Belgium player ratings v Algeria: Manchester United midfielder stars in 25 minutes

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini came on as a 70th minute substitute and inspired a Belgium 2-1 comeback

Thibaut Courtois 6 - Wasn’t called upon for much and was quite close for the penalty.

Toby Alderweireld 6 - Had a quiet game and didn't necessarily have a lot to do.

Daniel van Buyten 5 - Didn’t show much faith at the back and certainly didn’t look like a defender to be afraid off.

Vincent Kompany 6 - Fairly solid game from the Manchester City man, did what was needed when called upon, but did nothing outstanding either.

Jan Vertonghen 5 - Awful challenge for the penalty, and made a few mistakes, showed a definite lack of match practice.

Moussa Dembélé 5 - Completely missing throughout the game and showed no forward drive like he does so well for Tottenham Hotspur.

Axel Witsel 7 - Played fairly well despite a missing midfield around him, challenged the keeper from far with great shots on target.

Kevin De Bruyne 6 - Tried his best but failed to make an impact, struggled to gain a grip of the game.

Nacer Chadli 4 - Was non-existent throughout the first half and there was no surprise to see him subbed at half-time.

Eden Hazard 6 - Finally started to be a threat towards the end of the game but did very little early on.

Romelu Lukaku 5 - Never did much at all, but wasn't his fault. Lukaku was feeding on scraps all game.


Dries Mertens 7 - Didn’t do a lot straight away, but as the game grew on the half-time substitute really started to impose himself and ended up grabbing the winner.

Divock Origi 7 - This 19-year-old just upped whatever price tag he currently has. Coming out of nowhere Origi put a real spark into Belgium’s attacking force.

Marouane Fellaini 8 - Played a pivotal role in turning this game around, brilliant goal and caused countless problems. Looked nothing like the same player that was wearing a United shirt last season.
