Toronto star Altidore urging USA to get serious

Jozy Altidore implored his USA teammates to get back to business after losing 3-2 to Denmark in a friendly on Wednesday.

?The US twice led but came away with a narrow defeat after Nicklas Bendtner netted a hat-trick in Aarhus.

?Toronto FC ace Altidore, who netted the opener in the 19th minute, is now looking to Tuesday's meeting with Switzerland in Zurich as a chance to really set themselves up for the CONCACAF Gold Cup which kicks off in July.

?"Switzerland's another tough game," said the former Sunderland striker who had netted his 28th international goal.

?"It's another good opponent. It's another opportunity for us to work on things, but we have to take these chances seriously now, because there's not many left until we start a competition and that's where it counts."?
