Denmark stay on course

Denmark kept their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign on track with victory over Scandinavian rivals Iceland tonight.

Goals from Lasse Schone and Christian Eriksen earned Morten Olsen's men their third win in Group H and ensured they kept up the pressure on Norway and Portugal above them.

Iceland continue to prop up the standings, however, after slipping to their second defeat against the Danes.

The hosts came into the match looking for their first win in qualifying, but quickly found themselves on the backfoot with goalkeeper Stefan Magnusson tipping Michael Krohn-Dehli's testing strike round the post after just two minutes.

Bo Svensson then wasted a good chance for the Danes after 12 minutes, heading Krohn-Dehli's corner over the crossbar from close range.

Nicklas Bendtner was the next to try his luck for the visitors but curled his effort from 20 yards over the crossbar, while Eriksen also fired high of the mark from the edge of the penalty area as the half-hour approached.

Iceland had weathered the storm well and Aron Gunnarsson tried to give them the lead with a right-footed drive which flew over the goal, before Eidur Gudjohnsen warmed the palms of goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen with his low shot.

Gudjohnsen had another chance to break the deadlock two minutes before the break with a close-range header which had to be swept clear by Svensson.

Denmark took control once more at the start of the second half but had little to show for their possession apart from a weak effort by Niki Zimling which was comfortably held by Magnusson.

That changed in the 61st minute, though, when Zimling provided a pass to Schone and the midfielder hammered a shot into the top-left corner from 25 yards.

The goal was just what the visitors needed and it was no surprise when they added another after 75 minutes. Dennis Rommedahl found space in the area before laying the ball off for Eriksen to provide the finish from 12 yards.
