Kevin Mirallas made his first appearance of the World Cup as Belgium secured a place in the last 16 with a late 1-0 win over Russia.

The winger, an unused substitute in the Red Devils’ 2-1 victory over Algeria earlier in the week, came off the bench with a quarter of an hour to go in Sunday’s Group H game at the Maracana.

Mirallas impressed in his short cameo, hitting the post with a low free-kick and forcing Russian keeper Igor Akinfeev into a smart save, either side of Divock Origi’s winner with just two minutes left.

The contest had earlier looked like ending in a stalemate, with chances generally few and far between over the 90 minutes.

Former Everton loanee Romelu Lukaku played almost an hour before he was withdrawn, while ex-Toffee Marouane Fellaini completed the full game.

Belgium top Group H having taken maximum points from both their matches, leaving South Korea, Algeria and Russia to scrap it out for the remaining qualification position for the knockout phase.
