Denmark beats USA 3-2

One of the perks of the U.S. men's national team playing 12th-ranked Switzerland in a friendly on Tuesday is getting to work out and train in Zurich. What else happens to be located in Zurich? FIFA's headquarters.

The U.S. team went to FIFA's headquarters Friday in the build-up to the second and final game of this international window, and Gyasi Zardes, Jozy Altidore, Cody Cropper, Miguel Ibarra and Tim Ream even posed for a picture with president Sepp Blatter.

The U.S. is looking for a spark after dropping a 3-2 result to Denmark in which the scoreboard didn't tell the entire story of the game. Perhaps a trip to world soccer's home and a glimpse of the World Cup trophy will provide some inspiration.
