The USA takes on Belgium in the knock-out round of World Cup action today in Brazil. The match is at 2 p.m., Mountain Time.

After a 1-1-1 performance in group play, the USA advanced on to this stage of play for the first time since the 2002 World Cup.

It's been interesting to listen to and read about sports commentators take on the US in the World Cup. I've even seen one column about how it's "our patriotic duty to hate Belgium" today. I don't know if I'd go that far, but I'm definitely pulling for the good ol' USA today.

So, what are our chances? Give me your take.....
