Belgium are taking on USA in a second round game at Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador. Belgium topped the group by winning all their three matches during the Group stage of the FIFA World Cup 2014. On the other hand, USA qualified for Round of 16 despite winning just one of their games. Belgium under their coach, Marc Wilmots have a fine set of players.

USA came through a rather tough group.  They beat Ghana but lost to Group toppers, Germany 1-0. USA are known for being very disciplined at the back.  The key players for USA in that regard are Jermaine Jones, Kyle Beckerman and Michael Bradley.
