CLEVELAND– The United States Men’s soccer team did not play well and lost 4-2 to Belgium in a “friendly” soccer match at FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns.

Nearly 28,000 fans showed up, but went home disappointed as the Belgian squad controlled most of the game.

U.S. star Clint Dempsey scored on a penalty kick and Geoff Cameron scored the other goal for the Americans.

The game against Belgium, ranked 15th in the world, is considered a “friendly” in that it doesn’t officially count in world standings.

The U.S. is currently ranked 29th in the world.

The U.S. plays another “friendly” later this week against a powerful team from Germany.

World Cup qualifying continues for the Americans against Jamaica on June 7.
