Algeria's four goals ended a 32-year wait for a World Cup win and shot them into contention for a last 16 place for the first time in four tournaments.The Beira Rio stadium echoed to the chants of "1-2-3, Vive Algerie" after the final whistle from Algeria's vociferous green and white clad fans.Yacine Brahimi's 62nd-minute goal also set a record, making Algeria the highest-scoring African side in a single World Cup match. Remarkably, until they scored against Belgium last week, Algeria had not netted a World Cup goal for 28 years.Algeria's fate is now in their own hands. A victory over Russia would see them through and a draw might be sufficient, depending on the result between Belgium and South Korea.
