Two European sides that the United States faced in friendlies during the last eight months get their World Cup runs started, as the Netherlands and Denmark square off in a Group E showdown at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg (7:30 a.m., ESPN/ESPN3.com).
The Dutch will be without star winger Arjen Robben, who suffered a hamstring injury in a friendly against Hungary about a week ago. The Oranje will turn even more to Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder to be the pointman for the squad's potent attack.
Denmark, which impressed during World Cup qualifying, is buoyed by the news that Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner will be starting. He was initially expected to miss the match with a groin injury.
