  • As Algeria beat South Korea 4-2, Belgium 1-0 Russia

Varela’s equaliser deep into injury time kept Portugal in the World Cup following a dramatic draw with USA.

The substitute dived in to head in a Cristiano Ronaldo cross after it looked like Clint Dempsey had won it for USA.

Portugal were ahead through Nani, but Jermaine Jones’s superb strike levelled the scores just after an hour.

Germany and USA top Group G on four points, while Portugal must beat Ghana in their final match to have any chance of progressing into the last 16.

And in an earlier game, Algeria moved up to second in World Cup Group H as they overcame South Korea in a six-goal thriller in Porto Alegre, reports the BBC.

Also Belgium substitute Divock Origi grabbed a winner two minutes from time against Russia to take his side into the last 16.

Alexander Kokorin missed the best chance of a lifeless opening half, heading wide from six yards.

RESULTS

USA 0 – 1 Portugal

Belgium 1 – 0 Russia

South Korea 2 – 4 Algeria
