After securing a victory against Algeria last week, Belgium faced Russia on Sunday. 

Manager Marc Wilmots made a few changes to his first XI. Marouane Fellaini took the place of Moussa Dembele in the centre of midfield, while Dries Mertens started instead of Nacer Chadli.

Thomas Vermaelen, who had to be replaced after about half an hour, was picked instead of Jan Vertonghen

Here, we take a look at six things the Belgians can learn from this match.
