  1. Thanks for your feedback this evening, hope you enjoyed the match - I know I did. Cheers for tuning in.

  2. I thought the Danish backline was superb today, particularly in that second half when Holland piled on the pressure. It just wa't the Oranje's day - 29 shots in total and no result.

  3. VERY interested to hear your thoughts on that one! Where did it all go wrong for Holland? And who stood out for Denmark? Obvious candidate seems to be Agger - what a display! Drop me a Tweet @SkySportsRachG or email

  4. That's it, it's all over! What an upset as Denmark beat Holland 1-0 in their Group B opener!

  5. 90+3

    A last-ditch attack for Holland and the box is packed as eijder bombs forward but nothing comes of it. Just seconds remaining...

  6. 90+2

    More frustration for eijder as he drives in another shot but can't keep it down as it goes over.

  7. 90+1

    The Dutch pile forward for the corner but Heitinga's header goes wide. Replays show that appeared a handball in the box a few minutes ago and Huntelaar was incensed.

  8. 90

    Three minutes of stoppage time are added. Robben launches in a throw and Van der Vaart wins it, earning a corner for Holland.

  9. 89

    There's late controversy as the Dutch call for a penalty and are denied. Just a minute remaining now and Schone tries to get forward, with Van Bommel closing him down.

  10. 88

    Kuyt hits and hopes with a long ball from the right but Anderson is there to atch it to safety. Van Bommel picks out Van der Vaart as they try to get forward once again.

  11. 87

    The minutes trickle down and the Dutch are running out of options. The ball goes back to Anderson as the Danes try to keep possession.

  12. 85

    Dirk Kuyt comes on for a tired-looking Van der Wiel. Can he bring some late attacking power to the game?

  13. 84

    Mikkelsen takes on Willems down the right but Van Bommel is there to close down the new arrival.

  14. 83

    Tobias Mikkelsen comes on for Dennis Rommedahl as the Danes make a change.

  15. 82

    Just eight minutes of regular time stand between the Dutch and defeat now - can they come back? They've livened up this half but with no end product so far.

  16. 81

    Kvist slips and handles the ball in the middle of the park to earn a yellow.

  17. 80

    Poulsen earns himself a booking for timewasting with a throw.

  18. 79

    Robben breaks down the right, taking on Poulsen and trying a shot, but it's the wrong option with eijder on the edge of the box.

  19. 78

    A powerful driving run from Poulsen almost comes to fruition as he breaks into the box but is ultimately subdued by the Oranje backline.
