Sounders FC’s Eddie Johnson, Brad Evans get time in USMNT’s 4-2 loss to Belgium

*     *     *

Sounders FC’s Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans both saw time in the U.S. men’s national team’s 4-2 loss to Belgium on Wednesday.

Johnson came on at halftime for Jozy Altidore and earned the penalty kick converted by Clint Dempsey (as seen above). By most accounts, EJ one of the better U.S. players on the night — check out the player ratings from MLSsoccer.com, Soccer By Ives, SI.com and ESPN.com.

Evans came on in the 69th minute for Graham Zusi and played mostly on the right wing. He nearly finished a cross from Johnson late in the game.

In some other notes from the game, DaMarcus Beasley earned his 100th cap for the U.S. (the 13th American to do so) and Stuart Holden returned for his first USMNT game since Oct. 12, 2010. Dempsey’s goal was his 33rd, one behind Eric Wynalda for second in federation history.

The U.S. hosts Germany in a friendly Sunday leading into a trio of World Cup qualifiers.
