Team News: Algeria, Russia make one change each

Algeria and Russia make one change each for this evening's crucial World Cup Group H fixture in Curitiba.

Algeria have made one change from the side that played South Korea last Sunday for today's crucial World Group H clash against Russia in Curitiba.

Madjid Bougherra, who received a knock in his previous game, has been replaced by Watford's Essaid Belkalem, while Islam Slimani leads the line once again.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur's Nabil Bentaleb continues in midfield.

Fabio Capello's outfit also make one change, with winger Maksim Kanunnikov being replaced in the starting XI by veteran Alexander Kerzhakov.

This will be only the second meeting between the two sides. The first, a 1964 friendly, ended in a 2-2 draw.
