Kenyan Origi late goal gives Belgium 1-0 win over Russia to send Belgium into last 16
Divock Origi, son to Kenyan Legend Mike Okoth, comes off the bench and scores a cracker of a goal to demolish Russia 1-0 in Group H to send them into the second round.
Divock Origi’s late strike earned Belgium a 1-0 Group H win over Russia at the Maracana Stadium on Sunday to seal a spot in the knockout round of the World Cup.
Origi broke the deadlock in the 88th minute, slamming home Eden Hazard’s cutback to give the Belgians the win. Russia, who drew 1-1 with South Korea in their opener, went close through Alexander Kokorin and Andrey Eschenko.
The draw puts Belgium on six points and leaves on one.
