Denmark ready for U.S. in Aarhus

AARHUS, Denmark -- Both the United States and Denmark will be without several regular players when they face each other Wednesday in an exhibition.

United States coach Bob Bradley called up midfielders Ricardo Clark and Stuart Holden, and defender Edgar Castillo to replace Clint Dempsey, Chad Marshall and Steve Cherundolo, who were sent back home after Saturday's 1-0 loss to Slovakia.

The Americans are also missing Landon Donovan, who is still in the MLS playoffs with the Los Angeles Galaxy. The Galaxy face Real Salt Lake in the MLS Cup on Sunday at Seattle.

Denmark captain Jon Dahl Tomasson, who skipped Saturday's match against South Korea, is still out with a sore thigh. Other injured players include Dennis Rommedahl, Daniel Agger, Soren Larsen and Nicklas Bendtner.

The Danes were held to a scoreless draw on Saturday against South Korea, but defender Simon Kjaer is hoping his team will do better against the Americans. Both teams have already qualified for the World Cup.

"Hopefully we can play better on this turf," said Kjaer about NRGi Park in Aarhus. "I can feel it in my legs that the it was a tough game [against the South Koreans]."

Forward Morten Rasmussen is hoping to get another chance to impress Denmark coach Morten Olsen before next year's World Cup in South Africa.

"The World Cup is of course a dream for all players, including me," the 25-year-old Brondby striker said.

Denmark and the United States have met five times with each team winning once. The other three matches ended in draws.

Veteran Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen is confident his team can win another against the Confederations Cup finalists.

"If we're in a good shape and have all men at hand, I believe we can beat everyone," Sorensen said.
