RIO DE JANEIRO — Teenage forward Divock Origi scored in the 88th minute as Belgium beat Russia 1-0 Sunday to secure a spot in the second round at the World Cup.
Belgium struggled to find a way through the Russian defense until the dying stages of the Group H match, with Kevin Mirallas hitting the post with a free kick in the 84th and Eden Hazard sending a shot wide before Origi’s close-range right-foot winner in front of more than 73,819 people at the Maracana.
Belgium has six points and leads the group after opening with a 2-1 win over Algeria.
