Belgium counts Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Thomas Vermaelan, Vincent Kompany and Fletch Fellaini amongst its ranks. And it probably won’t even qualify for the Euro next summer.
Did I say Vermaelen? He’s not in the squad today. He got hurt against Udinese and had his ankle operated on. Even when Arsenal players aren’t even playing they get ruled out for 4-6 weeks. Stupid game.
Anyway, the ÜSMNT will tee up their third attempt (if at first you don’t succeed… ) to get its first win under Klinsy. Line-ups after the jump (Note: ‘the jump’ doesn’t really apply in this layout):
US: Howard; Cherundolo, Goodson, Bocanegra (capt.), Chandler; Edu, Torres, Dempsey; Rogers, Altidore, Shea (bench: Hamid, Orozco Fiscal, Beckerman, Larentowicz, Kljestan, Spector, Agudelo)
Belgium: Mignolet, Kompany, Lombaerts, Ciman, Alderweireid, Simons, Fletch, Witsel, Martens, De Camargo, Hazard (Bench: Some more Belgians)
