The U.S. booked its passage to the World Cup's Round of 16 last Thursday, losing 1-0 to Germany in its group stage finale but getting help from Portugal in its 2-1 win over Ghana to finish second in Group G with a 1-1-1 record. Real Salt Lake Captain Kyle Beckerman has played a leading role for the U.S. at the tournament, earning widespread praise for his steady 90-minute performances in all three of the U.S.'s games in the Group of Death. RSL GK Nick Rimando is also on the U.S. roster in Brazil, though he hasn't yet played and isn't expected to feature at the tournament.

Belgium advanced to the Knockout Stage by winning Group H. The Red Devils posted a 3-0-0 record in the group stage, scoring late goals in all three matches to beat Algeria, Russia and South Korea.

Real Salt Lake will return to action on Friday, when it hosts Eastern Conference foe New England Revolution at 8:00 p.m. MT at Rio Tinto Stadium in a match that will be followed by an Independence Day fireworks show.
