The U.S. Men’s Soccer Team is less than 24 hours away from their World Cup knockout rounds clash with Belgium.

Seattle Sounders Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin could play key roles in Tuesday’s game. One person who’ll be watching is Yedlin’s mom.

“I still think of him as DeAndre my son, not DeAndre the soccer player,” said Rebecca Yedlin, DeAndre Yedlin’s mother. “I'm most proud of the fact he's kept himself humble, so down to earth.”

Rebecca says her heart has dropped a couple of times watching her son compete in the World Cup. She'll be watching again Tuesday on television at 1 p.m. our time.
