FT Germany 2 – 1 Denmark

FT Germany 2 – 1 Denmark

As expected Germany have gone for a full-strength side with the exception of Boateng who is suspended; he is replaced by Bender. As for Denmark, well as you may or may not know, Rommedahl is out and he will be sorely missed by Morton Olsen’s side; he is replaced by Poulsen.

At 19′, Muller cuts inside and passes to Ozil tries a first-time pass into the box. Agger cuts out the ball and it goes for a throw. From that the ball is cut across, Gomez does one of those funny air-kicks and the ball lands at the feet of the new Arsenal man. He slams it home form the centre of the box. He could have closed his eyes there and still scored. 1-0 for Germany.

At 24′, a nice, deep corner finds Bendtner who escapes the clutches of Schweinsteiger and heads the ball across the box. It finds Krohn-Dehli who heads it home for his second goal of the night. 1-1.

Finally at 80′, Mesut Ozil slides the ball across but Klose cannot reach it. No matter. Bender is at the back post and he slips it home. 2-1 for the Germans.

Germany started well and looked like they would win by a few but Denmark got back in the game thanks to some generous defending from the lads on the other side. After half-time, neither offered much. Germany spent most of the time camped just outside the Danish box but the Danes were resilient until a nice counterattack was finished off by Bender.
