Belgium beats US in Klinsmann's first away match

Belgium beats US in Klinsmann's first away match

Belgium beat a youthful United States team 1-0 in an international friendly on Tuesday in new coach Jurgen Klinsmann's first away match.
Nicholas Lombaerts' half volley in the 55th minute settled a match which the Belgians dominated throughout, while the U.S. rarely threatened.
Klinsmann was looking for his first win in the friendly, following a draw at home against Mexico and a loss to Costa Rica.
He has limited time left to assemble the players who will play in the World Cup qualifiers which start next June.
Meanwhile, Belgium's chances of qualifying for next year's European Championship receded after it drew against Azerbaijan on Friday.
