The 31st contest of the FIFA World Cup 2014 is going to be held between Belgium and Russia. The Group H contest should be exciting as Belgium will try to make sure its place in the “group of 16” by winning this contest. Russia, however, must not lose this contest as it has only 1 point so far. If Belgium loses this game, the table will be wide open.
