    Time:90'
    • Denmark
    • Germany
    • 90+3 Instead it's Denmark 2-2 Germany.
    • 90+3 Germany looked classy in attack and solid in defence and, had Gomez converted his late chances, would have come away easy winners.
    • 90+3 Denmark earn a draw after finding themselves behind twice in the match.
    • 90+3 And the final whistle blows!
    • 90+1 We're into stoppage time in Denmark...
    • 89 Gomez made to pay for his double miss a couple of minutes earlier.
    • 87 Shade of offside as Junker appeared to be ahead of the last defender as Agger played the ball over to Rommedahl. But in a different phase of play... It's a grey area.
    • 86 GOAL! It's 2-2! And it's the substitute Junker who levels the scores! Wiese comes racing out of his goal to meet the ball ahead of Rommedahl but instead chests it into the path of Junker, who taps into the open net. Goalkeeping error by Wiese.
    • 85 Gomez is through again in a similar position, just slightly wider, but pulls his effort wide of the left post. He's had his chances tonight...
    • 83 Gomez should have made it 3-1! Clean through with just the keeper to beat, Gomez's shot is saved well by Sorensen. But that should have been game, set and match to Germany.
    • 82 Some nifty interchanging of passes by Germany almost sees them craft another chance but Kjaer was having none of it!
    • 80 How DID Agger miss?? (part two) Denmark win a corner on the left and Agger finds the ball at his feet but can't dig it from under his feet and his shot is disappointing. But seeing as he was just a couple of yards from goal, he will be disappointed with that.
    • 79 Boateng, who was on a yellow card, is withdrawn after a strong showing tonight.
    • 78 Schulz for Boateng (Germany)
    • 78 Eriksen (still trying) sees a gap in the German defence and goes for goal from 20 yards but Wiese tips it over the bar.
    • 77 Gomez turns and shots well from the edge of the box but his shot is just wide. Gomez still lively here.
    • 76 Denmark have a spring in their step now as they sense they can get something from the game. Should be an interesting final 15 minutes...
    • 74 Or is it?? 2-1! It's Rommedahl for Denmark! He skips inside from the right in typical Rommedahl style and sends an arrowed shot into the far corner with his left foot, beyond the diving Wiese. Game on.
    • 72 GOAL! 2-0 GERMANY! It's the substitute Helmes who finishes well after Tasci put him through. Game over.
    • 71 Eriksen, still huffing and puffing, creates some space on the edge of the box before getting a shot away - but it goes wide.
    • 70 Lorentzen is into the action straight away for Denmark with a strong run down the right and a low cross which Wiese did well to hold on to.
    • 68 A decent showing by Kroos, who leaves the field for Germany. He's strengthened his stake for a first team place tonight.
    • 67 Lorentzen for Kvist (Denmark)
    • 66 Helmes for Kroos (Germany)
    • 66 ...But Sorensen plucks the free-kick from the air.
    • 65 Aaron Hunt in fouled by Jacobsen in a dangerous area on the Germany left.
    • 64 Simon Kjaer stops another fluid Germany attack, with Gomez lurking. Kjaer keeping Denmark in this.
    • 62 Could, and maybe should, have been a second for Germany...
    • 61 So close to a second for Germany! Gomez again! Hitzlsperger's shots have been causing Sorensen problems all night and this time the Stoke keeper couldn't hold on and Gomez almost pounced but for some world class defending by Kjaer, who somehow managed to put his foot in the way!
    • 59 The man with the German name, Aaron Hunt, almost makes an immediate impact with a rasping shot from 25 yards which is turned away for a corner by Sorensen!
    • 58 Hunt for Marin (Germany)
    • 57 Junker for Pederson (Denmark)
    • 56 Riether for Beck (Germany)
    • 54 Couple of substitutions coming up for both sides...
    • 53 HOW DID AGGER MISS? Eriksen whips in another dangerous free kick which Kjaer couldn't connect with but Agger could - only to fire his shot against the woodwork from 5 yards!
    • 52 Schafer gets a shot away for Germany from the left corner of the penalty box after some neat footwork from Gomez on the edge of the area. Gomez couldn't make space for himself so found Schafer, but his shot was saved well by Sorensen.
    • 50 Silberbauer for Enevoldsen, Schone for Jensen (both Denmark)
    • 50 A couple of Denmark changes to tell you about...
    • 50 Strong start to the second half by Denmark though...
    • 49 Agger has a sight of goal from the resulting corner but slices it, horribly, wide.
    • 48 Pederson comes close again! But his shot is kicked off the line by Tasci.
