MNT head coach JURGEN KLINSMANN:
On tonight’s game:
“I think overall this was a very even and entertaining game. I think we gave them an eye-to-eye game and we could have won it, but we didn’t. We saw a lot of good things that we wanted to see on our end. Obviously, we’ve got to correct a couple things because we conceded three goals, and overall it’s just a little bit frustrating when you lose in the last minute.”
On what he liked and disliked from tonight’s game:
“Obviously, what you don’t like is late goals. Maybe it’s just losing focus for a second, losing your mark or because of heavy legs getting tired a little bit. You never want to give a game away that you’re up 2-1. I think a tie probably would have been a fair result, but as I said a lot of positives. I think the backline overall did a very good job. From the left to the right, they were all on top of things as much as they could be. I think Michael Bradley was present in the midfield trying to organize a lot. You’re always happy for your strikers when they score. You hope then for a third one if there’s an opportunity and we had it with John Brooks’ header in the last second. There’s a lot of good stuff taken away from this game, definitely. We have to step it up in terms of managing the game all 90 minutes. You lead in Denmark 2-1? Get the job done and go home with three points. At least tie it. That’s all the stuff to improve, but overall we did a lot of good stuff.”
On the struggle to maintain possession in the first half and how they planned to fix it at half:
“We knew that Denmark is a very good possession-oriented team. That’s part of their style that Morten Olsen developed over many, many years here, and they do it really well with their technical capabilities. They move off of the ball really well. So what we had problems with the first half was to get pressure on the ball, to get closer to them in midfield and shut them down in terms of their passing lanes and the space that they find. I think it was a little bit better in the second half. We got closer to them. We denied them those little passes between the lines and that’s stuff we’re going to have to deal with and do better.”
On bringing in Ventura Alvarado for his first cap in place of Michael Orozco:
“Michael Orozco was giving us a signal that he was just simply exhausted and that led to Ventura’s first cap, which was something special for him.”
On Denmark’s captain and playmaker Christian Eriksen:
“I said yesterday to the media here that he obviously is a huge talent. He’s fun to watch and at a young age already taking over so much responsibility on the field, leading his team and keeping the rhythm going. It’s really fun to watch him, so it will be interesting to see how he continues his career.”
On Nicklas Bendtner’s performance:
“If you make three goals then you get all the compliments in the world, and he deserves them for that performance absolutely.”
MNT forward ARON JOHANNSSON
On his goal:
“Michael Bradley played Jozy [Altidore] a fantastic ball in the box, and Jozy showed he’s a very good team player; he played it to me, and I was the one against an open goal.”
On his return to Aarhus, where he played professionally for AGF Aarhus:
“It was amazing. It was a great experience to come back to the stadium where my career kicked off. It was good to be back, but on the other hand we lost the game, so I’m pretty disappointed right now. I felt like we could’ve gotten something from the game so this is pretty disappointing.”
On what to take moving forward to the Switzerland game next Tuesday:
“Obviously today we had a lot of positives, and now we have to look at those positives and learn from them and make sure that we’re winning games in the final period of the game and make sure that we don’t lose games in the last couple of minutes.”
On the warm reception he received from the Denmark crowd:
“Obviously it’s great for me that they still know my name back here and they still cheer for me. It’s a great city and I’m very happy to be back, but on the other hand, the result kind of killed it.”
MNT forward JOZY ALTIDORE
On scoring his goal:
“It was a great ball from Timmy [Chandler]. It looked like the defenders were confused a little bit, and I just tried to kind of stay with the play. Then, I tried to hit it first time and get it on target and it went in.”
On losing a game where the team twice had the lead:
“Yeah it’s annoying because it seems to be a trend over the last five or six games and it’s just not good enough at this level. Too many lapses at critical points in the game, and maybe it’s a little bit of lack of experience as well, but it’s something we’ll have to cut out getting closer now to a competition in the Gold Cup. We need to get better.”
On the cold, damp playing conditions:
“Yeah it was weird, it was a cold one. It was a typical spring day; it was cold and wet. But look, everybody at this level has experienced extreme temperature, so it’s no excuse.”
On preparing for Switzerland:
“Switzerland’s another tough game. It’s another good opponent. It’s another opportunity for us to work on things, but we have to take these chances seriously now, because there’s not many left until we start a competition and that’s where it counts.”
MNT midfielder MICHAEL BRADLEY
On playing his first game as captain:
“It was a tremendous honor. Obviously Clint’s [Dempsey] the captain and he’s done an incredible job, but for me to have the opportunity to be captain on the night that he’s not here was very special and not something that I’ll soon forget. Growing up you dream for these kind of nights, so it was very special.”
On the frustration of losing another game late:
“It’s very frustrating. We knew it was going to be a difficult night with the conditions; the field’s not great, it’s wet, windy, and we knew it was going to be a game where more balls were going to get played forward and it was going to be about moving our lines and getting to second balls. I thought we handled things for the most part pretty well, but if you don’t see the game out, if you don’t take care of things in the last few minutes then you’re not going to ever get what you deserve. I think the frustrating thing is that it’s not the first time that that’s happened to us, where we’ve not been able to see a game out and we’ve got to start to learn our lesson.”
On preparing for Switzerland:
“There’s no time to feel sorry for ourselves. We’ll get back to Zurich tomorrow and physically start to recover and get ourselves mentally right. Obviously it’s another big chance to step on the field against a good team.”
MNT defender VENTURA ALVARADO
On earning his first cap:
“I’m real happy and proud to be here and motivated to keep working and getting more minutes. I’m going to remember this, and it’s going to be a good memory. We lost, but it’s alright, we just need to keep working.”
AARHUS, Denmark (March 25, 2015) – Jozy Altidore tallied his 27th goal for the U.S. Men’s National Team and added an assist on Aron Johannsson’s third career tally, but it was not enough to offset Nicklas Bendtner’s hat trick in a 3-2 loss to Denmark on Wednesday at NRGi Park.
The USA now returns to Zurich, where it will continue training camp ahead of next week’s match against Switzerland. The U.S. MNT will play its second consecutive road match in Europe on March 31 at 12 p.m. ET live on Fox Sports 1, UniMás and UDN.
The USA twice took the lead in each half first through Altidore and then Johannsson. Denmark responded on each occasion through Bendtner, who eventually scored the game winner in the 91st minute.
The USA had a chance to equalize in the game’s final moments when midfielder Michael Bradley whipped a beautiful cross into the box, but John Brooks guided his header just wide in the last action of the match.
Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Jozy Altidore (Timmy Chandler), 19th minute: Timmy Chandler played a one-two passing combination with Altidore, launching the ball to the far post from the right side.

