usa belgium USA vs Belgium, International Friendly: Open Thread

Live from Cleveland, it’s the United States Men’s National Team against Belgium in an international friendly. For viewers in the United States, the game will be shown live on ESPN and ESPN3.com at 8pm ET.

USA starting XI: Howard, D. Beasley, Gonzalez, Goodson, Cameron, Jones, Kljestan, Davis, Dempsey, Zusi, Altidore.

Belgium starting XI: Mignolet, Vertonghen, Vermaelen, Kompany, Alderweireld, Defour, Fellaini, Dembele, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Mirallas.

Belgium’s starting XI reads like a who’s who of the Premier League featuring stars from Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Spurs and other clubs. Eden Hazard will not feature in this match, however. Meanwhile, DaMarcus Beasley wins his 100th cap for the United States tonight in a lineup with very few surprises.

The match tonight will give the United States a stern test against one of the most promising international teams in Europe.
