(SportingAlert.com) — With hosts Brazil back in action on day 6 at the FIFA World Cup, here are team news, TV channels and live streaming coverage for Tuesday.
Four teams, Belgium, Russia, Algeria and Korea Republic will complete the first round of the group stage, while Brazil and Mexico begin their group stage second round.
After beating Croatia in the opening game of the World Cup tournament, Neymar and Brazil return to action on match 6 against Mexico, which also won their opening game against Cameroon. The Group A game kicks off at 3:00pm ET (16:00 local time).
Neymar scored twice in Brazil’s 3-1 win over Croatia, but the host nation did not look all that convincing and will be hoping to deliver a better performance in game 2. Mexico beat Cameroon 1-0 in their group opener and CONCACAF side is expected to start the same starting lineup, which means Javier Hernandez will start on the bench again.
A very talented Belgium side takes on Algeria in Group H at Estadio Mineirao, with Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard confident of start wit a win and forward Romelu Lukaku expected to recover from an ankle injury he picked up in the final warm-up game against Tunisia.
Belgium, labelled as the “dark horses,” will start as the favourite to win this encounter, but Algeria comes into this World Cup on good form after winning three consecutive warm-up games against European teams and could make a surprise start to the tournament.
The third game on the game comes from Group H at Arena Pantanal, where Russia opens against Korea Republic.
Four years ago Russian manager Fabio Capello was managing England and watched his team played to a 1-1 draw with the United States and Italian coach will want to a better start with a new team. Capello will also keep in mind that in 2002, the last time Russia made the World Cup finals, they failed to make it past the group stages.
The clash sets up an interesting battle of styles at Cuiaba, with Russia expected to be more defensive oriented and Korea Republic to play its normal free flowing style of football.
