U.S. Men Due to Wrap Up 2009 Schedule in Aarhus, Denmark, on Wednesday


FARVEL, 2009: The United States Men’s National Team will close out an impressive 2009 schedule when they face fellow 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers Denmark on Wednesday, Nov. 18, in Aarhus, Denmark. Kickoff at NRGi Park is set for 8:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. ET), and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN Classic at 2:25 p.m. ET, before being simulcast on ESPN2 following the completion of the Greece-Ukraine World Cup qualifying playoff.  Fans can also follow the match live via ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and at www.twitter.com/ussoccer. The U.S. and Denmark have met five times in their history – never 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.

ELITE GROUP: Twenty-six teams have qualified for the FIFA World Cup, with four teams earning bids during their games on Saturday. New Zealand qualified for its first World Cup in 28 years by virtue of its playoff win against Bahrain. In Africa, Cameroon and Nigeria joined the list of teams who will have the chance to play in the first-ever World Cup on their own continent. Here is a look at who else has booked their ticket to South Africa and the confederation they're coming from:

Host Country: South Africa
AFC – Asia (43 teams, 4.5 berths): Australia, Japan, Korea DPR, Korea Republic
CAF – Africa (53 teams, 5 berths): Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria
CONCACAF – North America, Central America, Caribbean (35 teams, 3.5 berths): Honduras, Mexico, USA
CONMEBOL – South America (10 teams, 4.5 berths): Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay
OFC (10 teams, .5 berths) – New Zealand
UEFA – Europe (53 teams, 13 berths): Denmark, England, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland

Of these teams, only the USA, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Italy, Spain and Korea Republic have participated in all six World Cups since 1990.

QUICK HITS

  • The U.S. traveled with 22 players to Denmark, making three changes to the roster from the Slovakia match.
  • Houston Dynamo midfielders Ricardo Clark and Stuart Holden joined the squad after their side’s overtime loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS Western Conference final. Tigres defender Edgar Castillo is making his first appearance in a national team camp.
  • Chad Marshall, Steve Cherundolo and Clint Dempsey were released back to their clubs this past Sunday.
  • Denmark will debut their new home uniforms for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The U.S. will once again wear the all-anthracite strip.
  • Overall, the U.S. holds a 13-7-3 record this year.
  • The 1-0 defeat against Slovakia marked only the third time in 23 matches this year that the U.S. has been held scoreless.
  • NRGi Park is the club home for midfielder Benny Feilhaber, who plies his trade for AFG Aarhus.  Feilhaber has been a regular in the first XI, starting 13 of 15 matches since the end of July.
  • Five U.S. players were on the field the last time the USA and Denmark met: Jonathan Bornstein (1), Clark, Jimmy Conrad (c), Eddie Johnson and Heath Pearce.
  • Frankie Hejduk is the leading capwinner on the roster with 84 appearances. 
  • With his appearance against Slovakia, midfielder Dax McCarty became the 11th player to earn his first cap in 2009. Overall, Bradley has given 40 players their debut appearance since taking charge in 2007.
  • By entering as a substitute against Slovakia, 2009 MLS Golden Boot winner Jeff Cunningham got his first minutes with the full team since the 0-0 draw against Guatemala on Sept. 7, 2005, in Guatemala City.
  • In total, 17 players on the roster competed in the USA’s successful campaign to qualify for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Nine of those participated in the 3-2 victory against Honduras on Oct. 10 in San Pedro Sula that clinched the team’s berth in South Africa: Jozy Altidore, Carlos Bocanegra (capt.), Bornstein, Michael Bradley, Conor Casey, Clark, Feilhaber, Holden and Jonathan Spector.
  • In that game, Casey scored his first two international goals in his 15th appearance for the United States, earning Man of the Match honors.
  • Altidore leads all U.S. scorers in 2009, including a hat trick against Trinidad & Tobago and the game-winner against then No. 1-ranked Spain that vaulted the U.S. into the Confederations Cup final against Brazil.
  • Bradley has earned four ussoccer.com Man of the Match honors this year, starting with a two-goal performance that gave the U.S. a 2-0 win against Mexico to open the final round of qualifying.

  • Six of the nine defenders on the roster have at least one goal for the national team: Bocanegra, Bornstein, Cherundolo, Conrad, Goodson, Hejduk. Four of those tallied in 2009, and all of them memorable: Hejduk’s game-tying goal in El Salvador; Bocanegra’s game-winning header against Honduras in Chicago; Goodson performing the same feat against the same team in the same stadium in the Gold Cup; and Bornstein capping off qualifying with a last-second header against Costa Rica.
  • In the 10 months prior to a FIFA World Cup, the U.S. has played 19 friendly matches away from home all-time, including three on neutral soil. The U.S. is 5-12-2 in those matches.
  • Of the 19 aforementioned matches, 15 have been played on European soil with the U.S. posting a 4-10-1 record. Those games included meetings with Italy, Germany and Ireland in 2002, and Poland and Germany in 2005.