DEN – Nicklas Bendtner (Lasse Vibe), 33rd minute: After a long build up, the ball ended up with Denmark’s Daniel Wass. He flashed a cross toward Rimando, where it was backheeled by Lass Vibe into the path of Bendtner, who easily tapped it home from close range. USA 1, DEN 1 (SEE GOAL)
USA – Aron Johannsson (Jozy Altidore), 66th minute: Michael Bradley dropped an exquisite long ball into the Denmark box to a streaking Altidore.

USA 2, DEN 1 (SEE GOAL)
DEN – Nicklas Bendtner, 83rd minute: A chip from Martin Braithwaite on the left side was deflected and looped toward the far post of the U.S. goal.

USA 2 DEN 2 (SEE GOAL)
DEN – Nicklas Bendtner (Christian Eriksen), 90+1 minute: A Nick Rimando goal kick was allowed to bounce around the midfield stripe and Denmark won the second ball, moving it to Eriksen wide in the left channel.

USA 2, DEN 3 (SEE GOAL) FINAL
Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
USA – Nick Rimando (Save) 16th minute: Denmark curled in a cross from the left channel to the far post which just skipped by striker Nicklas Bendtner, before Rimando turned it around the post with a diving save.
USA – Nick Rimando & Michael Orozco (Save), 48th minute: A defensive mix-up led to an opening for Denmark’s Christian Eriksen, who snapped a wide open shot from the right side, which Rimando expertly beat away.
