Belgium Vs. Netherlands 2012: Lineups

Both the Netherlands and Belgium are going with very young and very attacking lineups for their Wednesday friendly. Holland's lineup looks like a 4-3-3, but who knows how it'll actually play in practice. Probably a lot of guys running around and swapping positions in a fluid attacking front five. Total football returns! Belgium is playing Jan Verthongen out of position at left back and has smallish, usually wide forward Kevin Mirallas at center forward. He played more striker last year in Olympiakos and led the Greek league in scoring.

Netherlands lineup (4-3-3): Stekelenburg; Willems, Heitinga, Mathijsen, van Rhijn ; De Jong, van der Vaart Sneijder; Robben, Huntelaar, Narsingh

Belgium Lineup (4-2-3-1): Courtois; Verthongen, van Buyten, Vermaelen, Gillet; Defour, Witsel; Hazard, Chadli, Benteke; Mirallas

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET from Brussels. You can catch the game on ESPN Deportes in the United States, and it's also streaming on ESPN3.
