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.
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.
Schone on in place of Krohn-Delhi. Last throw of the dice.
Defensive switch ahead of the corner sees Nani replaced by Rolando.
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.
Varela on in place of Meireles. Portugal win a corner.
Jacobsen cautioned. Free-kick to Portugal on the edge of the box. Ronaldo was the man tripped and will take the set-piece himself.
GOAL DENMARK - BENDTNER. We're all square. From two goals up, Portugal are pegged back. Bendtner yet again. Portugal must hate the sight of him. He peels off to the back post and powers a header past Patricio, who can only push the ball onto the inside of the post and watch it roll into the net.
Postiga makes way for Oliveira. Youngster with a big reputation.
Rommedahl hobbles off. Denmark pick up their second injury blow of the game. Mikkelsen on in his place.
Alves clatters through the back of Eriksen. No card. Jakob Poulsen then trips Nani as he breaks down the right flank, and he does see yellow.
Barry in Vancouver says: 'I fancy Denmark to atch a point in this match. Possibly another goal from Bendtner.'
Portugal still strong favourites to pick up three points at 2/9, with Denmark 12/1 and the draw 4/1. You can get 9/2 on Ronaldo to get the next goal.
Denmark 1 Portugal. Goals from Pepe and Postiga has Portugal in complete control, but Bendtner has offered Denmark hope. Still all to play for in an entertaining encounter.
GOAL DENMARK - BENDTNER. Denmark back in it before the break. Great move finished off by Bendtner, who loves scoring against Portugal. Jacobsen feeds a cross to the back post, Krohn-Delhi nods back across the face and Bendtner is able to head into an empty net from close range.
GOAL PORTUGAL - POSTIGA. A whipped delivery from Coentrao makes its way to Nani. He returns the ball to the front post with interest and Postiga gets across Kjaer to sweep past Andersen and into the top corner.
Moutinho with another dangerouys delivery into the heart of the box. Denmark clear and look to counter. Krohn-Delhi leads the charge and Meireles is cautioned for handling.
GOAL PORTUGAL - PEPE. Opening goal of the game arrives from the head of Pepe. Corner is swung towards the near post, where Pepe glances past Andersen. Well-worked set play.
Zimling can't continue and Jakob Poulsen is sent on in his place.
Stephen R Poverello fears we may be in for a dull encounter. He says: 'This one is a sure 0-0 written all over it!'
Roland is backing the Danes to pull off another surprise. He says: 'Denmark will edge Portugal with a narrow margin, and the goal will come from Niklas Bendtner from a setpiece.'
Timal is the first to get in touch and believes the pressure is mounting on both sides, saying: 'This is a huge game for both I think. Also Denmark games will decide this strong group. Dutch unable to beat Denmark but I think 2-0 for Portugal today. Brace from Ronaldo or 1 each from Ronaldo & Nani.'
Fancy a flutter prior to kick-off? Head on over to skybet.com. Portugal have been very popular, backed into 5/6 from 10/11 this morning. The Danes are expected to play for the point which would put them on the brink of qualification after their shock win over Holland and a stalemate is 12/5 with another Danish victory a 7/2 shot. Punters are backing Ronaldo and co to break down the Kjaer/Agger defensive stand from the Danes. We offer 20/1 for Ronaldo to score in a 1-0 success and 25/1 for the Real Madrid hitman to score first in a 2-1 win. Alternatively Christian Eriksen to score first in a 1-0 win for the Danes is a 75/1 shot.
