Live Blog: The U.S. Takes On Belgium In Knockout Round

July 1, 2014

After a dramatic, up-and-down and difficult group stage, it’s do or die for the U.S. in Brazil today.

They’re taking on Belgium for a chance to move on to the World Cup’s quarterfinals.

A win today would be huge for the U.S. squad, because the last time they reached the quarterfinals was in 2002.

The game starts at 4 p.m. ET. and will air on ESPN and Univision. We’ll be keeping tabs on the game on this post, so hit the refresh button to see the latest.
