UPDATE: They’ve done it again – Algeria survives to the Round of 16 with a 1-1 draw with Russia.
As we discussed previously, Algeria lived through one do-or-die moment against South Korea in group play. Today, they’ll hope to live through another as they take on Russia. If Les Fennecs can win, they’ll move on to the knockout stage along with Belgium. But if they lose, Russia advances. Watch the action live at 4 PM ET (8 PM UTC).
