US beat Denmark 3-1 in Bradley´s debut as coach

21 January 2007 02:09

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The United States, with goals from Landon Donovan, Jonathan Bornstein and Kenny Cooper, defeated Denmark 3-1 in an international friendly that marked Bob Bradley´s debut as head coach.

Bradley was put in charge of the squad last month after talks broke down with German World Cup coach Jurgen Klinsmann, giving the 48-year-old American a chance to audition for the job, likely to be filled by the end of May.

US officials emphasized they were still interested in coaches of top global squads who wouldn´t be available until the completion of league seasons but could arrive before US men play in the Gold Cup and Copa America in June.

Donovan´s penalty in the 44th minute saw the Americans level at the interval after Dennis Sorensen had put Denmark ahead in the 37th minute.

Bornstein added a second goal in the 57th minute, and Cooper made it 3-1 in the 80th.

Although the United States created more quality opportunities in the first half, Danish keeper Matt Reiss was able to keep them at bay and give them the chance to go ahead when Sorensen blasted home a pass from Simon Busk Poulson.

When US youngster Ricardo Clark was brought down just inside the penalty area in the 43rd minute, Donovan took the opportunity to equalize from the penalty spot.

Another young American, Justin Mapp, came on after halftime for Nate Jaqua and quickly made an impact, using his speed to get past the Danish defence and delivering the ball to Bornstein, who scored his first goal for the national team in his first appearance.

Cooper, a second-half substitute, also scored in his USA debut.

The United States play another friendly on February 7, when they host regional rivals Mexico in Phoenix. That match will mark the debut of Hugo Sanchez at the helm of Mexico.
