Brazil 3-1 Denmark Bendtner Scores Consilation For Danes *Video Highlights*
Brazil ran out winners of this International Friendly in Hamburg. Brazil’s first goal came from Hulk from 30+ yards, It was a very powerful strike the ball looked to have changed direction in midair which made it hard for Sorensen to keep out. The next two goals from Brazil where arguably two mistakes from Denmark, Firstly Christian Poulsen got caught dwelling on the ball, Brazil’s Oscar centred it and Niki Zimling unfortunately deflected it into his own net it was 2-0 to Brazil. The third goal from Brazil, Agger tried to bring the ball out the back looking for a pass but got caught on the ball before Hulk skipped past his man before calmly slotting past Sorensen.
Denmark were far from their best in the first half, The introduction of Kahlenberg and Rommedahl were what Denmark needed and looked much better in the second period. Featured player Nicklas Bendtner was also a big part of the improvement in the second half coming deep and linking play with his midfield + on one occasion came deep and executed a lovely through ball to Dennis Rommedahl who couldn’t quite take it in his stride. Nicklas Bendtner’s 18th Denmark goal came in the 70th minute, Fine work from Niki Zimling with some neat footwork before squaring to Bendtner for a Tap-In, It looked offside but it counted and Denmark deserved that for their second half performance. No doubt about it though, The Danes will have to start much quicker in Ukraine when they face The Netherlands, Portugal and Germany.
