The final whistle sounds.

FULL TIME: Algeria are through to the World Cup knockout stages for the first time thanks to this point in Curitiba. Russia took the lead through a thumping Kokorin header in the first half but Islam Slimani's headed response in the second period was enough to send the African side through to a meeting with Germany. Already-qualified Belgium saw off Korea Republic 1-0 in the day's other game to top Group H.
