Kevin Mirallas intends to use his knowledge of Everton teammate Tim Howard to his advantage ahead of Belgium's World Cup clash with USA on Tuesday.

Kevin Mirallas has revealed that he is hoping to use his knowledge of Everton teammate Tim Howard to good effect when Belgium take on USA in the second round of the World Cup on Tuesday.

Both nations square off in Fortaleza next week knowing that victory will see their respective teams progress to the quarter-finals of the tournament.

Considering what is at stake, Mirallas says that he will put friendship to one side and exploit Howard's weaknesses in a bid to help Belgium book a last-eight spot.

"Me and Tim have a good relationship," he told reporters at a press conference.

"We've known each other for two years and he is a great guy. I will call him and talk with him a bit about Tuesday's match and we will just laugh.

"With Tim, I know his qualities but I also know his weaknesses. I hope that will benefit my team."

Tuesday's clash kicks off at 9pm.