WORLD CUP PREP: Following last Saturday's games, there are only two international fixture dates between now and the selection of the FIFA World Cup rosters: Nov. 18, 2009 and March 3, 2010. As such, the two matches during this international break present invaluable opportunities for players to state their cases for inclusion in the 23-man group that will head to South Africa, as well as continue to hone the work done during the past three years. With games against Slovakia and Denmark, the U.S. is one of only five teams – including Denmark, Korea Republic, Netherlands and Paraguay – that will have the opportunity to face two 2010 World Cup finalists on the last two international fixture dates of the year. Germany was to play two matches as well, but canceled their game against Chile following the death of German international and Hannover-based goalkeeper Robert Enke.

GAME NO. 24 ON THE WORLD TOUR: Wednesday's match is the 24th international for the U.S. in 2009, which represents the third-most games ever in a single year.  The record of 34 games played was set in 1993, when the U.S. men were in residency in California preparing for the 1994 FIFA World Cup. The team played 21 games in official competition, which is  the most ever in a calendar year (the previous record was 16 in 2005). The U.S. holds a record of 13-7-3, scoring 42 goals, surrendering 33, and earning eight shutouts with three different goalkeepers. There have been four games against teams in the top 10 in the world (Spain, Brazil twice, and Italy), the first erasure of a two-goal deficit to earn at least a point in 13 years (against El Salvador in March), two come-from-behind wins at home (against Honduras and El Salvador), and consecutive appearances in international tournament finals (FIFA Confederations Cup and CONCACAF Gold Cup).

SPREADING THE WEALTH: In the 23 matches played so far this year, the U.S. has given 53 different players at least one appearance.  Additionally, Bradley deployed the same starting XI only twice – in the semifinal and final of the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

CHAMPIONS AGAIN: The U.S. Men's National Team finished atop the FIFA World Cup qualifying Final Round standings in CONCACAF for the second consecutive cycle, besting Mexico by one point at the summit of the Hexagonal. Jonathan Bornstein's stoppage-time goal with only seconds remaining leveled the score with Costa Rica on Oct. 14 in Washington, D.C., the 2-2 draw giving the USA the vital point it needed. The result at RFK Stadium, coupled with Mexico's draw by the same score with Trinidad & Tobago in Port of Spain, kept the U.S. first with El Tri second. The late drama in the nation's capital served to shake up third and fourth spot in the standings as well, with Honduras the beneficiary. Los Catrachos won on the road in El Salvador (the first time in the final round the visitors won in San Salvador) and leapfrogged Costa Rica to claim the third and final automatic berth to the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

* qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup

CONCACAF UPDATE: Costa Rica suffered a setback in the first leg of their FIFA World Cup playoff with Uruguay, losing 1-0 to the South Americans at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa. Los Ticos have it all to do in the second leg in Montevideo, and they will have to overturn the one goal deficit to have a chance at booking a place in South Africa. Honduras has been active during this international break as they prepare for their first World Cup in 28 years. Los Catrachos beat Latvia 2-1 in an international friendly in Tegucigalpa on Nov. 14, and the Central Americans now travel to Miami to face off with Peru. Mexico, the other team to have qualified for the World Cup from CONCACAF, is inactive during the international break. 

HAT TRICKERS: Olympians Sacha Kljestan and Jozy Altidore shared another bond this year, both recording hat tricks.  Kljestan’s trio in the 3-2 win against Sweden marked the 11th three goal performance in U.S. history, and put him in unique company as only the second player ever to open his national team scoring account with a hat trick. The only other player to pull off the feat was Aldo “Buff” Donelli, who tallied four goals in a 4-2 victory against Mexico on May 24, 1934, in the lone qualifying match for the 1934 FIFA World Cup in Italy. Altidore became the youngest player in history to score a hat trick for the U.S. Men’s National Team when he tallied all three goals in the 3-0 qualifying win against Trinidad & Tobago on April 1 in Nashville.  Assisted by Donovan on all three, the then 19-year-old forward scored in consecutive games for the first time in his career after netting the USA’s first goal against El Salvador three days before. It also marked the first time that the U.S. has produced multiple goal scorers in three consecutive home matches, with Kljestan notching a hat trick in the 3-2 win against Sweden on Jan. 24, 2009, and Michael Bradley scoring a brace in the 2-0 win against Mexico on Feb. 11 in Columbus.

