GOAL Netherlands 0-1 Denmark (Michael Krohn-Dehli)
Denmark have been completely under the cosh for the first 20 or so minutes and now they lead. Simon Poulsen’s run created it as the full-back drove deep into Dutch territory down the left. A deflection off his cross plays a major part as well to give Michael Krohn-Dehli possession outside the box, but after that it is all down to the Danish number nine. He cuts past Ron Vlaar into the box and then fires low past Maarten Stekelenburg. We’ve got a proper game on our hands now.
