Bendtner Hits His Second Goal In As Many Games * Video * + Denmark’s Automatic Qualification Hopes Dented
Our featured player scored again last night in the 1-1 draw Denmark claimed in Albania. Olsen’s side will look back at this as 2 massive points dropped and now only lie 3 points ahead of Sweden, who lie in second and 5 ahead of mighty Portugal. Denmark took the lead in the 40th minute after much pressure on the hosts goal.
Christian Poulsen who plays his trade in Serie A, hit a long diagonal ball over the top from near the centre circle, Bendtner then ran onto it and looped his header superbly over the on-rushing keeper it was 0-1 to the visitors – Denmark. Soon after the interval Albania looked a changed side, the manager must have said some harsh words and Albania’s Bogdani crepped in a equaliser it was 1-1.
Not many chances went either way after these goals, with Denmark dominating much of the possesion. Denmark manager Morten Olsen was obviously not happy, baring in mind if Denmark won they would have booked their plane tickets to South Africa next summer.
Danish manager Olsen said
We didn’t play football in the second half. We have to be very disappointed about that. We have to win matches like this. It’s our own fault
