    I like U.S. chances against this side.

      In my opinion, how well the US does really depends on Michael Bradley. If good MB shows up, that attacks defenses with incisive passes and bosses the midfield, I like the US chances too. However, if the same MB shows up that we’ve seen the last three matches, the US will be coming home rather early.

        Nonsense..

        The team qualified for the round of 16 from arguably the toughest group in the Cup

        This is a team sport my friend..

        If Michael Bradley “struggles” then someone must step up to cover the slack..

        While the Belgian side presents a pretty formidable challenge in the knockout round, both teams understand what’s at stake here..

        Team management will formulate a plan to attack the game just as they’ve done the previous 3..

        I think he is saying that if MB is able to connect the defense with the offense, then we have a good chance to win because we will be balanced as opposed to defending the majority of the game like we had to do against Ghana and Germany.

    I haven’t been following Belgium. Does Steven Defour play a lot? How much will they miss him?

      This was Defour’s first start of the tournament, so he’s not a significant loss for them.

        Unless their normal starter gets hurt …

      Best stomper on the team.

        Oops, forgot about Fellaini. I guess you could say Defour is learning well from the master.

    Best part of this match? Listening to Alejandro Moreno. He was insightful and didn’t get in the way of the action, making a boring game enjoyable. Hope he gets promoted to the A-team, because the ESPN color commentary is often, well, lacking.
