The Red Devils go into their round of 16 tie – kick-off 9pm – defending a 100 per cent record at the tournament so far.
But with USA having already demonstrated their abilities in front of goal with a series of impressive showings in the group stage, defender Jan knows his nation will have to be at their best if they’re to find a way past Jurgen Klinsmann’s men tonight.
“It’s a big game,” said Jan, who captained Belgium and scored their goal in last week’s 1-0 win over South Korea. “We’re playing a very strong opponent who did well in their group but if we can beat them we’ll get to the quarter-finals so we have to take our chance.
“We’re looking forward to the match.”
