Enevoldsen: Struck for Denmark
Denmark recorded a 2-0 victory over Denmark ahead of the World Cup but may have paid a major price after Simon Kjaer was stretchered off.
Denmark made a bright start and Juventus midfielder Christian Poulsen broke the deadlock in the 27th minute.
Senegal tried to get back into the game but Denmark held on and secured the win with a second goal in the 90th minute.
Substitute Tomas Enevoldsen of FC Groningen grabbed the goal to boost his chances of a starting spot in South Africa.
But there was a major scare when Palermo centre-back Kjaer was stretchered off nine minutes from time after going in for a tackle with Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf.
Denmark are in Group E at the World Cup alongside Holland, Cameroon and Japan.
