General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 Another free kick to Algeria inside the Russian half and surely this should do it!
IT'S OVER! ALGERIA ARE THROUGH TO THE KNOCKOUT STAGES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR HISTORY! Incredible scenes here as the Algerian players can hardly contain their emotions!
90' +3 Tension rising! Russia sending everyone forward. Kanunnikov wins a throw near the corner flag, but it's given away and Algeria can break. Berezutski is forced into a foul and Algeria are less than a minute away from a place in the last 16!
90' +2 L. Cadamuro gets yellow.
90' +1 E. Soudani enters the game and replaces I. Slimani.
Algeria continue to try and waste time. Russia win a throw inside their own half, and an Algerian player leaps off the bench to kick the ball into the crowd, earning himself a yellow card.
90' With all the men Russia have forward, it has to be said that they really aren't posing much of a threat at goal. Algeria are defending valiantly here, and you can just see how much this means to them. Three minutes to be added on as Russia win a corner...
NEARLY THE WINNER! Kozlov gets his head to the ball, and if only for a second, it looked to be looping in at the far post, but it bounces wide and Algeria can take their time with this goal kick.
88' STAT ATTACK: Algeria conceded a stoppage time goal to Landon Donovan in the final group game at the 2010 World Cup that sent the Americans through to the knockout stages.
87' N. Ghilas gets yellow.
86' Yellow card for the substitute Ghilas as he goes hard into the back of Kombarov. Russia win themselves a free kick to the left of the area in prime position to send in a cross, but Samedov puts it straight into the hands of M'Bolhi. With chances few and far between, they can't afford to waste opportunities like that.
84' Russia are attempting to direct all their attacks from the flanks, perhaps due to a lack of options in a packed middle of the pitch. Everyone back to defend for Algeria, who proceed to boot the ball away any chance they get.
82' Oh that could have been the chance! Samedov gets the ball inside the area near the end-line, and has Kanunnikov alone at the far post, but sends his chipped cross just too far for the substitute to make contact with. Time is running out for them, and the Algeria fans can taste the knockout stages!
