1. Eden Hazard
Unsurprisingly, Chelsea's Eden Hazard has effortlessly made his presence felt at this summer's World Cup in Brazil. The 23-year-old has not been at his best for Belgium, having admitted to reporters that he was a "2/10" for 80 minutes against Russia, but has made an impact for his country nevertheless.
As Opta stats show, Hazard registered two assists in Group H and won 13 dribbles - one of the highest amounts of the tournament so far.
The forward is known worldwide for his skill on the ball and that skill alone can win games for Belgium should Hazard perform at his best during the knockout stages. Next up for the Belgians is the USA.
2. Divock Origi
So dominant have Marc Wilmots' side been that, of our list of three, two are from the Group H winners. Alongside Hazard, Divock Origi has been a revelation for Belgium, proving a more-than-adequate replacement for the out-of-form Romelu Lukaku.
The 19-year-old has scored once and won six dribbles in his 95 minutes on-field, making a considerable impact off the bench. In terms of points, however, the Lille man has arguably won his side six out of their accumulated nine.
Against Russia, Origi came on to score Belgium's winner, while Jan Vertonghen's strike against South Korea only came as a result of Origi's original finish.
3. Islam Slimani
Algeria's Islam Slimani has already proven a history-maker this summer in Brazil. It was the 26-year-old's goal that took the Algerians through to the knockout stages for the first time in their history. Heading home against Russia, Slimani scored his second in three games to truly make his mark at the World Cup.

As the stats show, that wasn't the only aerial duel he won, while he also registered an assist. Slimani's next game is a clash against Joachim Low's Germany, where he - and his team-mates - will have to be at their absolute best.
One thing perhaps working in Algeria's favour, though, is the pace they have at their disposal - and Germany's lack thereof.
