World Cup Brazil 2014, Day 6: Brazil starts Round 2

Buda Mendes

Marcelo will start for Brazil against Mexico, Courtois will defend Belgium's goal against Algeria and Fabio Capello will conduct the Russian squad against the Republic of Korea.

The first game today features one of the candidates to be the World Cup's standout. Courtois, Kompany, Hazard, Lukaku and the rest of the Belgians face Algeria in the first game in Group H. In principle, Belgium is clear favourite to win the match, but the Algerian's fast counterattack is to be feared.

Later on, Brazil will confront Mexico in the first game of Round 2. Both teams lead Group A with three points, ahead of Croatia and Cameroon. Marcelo will, for sure, be in the lineup, despite his own goal against Croatia in the opening game.

Finally, Russia will face the Republic of Korea in the last game today. The Russians, run by our former coach Fabio Capello (with whom we won two leagues in two seasons), will put their best on the field to obtain a victory and fight the Belgians for the first place in Group H.