INTO THE NEXT 50: Since January of 2007 it has been the charge of U.S. head coach Bob Bradley to achieve the most important goal of any soccer playing nation: qualification for the FIFA World Cup. With 55 games under his belt, seeing 87 different players at least once and the process of reaching South Africa in 2010 complete, a review of the body of work during the past nearly-three years points to the U.S. clearly heading in the right direction. Bradley’s 31 victories in 50 games outdistanced his predecessor Bruce Arena, who had collected 25 victories at that point in his tenure.  Since the start of the four-year cycle, the U.S. has:

  • Produced the best finish ever at a FIFA tournament, finishing second at the FIFA Confederations Cup.
  • Finished in first place in CONCACAF qualifying, collecting the most road wins of any team in the region during the campaign while going unbeaten at home in nine matches.
  • Won six straight FIFA World Cup qualifiers in a row in 2008, a new team record (June 15-Oct. 15).
  • Won the CONCACAF Gold Cup title in 2007 to qualify for the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.
  • Won by the largest margin of victory in U.S. World Cup qualifying history (8-0 vs. Barbados on June 15, 2008).
  • Won three straight matches on the road for the first time in team history (Oct. 17, 2007 @ Switzerland, Nov. 17, 2007 @ South Africa and March 26, 2008 @ Poland).
  • Played seven matches against four teams ranked in the top five in the world at the time they stepped on the field against them (Argentina, Brazil-3, Italy, Spain-2).
  • Played matches on four continents.
  • Posted 1-1-1 record against No. 1-ranked teams, including a semifinal upset of Spain at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

THE 11TH MONTH : The U.S. has played 44 times in the month of November, posting a 20-11-13 record (with a 7-10-8 mark away from home). The most famous November result for the U.S. came on the 19th day of the month in 1989, when Paul Caligiuri struck in a 1-0 win at Trinidad & Tobago that qualified the U.S. for Italy 1990, the first FIFA World Cup appearance for the U.S. in 40 years.

TWENTY FIND THE NET: Jonathan Bornstein, whose goal against Costa Rica continued the record-setting trend in 2009, became the 20th different U.S. player to tally this year. Conor Casey's double salvo on Oct. 10 made him the 19th different player, beating the previous record of 18 set by the U.S. team in 1993 and matched in 2000. In addition, eight players opened their international scoring account in 2009, the second-most in history for the U.S., with nine players scoring their first career goals in 1993. Here's a look at all the players who have found the net so far this year:

BACK AT THE WORLD CUP: The Danes return to the FIFA World Cup in 2010 after an eight-year absence from the World's biggest tournament. Denmark advanced to the quarterfinals in 1998 and made it to the second round in 2002, but was absent from the 2006 World Cup held by neighboring Germany. Morten Olsen's team navigated a difficult Group 1 in UEFA World Cup qualifying, finishing in first place ahead of Portugal and massive rival Sweden to assure themselves of an automatic place in South Africa next summer. The Danes' biggest victories came in Lisbon, when injury time goals from Christian Poulssen and Daniel Jensen gave them a shock 3-2 win against Portugal, and against Sweden in Copenhagen when a 1-0 win clinched a berth in the World Cup.

BRIEF HISTORY: Denmark has one of the oldest federations in Europe but it took the national team until 1986 to qualify for its first World Cup. Since then, however, the Danes have established themselves as one of the most consistent performers on the continent, with the 1992 European Championship the crowning achievement for the Scandinavian nation. Denmark has advanced out of the first round in all three World Cups in which they have taken part. In 1986 and 2002 Denmark made it to the Round of 16. At France '98, Bo Johansson's side defeated Nigeria before falling 3-2 to Brazil in a memorable quarterfinal match in Nantes.

CALLING 'EM IN: Similar to the United States, Denmark's roster features a mixture of players who feature in the domestic league and players who are earning their wages on the books of clubs across Europe. Goalkeeper Thomas Sørensen and defender Lars Jacobsen were regular contributers to a backline which allowed a scant five goals over ten games in World Cup qualifying. Midfielder Christian Poulsen is the engine in the midfield, and he lead the team in minutes played (882) while featuring in every game for the Danes. Other contributers Dennis Rommedahl and Nicklas Bendtner are absent through injury, but Denmark maintains a veteran presence with forwards Jesper Grønkjaer, Martin Jørgensen and Jon Dahl Tomasson. All three are World Cup veterans, with Jørgensen featuring in five games during the 1998 tournament. Jakob Poulsen and Michael Lumb are teammates of Benny Feilhaber's at Aarhus and will look to contribute to their team's effort in front of their home crowd at NRGi Park.

Denmark Roster by Position
GOALKEEPERS (2): Stephan Andersen (Brøndby IF), Thomas Sørensen (Stoke City)
DEFENDERS (7): Anders Möller Christensen (Odense), Lars Jacobsen (Blackburn Rovers), Leon Jessen (FC Midtjylland), William Kvist Jorgensen (FC Copenhagen), Simon Kjær (Palermo), Per Krøldrup (Fiorentina),  Michael Lumb (AGF Aarhus)
MIDFIELDERS (6):  Thomas Enevoldsen (FC Groningen), Daniel Jensen (Werder Bremen), Thomas Kahlenberg (Wolfsburg), Christian Poulsen (Juventus FC), Jakob Poulsen (AGF Aarhus), Søren Rieks (Esbjerg)
