    • Scotland
    • Denmark
    • 90+3' A frantic scamble at the end, but Scotland get it clear and they have completed a 2-1 win over the Danes. A fine victory.
    • 90+1' Great piece of play by Bardsley to win a free-kick in the dying moments.
    • 90' Three minutes to be added to this one.
    • 89' Eriksen goes for goal, but McGregor was well positioned this time as the ball flew over the bar.
    • 88' Grant Hanley replaces Snodgrass for Scotland. Minutes left for Scotland to hold on.
    • 87' Wilson gives the ball away. Sloppy play and the Danes are back on the ball before Bannan fouls Zimling.
    • 86' Denmark pushing so many bodies forward. They continue to try to rescue this game, but nothing doing. Boilesen has had a fine game for the Danes.
    • 85' Silberbauer pops over a wonderful cross, but Pedersen is inches wide with a header. So close for the Danes.
    • 84' Superb stop by Sorensen! Lovely hit by Bannan from distance, but the keeper makes the block.
    • 83' Scotland having to track so many white shirts. Pedersen tries to hook home a volley, but he has lifted that effort over the bar.
    • 82' Eriksen's shot deflects behind for a corner. Eriksen with a corner, but Bardsley tracks the run of Kjaer. Goalkick to Scotland.
    • 81' Fine run by Forrest. Looked like he was fouled by a white shirt, but the referee was having none of it. The Danes seeking a leveller.
    • 80' Superb defending by Caldwell to clear the ball before McGregor can't collect seconds later. Scotland living dangerously. Michael Silberbauer put in a brilliant cross there.
    • 79' Schone goes for goal from 22 yards out. Decent effort, but McGregor down to make the stop.
    • 78' Krohn-Delhi departs to be replaced by Kadrii for the visiting side. Scotland enjoying some better moments.
    • 77' 17,582 watching this one at Hampden Park. By international friendly standards, that is pretty respectable.
    • 76' Scotland trying to let the Danes play in front of them. The ball races off the surface and through for a goalkick to Scotland.
    • 75' Michael Silberbauer replaces Lars Jacobsen for the Danes. Clock ticking down on this one.
    • 74' Steven Naismith departs to be replaced by Forrest. Naismith is saturated. A solid effort from him.
    • 73' Scotland getting read to make another change here for the Scots with Celtic winger James Forrest getting ready to get a run out.
    • 72' Caldwell goes for a long pass into the path of Mackail-Smith, but too much juice on the pass as it races through to Sorensen.
    • 71' The rain back on in Glasgow. Crowd of 15,000 or 16,000 in for this one. Not bad on a night like this.
    • 70' Bannan tries to drop a ball into the path of Mackail-Smith, but Sorensen is out quickly to collect.
    • 69' Scotland keeping the ball. Bardsley embarks on a powerful run for Scotland before Eriksen clears.
    • 68' Pedersen flicks an effort wide of goal. Bannan replaces Morrison for the Scots.
    • 67' Morrison's pass picked up by Kvist. Wilson enjoying a fine night for Scotland in defence. Pitch really heavy.
    • 66' Poor defending by Scotland as McGregor makes the save from Krohn-Delhi 12 yards out. Let-off for the home side, but they survive.
    • 65' Another change coming here for Scotland with Barry Bannan going to take over from Morrison.
    • 64' Zimling short with a passback to Sorensen. Great save by the Danish keeper to halt a shot by Mackail-Smith. Almost number three for the home side.
    • 63' Scotland win a corner after a good break involving Mackail-Smith and Morrison. Morrison fails to test Sorensen.
    • 62' Krohn-Delhi fouls Naismith and Scotland have a free-kick deep in their own half. Really need to get on the ball.
    • 61' Scotland clear the danger from Erisken's free-kick, but once again the Scots give the ball away far too cheaply. Wave after wave of Denmark attack out there.
    • 60' Snodgrass chops Krohn-Delhi to the deck. A booking for him as Eriksen stands over the dead ball.
