Group A: URUGUAY (0-0-0, 0 pts.) vs. DENMARK (0-0-0, 0 pts.) (TV: Live, ESPN2, Univision, 5 am ET; Tape, Telefutura, 12:30 pm ET/PT) Sixteen years ago, Denmark crushed Uruguay, 6-1. It was the high point of an exciting debut tournament for the Danes. This time, the game should be much closer. Neither Denmark, a quarterfinalist four years ago, nor Uruguay, World Cup champion in 1930 and 1950, figure among the favorites, but both teams feature potent attacks. Uruguayan Alvaro Recoba has one of the best left foots in the tournament. Mexican-based Sebastian Abreu could emerge as one of the surprises. On the Danish side, there's Dennis Rommedahl, Jon Dahl Tomasson and Ebbe Sand. PROBABLE LINEUPS: Uruguay -- 1 Carini, 2 Mendez, 14 Sorondo, 4 Montero, 6 Rodriguez, 8 Varela, 5 Garcia, 7 Guigou, 20 Recoba, 9 Silva, 13 Abreu. Denmark -- 1 Sorensen, 6 Helveg, 3 Henriksen, 3 Laursen, 5 Heintze, 14 C.Jensen, 7 Gravesen, 19 Rommedahl, 8 Gronkjaer, 9 Tomasson, 11 Sand. REFEREE: Saad Mane (Kuwait). SUSPENSIONS: None. NUMBER: 3 Only three Danes who started against Brazil in the 3-2 loss in the quarterfinals of the 1998 World Cup are still with the team: Jan Heintze, Thomas Helveg and Martin Jorgensen.
