New York, Jan. 8. -- The Danish Football association has requested the United States Soccer Football association to select an All-American squad for a series of games to be played in Denmark in May. The Danes are willing to guarantee $9,000 it was announced today.
The offer was made through Harry Sandager of Pawtucket, R. I., a member of the United States Football association council, who recently returned from Denmark. The national and international games committee of the association will submit the Danish proposition to the council by mail vote.
An offer has been received by the association from Sweden also requesting twenty players who are adept in baseball as well as soccer to play in that country next summer.
