USA vs. Belgium: Lineups and match thread

Friedemann Vogel

The U.S. hosts Belgium in a friendly. It might not go well.

The United States has three crucial World Cup qualifiers coming up next month, which means there is a camp and a couple friendlies to prepare for them. They don't really matter -- or at least the results don't -- because they are really just opportunities for players to mesh and some players to prove their deserve bigger roles with the team. But matter or not, there is still a scoreboard and America has a habit of doing well on them.

The Americans' first friendly of the summer comes tonight against Belgium. Crap.

Michael Bradley, Fabian Johnson, Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Danny Williams are all unavailable tonight. Double crap.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is in Cleveland. Triple Crap.

United States (4-4-1-1): Tim Howard; Geoff Cameron, Omar Gonzalez, Clarence Goodson, DaMarcus Beasley; Graham Zusi, Jermaine Jones, Sacha Kljestan, Brad Davis; Clint Dempsey; Jozy Altidore.

Belgium (4-3-3): Simon Mignolet; Toby Alderweireld, Vincent Kompany, Thomas Vermaelen, Jan Vertonghen; Marouane Fellaini, Steven Defour, Moussa Dembele; Kevin Mirallas, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne.
