The United States of America's football team does not have a pretty memory of their last clash with Denmark, as the European nation defeated the US three goals to one at NRGI Park, Denmark.

But, that is a thing of the past, as the game was played some six years ago at the same venue. This time around, they would be eager to finish the game on the winning side.

Things have not started on a good note for the US team, as they received a major blow with captain, Clint Dempsey being ruled out for today's game against Denmark as well as Switzerland's match, which has been scheduled for next week.

The star player suffered a right hamstring injury during training, but the US team are not going in for any replacement.

Club America defender Ventura Alvarado and Club Leon goalkeeper William Yarbrough are the new faces in the US squad.

The team comprises of many players based out of US and their manager, Jurgen Klinsman considers it to be a great opportunity to have a look at these players as well.

"We have a very competitive roster," Goal quoted Klinsmann as saying. "It's a great opportunity to look at our many players based in Europe and Mexico while the MLS players are still getting into a rhythm.

"We are here to challenge ourselves against two strong opponents, and at the end of the day we also want to get results," he added.

The US could take advantage of the uncomfortable situation between players' union and the Danish Football Association over pay, but things are said to have settled now. Hence, Morten Olsen wants to concentrate on football now.

"We applaud you all and look forward to being able to concentrate on what it is really about – to play and talk football and not conflict and money," coach Morten Olsen said.

"I'm sure that the players feel the same way, and believe that they are very satisfied and quite like everyone else are looking forward to being able to concentrate 100 per cent on playing football again," added Olsen

Despite their situation, the Danes have lookd good in Euro 2016 qualifying stages and would be motivated to come up with a good performance against the US side, though it might just be a international friendly fixture.

But, the European side would miss the services of Daniel Agger and Anders Bjelland due to injury, while fans would expect Niklas Bendtner's name on the score-sheet, who has been one decent form for the national side.
