The moment of truth has arrived for US soccer and Klinnsmann has declared that his team are not going to be afraid of Belgium but instead they are going to be positive and leash attack after attack. Belgium came through the group stage wreally without getting out of second gear according to many soccer experts, but judging from ALgeria’s performance yesterday, Belgium registered a great win in that opening game as they took Germany into extra time.
Although three wins from three they failed to hit the heights expected of their exciting, star-studded squad with somewhat lukewarm performances and late shows, with players such as Hazard, Lukaku, Mirallas, Maertens.
US may have some difficulty in trying to penetrate the defensive wall of the belgians. Van Buyten will captain Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany at the back, where elegant dfender Vertonghen and Witsel will be on the flanks.
“We are going to take it to them, without a shadow of a doubt”, excalimed Klinsmann as he is preparing to adopt a meticulous approach, which should bring out the best of his players. We believe in this group of players and we know for a fact that all the US will have their eyes on us, so we expect to turn up, give a good performance and the least thing we do is battle till the last minute.”
If US will pass through this tough test, US soccer will come a long way, and it will only start to generate more interest in the US. MLS chief’s and everyojne involved in soccer in the US is on their knees praying for a good result, but with all the good planning and believe which players, officials possess, the US will be confident going into tonight’s game.