    • 59' Agger off with Jorgensen on. Scotland really needing to inject some life into their side in this second period.
    • 58' Craig Mackail-Smith replaces Miller with Adam departing to be replaced by Dorrans.
    • 57' Denmark looking to attack, but Jacobsen handles. Changes coming here.
    • 56' Crainey hammers it long as Agger picks up. Denmark looking for a free shirt. Erisken's shot is charged down.
    • 55' Scotland set to shuffle their pack here. Really need to inject some life into their movements. All the Scottish players back defending.
    • 54' Schone goes for goal from 35 yards. Ball swerving and dipping, but McGregor keeps his eyes on it to nudge it behind a post.
    • 53' Wilson hammers the ball long down the pitch under pressure from Pedersen. Danes really hemming the Scots in.
    • 52' Ball spins away from Jacobsen. Scotland with the goalkick as McGregor knocks it long.
    • 51' Scotland finding it difficult to keep the ball for any length of time. Really need to unearth some possession and quickly.
    • 50' Denmark content to go back to keep the ball as Agger and Krohn-Delhi combine, but the ball spins off the surface quickly. Denmark go quickly.
    • 49' Eriksen throws a decent free-kick into the area, but Agger can only head wide of the target.
    • 48' Pedersen and Zimling are also on for the Danes with Rommedahl and Poulsen off. Denmark really trying to find a leveller.
    • 47' Lasse Schone has been brought on for Denmark with Bendtner departing at the break.
    • 46' We are underway in the second period with Denmark getting this match started again.
    • 45+2' There goes the whistle for the break! Scotland lead 2-1 at the break. This is the first time they have scored twice in a friendly at Hampden Park since they overcame Hungary 2-0 in 1987.
    • 45' Morrison fouled by Bendtner. Going to be two minutes added to the half.
    • 44' GOAL FOR SCOTLAND! Miller crosses to the back post and Snodgrass arrives with purpose to head beyond Sorensen from four yards out. Great move by the Scots.
    • 43' Eriksen with the delivery, but good header out by Cowie. Strong defending as we head for the break with Denmark on the ball.
    • 42' Denmark continue to push and probe as Kvist goes beyond Crainey. A corner to Denmark.
    • 41' Kjaer has the ball for the Danes. Superb stop by McGregor low to his right to make the save from Boilesen. Superb stop from the Scotland keeper with the Danish player unmarked 15 yards out.
    • 40' Scotland keeping the ball well, but Denmark have plenty of bodies back. That rain really hurtling down now. Not easy for the players in this driving rain.
    • 39' Denmark knocking the ball around with some purpose before it flies out of play above the head of Bendtner. Scotland try to get out.
    • 38' Agger with a long and languid ball from deep. Heading nowhere as McGregor comes out to collect the loose ball.
    • 37' Eriksen gives Adam the slip, but he pushes his shot wide of goal from distance. Great turn of pace by the Ajax youngster.
    • 36' Rommedahl caught offside as Denmark push for a second. Rain really chucking it down at the moment. Not ideal for playing pretty football.
    • 35' Chance here with Naismith on the ball. Tries to feed Miller, but just overhits the pass before Adam fouls Eriksen seconds later.
    • 34' Caldwell drops a ball down the middle. Miller almost on the end of that, but Sorensen is out quickly to collect. Scotland try to compose themselves.
    • 33' McGregor completely mistimed his jump and the flight of the ball for that free-kick. Snodgrass looking in a spot of bother. He goes off for some treatment.
    • 32' GOAL FOR DENMARK! Eriksen floats in the free-kick. McGregor misses the ball and the Danes have equalised. Poor goalkeeping. Mistake by McGregor.
    • 31' Adam penalised for a late tackle on Krohn-Delhi. Eriksen to take this free-kick.
    • 30' Caldwell picks out Morrison. He turns and goes for goal from 30 yards out, but has lifted the shot over the bar. Chance gone for the Scots.
