Maksim Kanunnikov makes a nice run in behind in the box to meet a long cross, but is punished by another soft foul.
Russia look more dangerous in this half, and Belgium are having to work hard in defence to keep them out.
Maksim Kanunnikov goes in hard on Alex Witsel here and the Belgian is holding his shoulder in pain.
Cheers Gq007ia, enjoy it!
Witsel is back on and is moving fairly freely now.
52 minutes in, and I would say the pace is sluggish, but that would offend slugs.
Some excitement now, as Denis Glushakov goes for a spinning half-volley from the left, but it flies a yard or two over the opposite side of the goal.
Oleg Shatov is grabbed by Alex Witsel, and the Belgian receives a soft booking.
