Belgium won all three group games by the odd goal and without playing at their best, qualified relatively comfortably.

United States lost 1-0 to Germany in their final group match, however they still qualified, second behind the Germans.

A win for Jurgen Klinsmann’s side would have been enough to top the group, but Thomas Muller’s second half winner separated the sides.

Belgium have won the last four meetings between the two nations, including a 4-2 victory as recently as last summer.