    • 29' Eriksen throws the free-kick into the area. Met by Miller, who blocks the delivery. Scotland can pick up the loose ball. Celtic manager Neil Lennon watching this one in the stands.
    • 28' Crainey guilty of foul play on Jacobsen. Free-kick to the Danes.
    • 27' Snodgrass fouls Boilesen. Heavy tackle, but no booking. The Danes back on the ball, but Eriksen fails to go beyond Bardsley.
    • 26' Scotland fans suddenly in party mood. Morrison on the break, but he falls to the deck as he prepares to make the pass to Naismith. The home side not lacking adventure.
    • 25' Not really sure if that is a good free-kick or a poor clearance. The first time Scotland have scored against the Danes in their previous five meetings.
    • 24' GOAL FOR SCOTLAND! Adam wallops in a free-kick. The ball skids off Kvist and ends up in the net. Nightmare for the Danes!
    • 23' Lovely pass by Eriksen to play in Rommedahl. He goes for goal. Great strike, but McGregor stands up to make a fine stop.
    • 22' Chance for Scotland with Morrison breaking, but Naismith can't receive the final pass. What a great chance that was. Here come Denmark.
    • 21' Brown set to depart to be replaced by Cowie. Miller offside seconds later.
    • 20' Think Brown has run his race for the evening. He is back on the deck. Don Cowie is getting warmed up.
    • 19' Kjaer drags a long pass right out the park. Poor, poor stuff. Chance for Scotland to apply pressure.
    • 18' Both men back on the pitch for the moment as the rain continues to slam down. Kjaer plays the ball to Kvist. Denmark trying to build some momentum.
    • 17' Brown sitting back up. Kjaer really taken a sore one there on the face, but Brown is hobbling on his ankle.
    • 16' Kjaer and Brown collide. 50-50 ball and both men are in a spot of bother here. Worrying moments.
    • 15' Bardsley makes a decent charge into the area, but his run is halted by a white shirt. Decent burst of pace by the Sunderland full-back.
    • 14' Bendtner picks up a loose ball before Miller does likewise, but he can't find Miller. Ball really skidding off the surface.
    • 13' Naismith just overhits a pass to Miller after Brown played him in. Right idea, but Sorensen comes to collect for the Danes.
    • 12' Snodgrass throws over a fine cross with his left foot. Miller rises in the area, but nods wide of the goal. Good movement from the Scotland skipper Miller.
    • 11' Denmark looking menacing, but a fine bit of defending by Wilson before the ball works its way back to Sorensen in the visiting goal.
    • 10' Lovely ball by Naismith into the box. Miller with the header, but can't direct it towards goal. Chance there for Scotland.
    • 9' Northern Ireland lead the Faroe Islands 1-0 in their Euro 2012 qualifier. Meanwhile, Adam pings a great ball out to Crainey. Good tackle by Kjaer on Morrison.
    • 8' Scott Brown's second touch is a tackle and the Danes back on the ball. All Denmark at the moment. Moving it around with some ease, it must be said.
    • 7' Morrison plays a neat one-two with Brown. Scotland yet to really trouble this Danish side, who are looking remarkably comfortable on the ball.
    • 6' Eriksen with the corner, but the Danes can't pick it up before Naismith breaks up the park. Scotland have a throw-in at the halfway line.
    • 5' Not really up to speed yet as Denmark pick up the loose ball. Erisken to Kvist before Brown challenges Eriksen. Corner to the Danes.
    • 4' Naismith meets a long ball from Sorensen. Craig Levein looking a bit pensive on the touchline. Kjaer with the ball at the back for the Danes.
    • 3' Poulsen lifts the long ball up the park, but Wilson is back again to head clear. Decent start by the young defender at the heart of the home defence.
    • 2' Not exactly a full house inside Hampden for this match. Wilson heads the ball out for Scotland before McGregor picks up seconds later.
    • 1' Scotland get this one off and running in the rain.
    • 19.42 Rain is chucking it down in Glasgow, but the pitch is in terrific condition. Should be an interesting one. Teams in the tunnel at Hampden.