    • 47 Denmark almost grab an early equaliser! A cross from the right was headed out for a corner by Beck, who didn't look comfortable one bit.
    • 46 Germany kick us off, shooting from right to left this time.
    • 46 The second half is underway...
    • 45 Mario Gomez's slick finish after 18 minutes separates the sides as we go in for the break...
    • 45 But that's half time Denmark.
    • 44 Denmark coming back into it in the closing stages of the first half...
    • 43 However, the approach-play hasn't and both sides are still knocking it around nicely.
    • 41 Simon Kjaer sends one of the worst shots of the year about 20 yards over the bar. The shooting from distance in this game has been woeful.
    • 39 Rommedahl comes close for Denmark but can't quite pick up Eriksen's excellent throughball. That was close.
    • 37 Hitzlsperger, who seems to have missed shooting from 60 yards out, tries his luck from about 30 yards this time but it's a daisy-cutter that goes 5 or so yards wide.
    • 35 Gomez gets ahead of Agger and sends a header just wide. Titanic battle between those two so far.
    • 33 Boateng looks for Gomez with a measured pass but Kjaer shields it well and Sorensen gathers.
    • 31 Jacobsen spins away from a couple of German defenders in a way that Zidane would not have been proud of but it worked as he tried to make space, only to spurn the chance with a terrible, terrble shot which is still rising...
    • 29 Germany controlling the pace here now...
    • 28 A defence which is missing 3 or it's 4 first choice players.
    • 27 Denamrk are enjoying patch periods of possession but are unable to penetrate Germany's brick wall of a defence.
    • 25 Early substitution for Denmark to replace the hobbling Simon Poulsen.
    • 24 J. Thomsen for Simon Poulsen (Denmark)
    • 22 Eriksen AGAIN in the mix for Denmark but he can't get his cross in as he is dealt with by Beck by the corner flag.
    • 20 Eriksen picks the ball up some 35 yards out and, with no better option, tries his luck. Awful effort, well over the bar.
    • 19 Germany breaking with real confidence every single time and you fancy them to add to their leadbefore half time. But this time Kroos' pass pushes Gomez too farwide and the move breaks down.
    • 17 GOAL!! It's Gomez for Germany. Beck burst forward from the right and his deep cross was comically air kicked by Kroos, before Hitzlsperger picked it up 20 yards out and threaded a pass through to Gomez, who slotted cooly beyond Sorensen.
    • 15 Germany win a free kick in a dangerous poition on the right. Kroos to whip it in...
    • 13 Really nice approach play by Germany, who have been on the back foot so far, but Marin loses his footing at the crucial time as the Germans look to turn over the Danish defence.
    • 11 Denmark win another free kick, this time much closer to goal. Eriksen fires over this time.
    • 9 Hitzlsperger comes close for Germany in what has been a lively opening 10 minutes! But the man with the thunderfoot couldn't find the target this time.
    • 7 Boateng (Germany)
    • 6 CHANCE FOR AGGER! Eriksen lofts a free kick into the Germany box and Agger, Denmark captain tonight, sees his freeb header saved. Should have done better there.
    • 5 Gomez gets a sniff of a chance for Germany but Kjaer and Agger combine to snuff out the danger.
    • 3 The atmosphere is Parken is probably best described as "echoey" - not a huge crowd here tonight.
    • 2 Denmark knocking on the door in the opening moments as Eriksen whips in a low cross from the right, which had Wiese scrambling across the German goal.
    • 1 And we're underway in Parken...
    • 19.30 GERMANY XI: Wiese, Beck, Boateng, Tasci, Schafer, Trasch, Hitzlsperger, Hunt, Kroos, Marin, Gomez
    • 19.25 DENMARK XI:: Sorensen, Jacobsen, Kjaer, Agger, S, Poulsen, Kvist, Jensen, Eriksen, Enevoldsen, Pedersen, Rommedahl
    • 19.20 Thomas Hitzlsperger will skipper Germany in tonight's friendly match against Denmark, halting Philip Lahm and Michael Ballack's dispute over the captaincy.
    • 18:45 Denmark play host to World Cup semi-finalists Germany at Parken in Copenhagen.
  • Summary

    • 86 GOAL! It's 2-2! And it's the substitute Junker who levels the scores! Wiese comes racing out of his goal to meet the ball ahead of Rommedahl but instead chests it into the path of Junker, who taps into the open net. Goalkeeping error by Wiese.
    • 83 Gomez should have made it 3-1! Clean through with just the keeper to beat, Gomez's shot is saved well by Sorensen. But that should have been game, set and match to Germany.
