For all you fans who are excited and jumping up with excitement for one of today’s match. Here’s a little of my excitement as well. Highly physical, probably defensive and anxiety-ridden for sure. Not exactly the kind of happy football that fans have enjoyed so far at the World Cup, but it’s the likely scenario for Tuesday’s second-round clash between Belgium and the United States.
Belgium has not reached the quarterfinals since 1986 and the U.S. team has already exceeded expectations by emerging from a tough opening group and wants to ride that momentum. That even though Belgium recently beat the U.S. 4-2 in a friendly and is “one of the up-and-coming superstar powers in Europe,” he feels his team can “match up well against them.”
“We relish the role of underdog,” Howard said. “It keeps us hungry. It allows us to not be complacent.”
SO LETS WISH THEM GOOD LUCK!!!!!
