World Cup 2014: USA vs. Belgium Open Thread

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The USA looks to upset Belgium Tuesday in the 2014 World Cup.

The USA faces Belgium Tuesday (4 p.m. ET/ESPN) in the 2014 World Cup. A victory advances the USA to the final eight. A loss sends the U.S. Men's National Team home.

In its match preview, SB Nation says Belgium appears vulnerable, but still predicts a Belgium victory:

Belgium have certainly looked flawed at the World Cup so far, but individually they're certainly a better side than the United States, and have looked pretty solid at the back so far this tournament. Unlike some of the other teams in the knockouts, they're not liable to leave much space for the USMNT to surge into on the counter-attack, and should eventually be able to break the American defence down. 1-0 Belgium.

If you need a little something to help you get pumped up, here is the ultimate USMNT vs. Belgium hype video:
