USA will take on Belgium tonight at 4pm ET in the second round of the World Cup, and former Heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has a message for them in the build-up.
The American side has surprised many in Brazil after securing passage from a tough group that included Germany, Portugal and Ghana. Late Tuesday afternoon they will try and make it to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2002, and Mike Tyson has given a rousing speech to inspire them.
Chocolate where the sun don't shine
"Listen up USA. Everybody thinks they're going to walk over us, but they not and we're going to surprise them. We're going to get the Belgium's butt right.
"After today's game we're going to take those Belgium guys and get a bunch of chocolate and stuff it up their a**. USA, USA, USA.
It seems that USA believe everyone is against them these days. Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann even suggested that the referee for the Belgium game is not the right pick because he might be biased against the US.
Jurgen Klinsmann didn't claim that the referee would deliberately be against the US, but he has suggested that the fact he can speak French to the players on the Belgium side gives USA's opponents an unfair advantage.
Mike Tyson has echoed those views in the build-up, saying the US should be waring of the referee in a bizarre speech. "You gotta be careful because the officials have been giving some bad calls, they're giving horrible calls,' he rants in the video below. You know they're gonna try and screw the Americans any chance they have."
Jurgen is a crazy as Tyson
Mike Tyson's crazy attempt at a rousing and inspirational speech is probably only just as crazy as Jurgen Klinsmann's paranoid press conference this week. Here are his insane comments ahead of the game tonight.
"Is it a good feeling? No, because Algeria came from same group as Belgium and he speaks French like their players. He will be able to speak to their players and not to us.
"It is also the same country we beat in the last second at the last World Cup, but it is what it is."
