CHANCE DEMPSEY: Yedlin down the right crosses it in and Dempsey is almost on the end of it but it's cleared out for a throw. If Dempsey got a head on that, would have been almost impossible for Courtois to stop.
A couple crosses into the box, but nobody able to get a clean head to the ball for the U.S.
Mexican wave is rocking round the Arena Fonte Nova. The US fans are loving it.
CHANCE USA: Dempsey controls and finds Jones, but he shanks the shot and it goes left of the post. Still 0-0 but what a match so far. Frantic pace.
Jones fires one wide left off a Zusi corner
Fabian Johnson coming off with an apparent leg injury, DeAndre Yedlin replaces him in the 32nd minute
Nice smother by Howard on the Belgium counterattack. U.S. being outplayed pretty heavily early, though
Belgium have had 6 corners in under half an hour. Gives you an idea of the pressure the USA are under. But there's always the counter attack potential that USA showed against Portugal and Germany. They are up for this one.
28 Mins- It's a frantic pace in Salvador. The USA are under the cosh and absorbing a lot of pressure. Corner to Belgium.
Terrific clear off the goal line by Beasley after Howard was beaten
CHANCE BELGIUM: Vertongen streaks down the left and crosses it back for Fellaini but it's cleared off the line by the USA. All Belgium now and the USA are camped in their own half.
22 MINS - CHANCE FOR BELGIUM! Susi coughs up possession in the centre circle and Belgium have men over. The ball is fed to Kevin De Bruyne who cuts inside onto his right foot and drags a weak shot wide of Howard's goal. Bad miss.
U.S. avoids disaster after an awful giveaway in midfield. Belgian shot goes wide left
21 MINS - CHANCE FOR USA! Bradley and Dempsey combine on the edge of the Belgium box. The ball eventually breaks to the USA captain who lifts a tame shot into the welcome arms of Thibaut Courtois
Dempsey with a clear chance at the top of the box, saved
20 MINS - USA earn their first corner which that man Cameron gets his head to but only serves to set up a dangerous looking counter for Belgium.
17 MINS - Geoff Cameron, who has not started the game well, becomes the first player to go into the referee's notebook after a sturdy challenge
15 MINS - Play interrupted by an interloper from the stands. Looked remarkably like Will Ferrell. The stewards let him to a lap of the pitch before escorting back to the nearest bar.
Fan on the field....Jurgen Klinsmann is not amused
Game has settled in a bit, not many chances for the U.S. thus far
10 MINS - Both teams have settled into the match and looking to create the next opportunity on goal. Belgium win a fortunate corner from an aimless long throw but it's cleared by the USA.
6 MINS - DaMarcus Beasley stretches his legs and goes for a run down the left, chased by Fellaini. Cross goes out for a goal kick. Positive from the left back.
4 MINS- Bit calmer now for USA who are looking to probe the Belgian defence. Cameron looking lively trying to thread through balls. Still 0-0.
CHANCE BELGIUM! Origi onto a through ball and slams it into Howard who saves it with his right leg. Good save but shaky start for USA.
Belgium with a first-minute chance, but Howard punches it wide
