- 5' - Russia seems to be on a short break. The game is mainly concentrated in the center. It’s high time they got back to action. Otherwise, it looks like a goalless game.
- 10' - Romelu Lukaku puts Belgium on the lead.
- 15' - The travelling Russia supporters hardly appreciate their team being pressed down to the backline.
- 20' - While there is no rush on the pitch, let’s have a look at some stats. Yuri Zhirkov made 259 appearances and scored 2 goals. He is very likely to score a goal today.
- 25' - Not even hints on scoring a goal over the last 25 minutes.
- 27' - Another change for Belgium made on 27 minute. Timothy Castagne leaves to be changed by Thomas Meunier.
- 30' - The supporters are chanting for Denis Cheryshev. He replaces Daler Kuzyaev on 30 minute.
- 34' - Goal! Thomas Meunier scores his 15 goal in 300 matches.
- 39' - Although teams showed high tempo form the start, they seem to slow down a bit. Both sides really need to catch a fire. Otherwise, we have another goalless match.
- 43' - Russia manager makes another effort to make the tables turned. Vyacheslav Karavaev is hanging Yurii Zhirkov on the field on 43 minute.

- 51' - Spectators are craving for more action. Both teams play very cautiously. They need to put some more energy.

- 61' - We miss some good tackles and strikes. Is there anyone on the field to put the game back to action?
- 63' - Maksim Mukhin has so much to prove this time. He replaces Roman Zobnin on 63 minute.
- 68' - The referee is likely to let players tackle, as he already missed some meaty challenges during opening seconds. He is still to establish what should not be done by the players and what is acceptable on the pitch. It’s going to be a tough game for Mario Fernandes suffering a number of foals already.
