TORONTO - The Canadian Soccer Association on Monday announced that Canada will take on Denmark at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson, AZ in an international friendly on Jan. 27.

Still without a manager following Stephen Hart's resignation in October, Canada will use the winter date as preparation for next summer's Gold Cup.

The Danes enter January's friendly looking to prepare for UEFA World Cup qualifying, which they'll resume in March with a critical date in the Czech Republic.

Denmark currently sits second-to-last in its qualifying group on two points after three games.

Canada crashed out of 2014 World Cup qualifying last month in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, falling 8-1 when a draw in Central America would have seen them progress to next year's final round of qualifying for the first time since the late 1990s.
