Denmark   Denmark: The opening foe for the United States. Gitte Krogh is a top striker, paired with Lene Jensen. Mikka Hansen (formerly of Santa Clara) starts at midfield, where Christina Petersen is a veteran hand. Lene Terp is an outstanding central defender, very fast and skillful. Goalkeeper Dorthe Larsen is recovering from her second broken arm in as many years. Missing from the roster are former mainstays Birgit Christensen on defense and Anne Nielsen at midfield. Danes recently lost matches to Sweden, 4-0, and Germany, 3-1. Chances: Not a lock to make quarterfinals.
