FIFA World Cup 2014: Algeria vs Russia 48th Match in Pictures

Algeria came from behind to draw with Russia and reach the last 16 of the Fifa World Cup for the first time.
Ex-England boss Fabio Capello saw his Russia side take an early lead when an unmarked Aleksandr Kokorin headed in from Dmitri Kombarov's left-wing cross.
But Algeria grabbed an equaliser in the second half as Islam Slimani converted from Yacine Brahimi's free-kick.
Russia could not score a winning goal as Algeria held on to secure a tie with Germany in the second round on Monday.
The goalkeeper had also made a costly error in his side's opening 1-1 draw with South Korea as he let a shot from Lee Keun-Ho slip through his fingers and into the net.
