  1. Three sides in Group C now sat on three points. Every chance that it could be four by the time Holland finish with Germany. Who will make the knockout stage? What did you make of Portugal? And Ronaldo? Can Denmark cause a shock and make the last eight? Get your thoughts in to or @SkySportsChrisB.

  2. Denmark 2 Portugal 3. An entertaining contest comes to a close. Varela steps off the bench to atch all three points for Portugal. A Bendtner brace offer Denmark hope and they deserve immense credit for hauling their way back into the tie.

  3. 90+4

    Possible the last chance for Denmark goes begging. Nice football as they float the ball into the box, and then across it. Schone arrives on cue, but he suffers a rush a blood and fires wildly wide of the target.

  4. 90+3

    Varela chases Simon Poulsen back towards his own goal. The ball not where Denmark need it to be. Agger now pushed forward to help out in attack.

  5. 90+2

    Denmark knocking on the door. Simon Poulsen hangs up a cross, but Alves heads clear. Portugal counter again, but Oliveira can't find Ronaldo. He is booked for a trip on Kvist.

  6. 90+1

    Anxious faces on the Portuguese bench. Can their side see this out? They are getting everyone behind the ball now.

  7. 90

    We will have four minutes of stoppage time.

  8. 90

    Schone on in place of Krohn-Delhi. Last throw of the dice.

  9. 90

    Long throw comes to nothing. Denmark leaving space at the back. Portugal have numbers forward, but Varela heads for the corner flag.

  10. 89

    Eriksen whips over the set-piece, but it bounces away on the far side. Mikkelsen does well to force a throw off the legs of Veloso. Still hope for the Danes.

  11. 88

    Defensive switch ahead of the corner sees Nani replaced by Rolando.

  12. 88

    Surely Denmark can't come back again, can they? As I speak, they force their way down the left wing and win a corner. Maybe, just maybe.

  13. 87

    GOAL PORTUGAL - VARELA. What a change that proved to be. Fabulous strike from Varela has Portugal back in front. He swings at a cross, missing it. The ball lands behind him, so he spins and rifles it into the back of the net from 12 yards out.

  14. 86

    Nani delivers. Bendtner able to get a telling touch inside his own box this time, as he nods clear. Portugal still pushing and they force another corner. Mountinho takes, and Ronaldo swings at thin air. Not his day.

  15. 85

    Varela on in place of Meireles. Portugal win a corner.

  16. 85

    ANother chance for Ronaldo, and another one goes begging. He has two players apping at his heels but, from inside the box, he can only poke straight at Andersen.

  17. 84

    Pepe takes charge and races out from the back. The ball is worked into the feet of Oliveira, with his back to goal. He is able to turn and shoot, but slips as he does and sends the ball well wide.

  18. 83

    Nice one-two between Nani and Meireles. The former takes a tumble and he looks to break into the box. Nothing given. Referee brushes off the challenge as a coming together.

  19. 82

    Ronaldo's effort from an angle dips low and around the wall. It bounces just in front of Andersen, who has players running across his line of sight, but he gathers confidently.

  20. 81

    Jacobsen cautioned. Free-kick to Portugal on the edge of the box. Ronaldo was the man tripped and will take the set-piece himself.
