Belgium’s squad of familiar stars play Russia’s entirely home-based side in the latest Group H match tonight.

Eleven of Belgium’s current squad play in the Premier League, including national and club captain Vincent Kompany; only three of their current squad are based in Belgium.

By contrast, all 23 of Russia’s World Cup squad play in Russia, the only team in the tournament to have all their internationals playing in their own domestic league.
