Thomas Vermaelen is in at left-back for Jan Vertonghen, while his Tottenham teammates Mousa Dembélé and Nacer Chadli are both dropped after failing to impress in their narrow opening victory over Algeria. Marouane Fellaini starts in the midfield pivot with Axel Witsel, while Dries Mertens is given the nod on the right wing.
Meanwhile, Russia coach Fabio Capello has only made a couple of changes, and they're pretty straight swaps. Aleksei Kozlov is in for Andrey Yeshchenko on the right side of defence, while Maksim Kannuninov starts ahead of Yuri Zhirkov on the left side of their attacking trident.
