Another heavy loss mars Miller's debut

[CANADA-DENMARK] Canada tuned up for its game against the USA Tuesday in Houston (TV: ESPN2, WatchESPN, Univision Deportes, 9 p.m. ET) with its first game of 2013, a friendly against Denmark in Tucson, Ariz. But it ended like its last game of 2012 with a heavy defeat. Canada, which was knocked out of the 2014 World Cup when it lost to Honduras 8-1 in October, fell behind to Denmark, 3-0, after 33 minutes and lost, 4-0, in Colin Miller's debut as interim coach.

Andreas Cornelius, a 19-year-old forward for FC Copenhagen, had a hat trick and FC Nordsjaelland's Kasper Lorentzen added the fourth goal for Denmark, which was missing its foreign-based players.

Canada was led by 2011 MLS MVP Dwayne De Rosario, but it was a largely experimental team of young players based in MLS and Scandinavia that Miller threw out at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Among the six players to earn their first cap was Kyle Bekker, taken by Toronto FC out of Boston College with the No. 3 pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft

Jan. 26 in Tucson, Ariz.

    Canada played a friendly against Canda, eh? If SA needs a copy editor, I could use the work. Such glaring oversights are the norm. Will Tuesday's Canadian side resemble this group?

    Considering your second spelling of Canada your offer will probably be turned down.:) Unless that was just a clever use of irony/sarcasm.
