Update (4:54 p.m. ET)
Belgium dropped their Group E opener to Italy, 2-0, on goals by Emanuele Giaccherini (32') and Graziano Pellè (90'). Ciman played 76 minutes before Yannick Carrasco replaced him, logging 1 tackle, 5 clearances, 1 blocks and 6 ball recoveries in Belgium's 1st Euro appearance since 2000.
A familiar, yet somehow unfamiliar sight for MLS fans as the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament opens group play: Reigning MLS Defender of the Year Laurent Ciman (Montreal Impact) is in the starting lineup for Belgium – but at right back, as opposed to his usual spot in central defense.
Belgium lineup: Courtois; Ciman, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Vertonghen; Witsel, Nainggolan; De Bruyne, Fellaini, Hazard; Lukaku. #Euro2016— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) June 13, 2016
