First, check out our USA vs Belgium World Cup 2014 match preview. What are US team’s chances of upsetting the European dark horses? Pretty high, we would say.
The good and bad of H2H stats
The statistical history is against the USA. Belgium has won four of the five matches between these sides. But the US fans need not get disappointed. There is a good omen. The only time they have played against in each other in world cups, the USA emerged victorious. But that was in 1930, in the very first world cup, held in Uruguay. The USA thrashed Belgium 3-0 in that match.
How they fared in this world cup?
Belgium has not quite lived up to their pre-tournament expectations. Nevertheless, they have managed to win all their group games. They are one of the only two teams to have achieved the feat, the Netherlands being the other. They have had somewhat easier opponents. And all their goals were scored in the second half – and substitutes scored most of the goals. Belgium appeared like a team that has not reached its full throttle yet. The USA has played delightful football, despite having registered only one win. However, that win came against their usual nemesis, Ghana. They drew with Portugal and lost to Germany. But they played fearlessly in both the games. They relish on quickfire counter attacks. Belgium possesses a solid defense. It will be a great match-up between the pace and guile of the US forwards and the determination of Belgium defenders.
Who do you think is going to be the game changer?
Both the teams have their own marquee players. Jozy Altidore is available for selection. He could partner Clint Dempsey in the attack. All the others, especially Jermaine Jones and Omar Gonzalez, are in good nick. The only concern is the profligate ways of Michael Bradley. (Let us hope previewer’s curse falls on us and Bradley scores against Belgium.) Belgium has some stars who are yet to find their radar, such as Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku. If they belatedly find their rhythm, they can silence the thousands of US supporters that are likely to be present in the stadium.
