There’s all to play for in this final Group H match between Algeria and Russia, with the winner progressing to the last-16 at the expense of the other.

After a convincing 4-2 victory over South Korea in their last outing the Algerians hold the upper hand and they only need a draw to confirm their place in the knockout phase – bar a mathematical miracle.

The Africans have no new injury concerns and are on the verge of qualifying from a World Cup group for the first time in their history.

For the Russians a late defeat to Belgium in their last game means they have just one point from two matches and Fabio Capello’s men are on the brink of crashing out of the tournament.

Aleksandr Kozlov will undergo a late fitness test for a knock he picked up against the Belgians and Capello will be desperate to at least equal the last-16 finish he achieved with England at the 2010 World Cup.
