Match of the Day Live: Belgium v USA

About this programme

Belgium v USA (Kick-off 9.00pm). The last-16 stage concludes with this clash at the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil. Despite not yet seeming to have found top gear, Belgium won Group H with victories over Algeria, Russia and South Korea. A number of Premier League-based players, including Vincent Kompany, Eden Hazard and Kevin Mirallas are seen as part of a golden generation for the nation, though they and some of their colleagues have so far struggled to capture their best form so far during this tournament. Despite losing their final Group G fixture 1-0 to Germany and being the group's underdogs at the start of the competition, the Americans managed to progress to the knockout stages for a second consecutive World Cup with a victory over Ghana and a draw against Portugal. Gary Lineker presents, with commentary by Steve Wilson and Danny Murphy. In the event of extra-time and penalties, subsequent programmes are subject to change.
