back for substitute Origi. Easy finish.

6:45pm

Goal for Belgium!

6:44pm

Hazard spins in the box to make himself some space. Shot deflected wide.

6:42pm

Mirallas hits the base of the post with a low free kick. Nearly grabbed all three points.

6:39pm

Eshchenko wakes me from my slumber with a low shot that whistles past the post. Close as anyone has got in this second half.

Alderweld booked

6:26pm

Rumour has it that Christ the Redeemer has turned round so it doesn't need to watch the game.

6:16pm

Desperately poor game so far. Both teams suffering in the heat.

6:12pm

Witself booked

6:03pm

5:47pm

5:44pm

Kokorin unmarked and gets on the end of Kerzakov's cross. Heads wide - should have scored.

5:44pm

Corner cleared to the edge of the box. Faizulin volleys just over the bar.

5:39pm

Glushakov booked

5:37pm

Mertens gets round his full-back again but Akinfeev pushes away his cross. Maybe made the wrong choice not to pull the ball back towards the penalty spot.

5:27pm

Belgium just far too quick for the Russians at the monent. They need to get more bodies in the penalty box, though.

5:22pm

Mertens drifts a shot across the face of goal. Belgium looking good.

5:15pm

Great from by De Bruyne - finds Mertens on the right. He should have shot, electing to cross.

5:13pm

Courtois forced into his first save of the day as Faizulin hits a shot from the edge of the box.

5:07pm

You have got to wonder how Igor Akinfeev will fare today after that howler against the USA. Big test for him.

5:04pm

Few technical difficulties at the start of the blog. We haven't missed much.
