Yes, this is the “problem” with assessing Manning right now without a regular season snap. We wont know for sure until the experiment has run its course, but so far it’s been a positive start.

Manning will succeed even if Broncos buckle

For those interested here’s a picture of the Colombian fan, Juan Pablo, signing autographs after the game – http://twitpic.com/aexdox

Australia lacking Olympic spirit not gold

Referee Antonio Damato goes “peep peep” and Denmark have defeated the Socceroos 2-0. Socceroos can find some positives out of this game, but they’ll need to be a lot better in Oman next week.

Daniel Wass shoots over from outside the box in what should be the final kick of the game.

There’ll be two minutes of extra time as the game slows down. Denmark dominating possession in the final stages.

But they are much better on the ball.

More changes for both teams as Kilkenny comes on for Bresciano.

Now Rommedahl takes a shot as he drives through Carney’s legs but Schwarzer saves.

Spiranovic’s difficult game gets worse as his back pass is intercepted by Bendtner who puts his shot wide when one on one with Schwarzer,

More Socceroos changes as Kewell and Wilkshire come off for Kruse and Cahill.

2-0 Denmark Bjelland heads past Schwarzer. The Socceroos have been better in the first half, it’s not by much.

Socceroos changes – Thompson and Jedinak off Carney and Milligan on

Agger off for Okore.

Brosque through on goal again, Wilkshire playing the ball through the centre of the Danish defence with the outside of his boot. However Brosque’s touch is a tad heavy and Andersen comes off his line to cut out the danger.

It was a classy little header from Kewell that sent Brosque away. The Victory striker has very much grown into this game.

Best chance of the game for the Socceroos as Brosque finds himself one on one with Andersen but the Danish goalkeeper block the shot at goal. The Australian sustain some pressure for a while afterwards but fail to create anything further.

Socceroos sliced through as Denmark get into the penalty area but Zimling was playing for the penalty and Damanto doesn’t buy into it. Spiranovic did well not be sucked into the challenge while the Dane will be wondering whether he might have been better off shooting first time.

A very nice touch from Harry Kewell to get forward on goal but he drives his shot across goal and wide. He hasn’t been convincing, but he’s shown the qualities he brings to the striker role that no one else in the squad has.

Eriksen and Kjaer off at half time with Kahlenberg and one other coming on. No changes for the Socceroos.

On the Official Socceroos twitter acount they’re asking what’s your favourite Bresciano Socceroos moment. Any shouts for when he didn’t shake Arnie’s hand in South Africa?

Bench: Coe, Langerak, Zullo, Cahill, Williams, Ognenovski, Carney, Kruse, Milligan, Kilkenny, Rukavytsya

Incredible stat from the best (and possibly the only) professional football statistician in Australia Andy Howe – With an average age of 31 years and and 112 days this is the 4th oldest Socceroos starting XI of all time.

Denmark vs Australia: live scores, blog

Half-time 1-0 to Denmark thanks to Agger’s 30th minute penalty. Not a great opening period for the Socceroos.

Bresciano receives the ball on the edge of the penalty area again and turns and shoot forcing Andersen to get down low to save.
