Rarely troubled by a cautious Algeria side but was sent the wrong way for the penalty.
D. Van Buyten
Looked reasonable alongside Kompany but could struggle against more dangerous opponents.
Solid enough and kept Algeria's strikers, Soudani and Islami, quiet for the duration.
Looked off the pace and was caught napping for the penalty early.
Failed to cut out Mahrez's delivery from the right wing in the buildup to the penalty.
Sacrificed for Mertens at the break after failing to cause problems.
Other than efforts from distance, he struggled to dominate the game as we know he can.
Largely ineffective and was replaced by Fellaini — a masterstroke from Wilmots.
Not at his best but supplied the assist for Mertens' winner.
K. De Bruyne
Struggled early on but delivered the telling delivery for Fellaini's equalizer.
Strangely anonymous performance from the youngsters. Brought off for Origi.
Kept busy due to Algeria's defensive approach. Did well but could not hold back the tide on his own.
Kept Chadli at bay but struggled to deal with Mertens.
The most solid of the Algerian defenders — won headers and marshaled the back line well.
Threatened along with Feghouli but was stifled by Algeria's defensive approach.
Algeria's danger man. His pace won the penalty and his composure helped score it.
Helped keep Belgium at bay — just not for long enough.
Went close with a header but struggled to impose himself on the game.
Mostly quiet and was booked for a poor tackle in the first half.
Struggled to cope up top on his own, especially with Kompany and Van Buyten surrounding him.
Dangerous in spells. Fired the delivery that led to the penalty.
