Nicklas Bendtner Continues World-Class International Form With Another Goal For Denmark As They Scrape Past Finland *See Goal Here *Video*
Nicklas Bendtner is showing some frightening form for his International side Denmark at present, In a poor first half for the Dane’s the game had a typical friendly feeling to the game, with both sides not in top gear and happy just to keep ball at times. N.B didn’t really get that much involved in the first half and was having a quiet game, but was willing to come deep and link play with the attacking midfielders of Denmark.
The starting XI had alot of changes and at times it looked as though the Dane’s where lacking some creativity and pace on the wings, with C-Eriksen and Dennis Rommedahl both not starting. The Finns’ took a shock lead on the 18 minute, Denmark got caught overplaying in their own half and it was one pass too many as Michael Krohn-Dehli gave a ball away inside his own half and as Lindegaard saved the rebound fell straight to Eremenko who side-footed in. It was like this going into the half time break.
A Two goal salvo, Firstly, from a set piece, L-Schone swinging in a dangerous cross before Liverpool centre half, captain on the night Daniel Agger, finished nicely. Then Mikkelsen capitalised on a Finnish mistake, and spotted Bendtner. Featured player N.B-52 still had alot to do but took 3 important touches 1 to race away from the Finland defence showing nice turn of pace, the second to steady himself and take aim and he found a gap low n hard past the keeper. It was Bendtner’s 5th goal in 5 games for Denmark and his 17th Denmark International Goal, See goal here:http://sporten.tv2.dk/fodbold/article.php/id-45670363:m%C3%A5ltv-bendtner-banker-dk-foran.html he can’t be stopped at the moment for his country and is showing people the ability in matches that he’s always had. Some were quick to have criticsized N.B, Personally from seeing him play in the Arsenal reserves side in 2005, you could see what he was all about, he was always tall but not your typical tall striker, he had the touch and technique and a decent turn of pace, some questioned the work rate but he scored 22 goals in 27 games in the Reserve League South and getting many assists along the way for poacher – Arturo Lupoli. Some may forget how young Nicklas is, the guy is still only 23 yrs old and has done alot on the International stage, scoring in a World Cup already against Cameroon and hitting a Uefa Champions League Hat-trick for The Gunners’. I’d say there is still alot more to come from the Danish forward.
