Mike Bradley started a game as U.S. captain for the first time in Wednesday night’s exhibition game against Denmark in Aarhus.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann changed seven starters from last month’s 2-0 win over Panama, keeping only goalkeeper Nick Rimando, Bradley and Gyasi Zardes in the midfield, and Jozy Altidore at forward.

Klinsmann changed his entire back line, starting Timmy Chandler on the right, Michael Orozco and John Brooks in the center and Greg Garza on the left. Alejandro Bedoya and Fabian Johnson also were in the midfield of a 4-4-2 formation, and Aron Johansson was up front.

The U.S. was missing regular captain Clint Dempsey and defender Jermaine Jones because of injuries, and Klinsmann bypassed No. 1 goalkeeper Brad Guzan and defenders Matt Besler, Geoff Cameron and Omar Gonzalez.

The Americans also play Switzerland on Tuesday in Zurich.
