U.S. Blow Another Late Lead in 3-2 Loss
Same old story for the Americans as they saw leads of 1-0 and 2-1 slip away and eventually surrendered a stoppage time winner to Nicklas Bendtner in a 3-2 loss to Denmark. Bendtner, a long-time Arsenal striker who now plays for VfL Wolfsburg, scored all three of Denmark's goals, the final two coming after the 80th minute. This marked the third time since the World Cup that the U.S. surrendered at least three goals, and the second time in 2015. On the bright side for the U.S., Jozy Altidore continued his recent inspired play with a goal and an assist, while Aron Johannsson also contributed a goal. Additionally, Mexican-American defender Ventura Alvarado earned his first CAP with the Senior National Team. The U.S. concludes this road trip on Tuesday against Switzerland.
