Belgium vs. USA, World Cup 2014: TV schedule and game time

The United States are in the knockout rounds of the World Cup again. Here's how to catch their match against Belgium.

SB Nation's 2014 World Cup Bracket'

After surviving the group of death, the United States get to face off against the opponent most expected them to see in the Round of 16. Belgium topped Group H pretty comfortably, and they'll enter their match against the USMNT as favorites to make the quarterfinals.

The Belgians haven't looked like the strong dark horse World Cup contenders everyone expected them to be, though, and no one's expecting them to coast past the United States comfortably. They struggled for the majority of their games against Algeria and Russia, but since they were able to squeak out wins on both occasions, they rested some starters against South Korea. However, that doesn't mean that they come into this game rested -- Thomas Vermaelen is out, while there are still questions about the fitness of Vincent Kompany and Marouane Fellaini.

Jurgen Klinsmann's side has some fitness concerns of their own, but they're not major. Jozy Altidore isn't expected to start, but Klinsmann confirmed on Monday that he's fit enough to play, and he'll be a bench option for the Americans if they need a goal late in the game. They've also dealt with concerns about the fitness of Matt Besler and Timothy Chandler throughout the tournament, but both are healthy, while Jermaine Jones is expected to start despite a broken nose.
