One of the nteresting match up's in the friendlies will be the USA's visit to Denmark to take on a young Danish team trying to establish themselves as one of the emerging sides in Europe. Morten Olson has a very young side and his team is built around Tottenham Hotspur's midfield ace Christian Eriksen. With former arsenal striker Nicholas Bendtner up front and former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger at the back there is a good mixture of experience and youth (Agger however has been ruled out of this game through injury) . Eriksen is the key man for Denmark his creativity in midfield will be an essential part of Denmark's qualifying efforts, it will be interesting watching him against America's more experienced midfield.
The USA come into this game with probably their strongest squad since the World Cup. Former Fulham and Tottenham striker Clint Dempsey is the fulcrum of America's midfield/attack and he will play just behind Jose Altidore the Toronto striker who is refinding his form in the MLS. Jurgen Klinsman will be looking for players to be laying claim for a squad place for this summers Concaf Gold Cup. Bradley will be the midfield engine and his return to the MLS was seen as a big coup for Toronto, he has proven to be a tremendous success and with a relatively inexperienced back six in the squad for this game Bradley will be used somewhat as a shield for the back four.
Both of these sides have generally young teams and are seen as two emerging sides in their respective continents although America are a good bit ahead of Denmark in terms of qualification for major tournaments. I think both teams should find the net here in what could be a compeling game as far as International friendlies go. Not a huge play here but going to take both teams to score. Again betting on the draw in International friendlies can be a profitable play but I like the both teams to score more here.
