National Soccer team of U.S. loses in Denmark
The match between the two World Cup qualifiers looked to be in favor of an american victory, but got turned around in the second half.
There was kickoff at NRGi Park in Aarhus at 8:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. ET), starting the friendly game between the two World Cup Qualifiers.
The U.S. and Denmark have met five times in their history – never before on Danish soil – and the teams have split the spoils with an even 1-1-3 record.
In the teams’ last meeting on Jan. 20, 2007, at The Home Depot Center, Jonathan Bornstein scored in his national team debut, netting the game-winner in helping the U.S. to a 3-1 victory. The match was also the first under Bradley, beginning his record-setting run of becoming the first coach in U.S. history to win his first three games in charge.
Result after full play time: 3-1 to Denmark
I the first half of the game, the americans succeeded to score a goal and hold it for the half time. But when the players returned to the soccer field in the second half of the game, the danish national team turned the game around by quickly scoring three goals in the first 10 minutes.
The game then slowed down a bit while both teams became hesitant in their play. A few good chances followed in the remaining play time, but Denmark kept their goal clean for the whole second half, and the final result for the game was 3-1.
