Another day of World Cup action has passed us by, with six more nations getting their second group-stage games out of the way—and another step is taken toward qualification for the knock-out rounds, or an early plane home.

Belgium took a late 1-0 victory over Russia, before a crazy, see-saw game saw Algeria run out 4-2 winners over Korea Republic. Belgian boss Marc Wilmots praised his impact substitute Divock Origi, the scorer of the winning goal, after the game, per Graham Chase of BBC Sport.

"[Origi] is in a good space right now," Wilmots said. "He's 19 years old. It was a bit of a surprise since he was an unknown before I selected him. Now everyone knows who he is. It was not an easy match but I think we deserved to win it."

The final fixture of the evening saw Portugal take and then surrender the lead against United States, before finding an equaliser themselves in the last seconds of the match. 

Here is our best XI of the day, unsurprisingly featuring a number of stars from Algeria's victory.
