FULL TIME. Japan deservedly win to go through to face Paraguay on Tuesday. They could go far in this World Cup on this showing. Thanks for your views tonight, stay with us for reaction.
Inamoto is on for Endo.
Konno is on for Okubo.
GOAL - OKAZAKI!!!!! Honda does really well to run into the box before dragging the ball back to Okazaki to tap in from 10 yards!!
GOAL - TOMASSON!!! Tomasson takes the penalty but it is poor and the keeper saves to his right. But the rebound falls nicely for Tomasson to slot home which he does to become his country's joint record goal scorer with 52!!
Agger is felled by Hasebe in the penalty area for a spot kick. He is pushed in the back and the ref makes the right decision.
Okazaki is on for Matsui.
C Poulsen punts a ball forward and Bendtner goes for a header with Nakazawa on the edge of the box but he is booked for the challenge.
Eriksen comes on for Kahlenberg.
Striker Larsen is on for defender Kroldrup as Denmark go for broke.
C Poulsen is booked for a foul and it is a free-kick 40 yards out in front of goal.
Stewart, another of our betting staff, has been in touch to say: "Great effort from the Japanese and desperate Denmark have to go for broke in the 2nd half. It is 5/4 over 3.5 Goals and given the circumstances this could be a runner. Van persie has scored for Holland and Denmark need his Arsenal partner Bendtner to get Denmark back in it and he is 13/2 to score next." Thanks for the info Stewart!
Fancy a bet? Jaymes our betting man has been back in touch to say: "Denmark 18/1, Draw 11/2, Japan 1/7, Japan have come out firing here with two impressive free kicks giving them a 2 goal lead, and look good to go on and win this at 1/6. A bit of money now going on a correct score of 3-0 at 11/2. We are decent winners in the FGS market with only a few bets on Honda pre match at 10/1. Holland (1/6) and Japan (1/7) look good to go on and win their respective games and qualify from the group." Cheers Jaymes.
HALF TIME. The ref blows for half time and Japan go in two goals to the good. Denmark need three in the second half to salvage their World Cup hopes.
J Poulsen is on for Jorgensen as Denmark try desperately to get back into this game.
GOAL - ENDO!!!! Wow, the Japanese score again from a free-kick. This time Endo places it around the wall and into the left corner of Sorensen's net!! Fantastic!! Can the Danes come back from this now - they now need three.
Honda is fouled by Kroldrup for a free-kick in a dangerous position 26 yards out in front of goal.
Nagatomo is booked for time-wasting taking the throw in.
GOAL - HONDA!!!! Honda hits the free-kick around the wall and into the right side of the goal. The ball takes a swerve, wrong-footing Sorensen and into the net!!
Japan win a free-kick 30 yards out on the right. Endo is booked for time-wasting before he takes the kick.
Jaymes our betting man has been in touch to say: "Denmark are the favourites here and are well backed, but there is also a few quid on Japan and the draw. The price boost for FGS is working with Tomasson well backed at 8/1, there is also a few quid on Bendtner at 6/1. In the correct score market, there isn't much in it between either team winning 2-1 and a 2-2 draw." Thanks for the info Jaymes, I think Bendtner will get both goals in a 2-0 win!

Fancy a bet? Sky Bet go 11/10 for a Denmark win, 23/10 for the draw and 5/2 for a Japan victory. I'm going for a 2-0 win to the Danes with Bendtner to score first which pays a handsome 33/1!
