NEW YORK CITY — Despite losing to Germany last week, the U.S. made it out of the "Group of Death" in the World Cup and onto the final 16.

The Yanks now have to defeat Belgium, the European "dark horse" favorite to win the tournament, to advance to the round of 8.

The last time the two sides met in a friendly match up in 2013, the Belgians beat Team USA 4-2.

New York City has plenty of spots to watch the 4:00 p.m. match, and with elimination on the line, the crowds should be in full force.

If you plan to call out sick or try to sneak out of work early, here's the best spots to watch the game in every borough:

BROOKLYN

Under the Archway, DUMBO
Anchorage Place and Water Street, under the Manhattan Bridge

Like the previous matches, the DUMBO Business Improvement District hosts a huge viewing party under the Manhattan Bridge for every game. ESPN cameras and photographers usually catch the fan reactions at the party, so avoid it if you're camera shy.
