    • 90+4 A Portugal attack breaks down for offside... remember, a draw and they win the group! It would be totally undeserved given the circumstances... AND THERE'S THE WHISTLE! DENMARK QUALIFY! And Portugal must take their chances in the play-offs!
    • 90+2 Free-kick Portugal 30 yards out... WHAT A GOAL BY RONALDO! Classic C-Ron up-and-under into the top right. If they do get a draw it will be barely deserved.
    • 90' Four minutes added time....
    • 89' AGAIN should have been a third for Denmark but a super block by Patricio from Jakob Poulsen.
    • 86' Standing ovation for Rommedahl as he comes off for Denmark. Man of the match.
    • 85' ANOTHER MISS FOR DENMARK! How are they not 3-0 up at least? Rommedahl gets clean through, no-one can catch him, but his low driven finish is turned around the post by Patricio.
    • 84' Almost a third for Denmark as Patricio is forced to tip Bendtner's header over! Great cross Rommedahl again!
    • 80' Oh dear. Portugal piling it on and, after a corner is flapped at by Sorensen, Meireles mis-hits a close-range finish well wide. Should have scored.
    • 70' Well wide by Nani after a sol run. Poulsen is on for Denmark, presumably to kick people.
    • 67' Denmark carve Portugal open again, Rommedahl with searing pace but not the final ball this time.
    • 63' GOAL DENMARK! 2-0! And it's Nicklas Bendtner! He's delighted! Great pace from Rommedahl, who is still super quick despite his age, and a low ball across allows a simple tap-in! Sorensen is going nuts. "Aaarrrggghh!" he roars.
    • 61' Terrible cross from Alves after a promising move for the Portuguese. There is a notable lack of quality in this team compared to a fully-fit, in-form Portugal.
    • 55' Should have scored! Martins fires straight at Sorensen after Portugal carved open Denmark.
    • 54' Well wide from Krohn-Dehli on the left side.
    • 48' BIG MISS DENMARK! A great chance to make it 2-0 as Rommedahl's low cross into the box is totally miscleared by Pereira but it comes too quickly to the goalscorer who spoons it over! Seconds earlier Bendtner's touch let him down after he was sent clear on the left.
    • 47' Good defending from Kjaer as Ronaldo and co almost raced in behind.
    • 46' Can Portugal fight back from this? They have struggled against the physical Danes so far.
    • 45' Half-time in Denmark too and Portugal are trailing! Could be a big upset!
    • 13' GOAL DENMARK!! Krohn-Dehli with the finish! This could be an almighty upset!
    • 1' Denmark's all-or-nothing clash with Portugal is underway. They both have 16 points and the head-to-head is in favour of Portugal after a 3-1 earlier. But if the Danes win that means nothing.
