The Belgian national soccer team has cancelled a closed doors scrimmage with the United States due to coach Mark Wilmots concern about traffic in the São Paulo area where the event was to take place, according to Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated.

The US national team has been training for the tournament at the facilities of Brazilian club team São Paulo FC and announced that the team added another training session on Thursday to make up for the lost work with Belgium.

Belgium begins their World Cup campaign on Tuesday, June 17 against Algeria, while the Americans are preparing for their opening match against Ghana on Monday, June 16.
