  • New record in world cup history. Lukaku played for an hour and did not have a SINGLE touch on the ball in the opponent half! ZERO...

  • Why doesn't Fellaini play like this for Manchester United?

  • @El_Duderino Fellaini, yes. Witsel, no!

  • @Philip_AE this is what I have been wondering.

  • @Philip_AE being played out of Position, was playing CAM or CF whereas you've been using him as a DM

  • Infortanaly it wasn't the algerian style but it still the coach choice,i hope that they can make the come back in the 2 next matches.

  • Also, Hazard MotM? Come one, he wasn't bad, but he wasn't best either. Witsel or Fellaini for me.

  • @El_Duderino It's based on stats. It isn't subjective. Fellaini got a huge score for only 25 or so minutes on the pitch. Hazard only got MOTM as he played 90 minutes and had more time to build his score.

  • @RelentlessPressure I believed that for some time, but if was based solely on stats, Messi would be constantly overrated here. They also changed the note several times after the game for some players.

  • @El_Duderino Messi IS constantly overrated here

  • Van Buyten 7.5? He was awful. Absolutely the worst player there was. He plays like a slacker.

  • Belgium was supreme today, problem was they started with to defensive formation. They did the same thing as Germany did against Portugal. Except they didn't need to play with four central defenders (Vertongen and Alderweireld are not full backs) against Algeria and one to many defensive midfielder (Chadli). There was no movement on the side, cuz of no support from full backs. De Bruyne was absolutely awful until the first goal. But the worst of the worst was Van Buyten. Wilmost, why? Why did you let him play? He made so many mistakes and when they needed the ball to push forward as fast as they can, he looked like he's on the training ground. making two many steps, passing the ball to slow, in wrong direction. He was useless and they need to bench him. Also Mirralas for De Bruyne, Fellaini for Chadli, Origi for Lukaku and Meartens for Dembele. They don't have nobody supreme to them in their group so better start playing little more offensive.

  • @El_Duderino Chadli isn't a defensive midfielder. I don't see how you can drop De Bruyne . He assisted the first goal and his tackle led to the counter attack for the second goal. Belgium have so many options it's hard to work out the best side. I think the most likely team for the next game is Courtois, the same back four, Witsel, Dembele/Fellaini, Hazard (left), De Bruyne (central), Mertens (right), Lukaku/Origi.

  • Chadli was defensive today. He wasn't present in pentaly area except that one time in first half and they nothing. No shots, no passes forward. Belgium has a problem with the fullbacks which are really the center-backs playing the side. And like i said, i thought Van Buyten was exceptionally bad and he needs to be replace by Vermaelen or Vertongen.

  • Long balls into Fellaini are so effective lol

  • Now this performance wasn't very flattering. Gotta give credit to Algeria for trying their best.

  • Fellani been wasted by Man utd

  • @sun more like the he isn't fit to be a CM/CDM in the prem. Pretty sure most EPL teams are better than Algeria

  • @khonda thought he played pretty good at everton

  • @drewisdrew as a CAM/ Supporting striker.

  • Slimani scores the game winner at 84' book it

  • football lesson by algeria, wilmots go home!!

  • Dark horses are drunks !

  • There is no intention to score for belgium.There r lacking penetration.Hopefully they will do well in second half

  • seriously?? is that all you got belgium?

  • @Chris667 They look like they just met before the game o_O So weird.

  • one shot on target belgium.....ok! and do you want to win world cup? ahaha

  • superb boring match

  • Time to see what Belgium are made of. Algeria are a solid team and hard to break down.

  • Did you know that Belgium never lost a game when Courtois was playing! :-)

  • @ralleke There's always a first time. Like this one.

  • @Godric Did u say something haha :-)

  • Dembele will play instead of Fellaini.

  • most probably Mirallas instead of Mertens.

  • Belgium has no full backs.

  • @Ivannnnn Vanden Borre.

  • @ralleke Yeah, I mean no good full backs.
