    Oh ****. Penalty to Algeria. 1-0. Good start for the Belgians. Now expect Algeria to sit with 10 at the back for the rest of the game.

    If you could be the dark horses for most overrated team Belgium would have it in the bag.

    Not sure about actual dark horses.

    Nice thing for Algeria that they got a penalty, because **** knows they weren't scoring any other way. Seriously uninspiring half.

    Algeria look like a well-drilled side. Belgium not offering a lot mind you; they've been really sloppy in possession. Vertonghen all over the place for the pen as well.

    Belgium have been very poor so far. Surely can't play that bad in the 2nd half.

    They looked like they were picking up towards the end of the half, but you wonder how much of that was down to Algeria tiring.

    Looks like they took the entire first half to remember the whole idea in football is scoring goals as opposed to stat-padding.

    All three subs were really good. Horrible first half though.

    Another team gets run over after going 1-0 up, then.

    Impressed with Algeria on the whole. Looked very well organised, made things really difficult for Belgium. Some good qualityiin the second half from Belgium, though... So probably probably deserved the win.

    More goals in 25 minutes for Belgium than in an entire season for United. WAFC.

    Both teams look fairly well organised at the back, but neither are particularly good/imaginative in attack. Not a great watch; the kind of game a pundit might call a "fascinating contest".
