Mexico and Denmark play to draw

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Andrea Cornelius scored on a penalty kick in the 84th minute to give Denmark a 1-1 draw against Mexico on Wednesday night in an international soccer friendly at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Marco Fabian gave Mexico a 1-0 lead on a penalty in the 68th minute after midfielder Javier Aquino was pulled down just inside the 18-yard box. The lead lasted about 16 minutes, when Cornelius was fouled in the penalty area by Mexico's Jorge Torres Nilo.

It was the 2013 opener for Mexico, the highest-ranked team from North America in FIFA's world soccer rankings at No. 15. Mexico begins World Cup qualifying Feb. 6 in Mexico City against Jamaica.

The final result drew a few jeers from the Mexican partisan crowd of 43,345, which was believed to be the second-largest to see a soccer match in the state of Arizona. Denmark entered the match as FIFA's 23rd-ranked team.
