    • 90+3' There goes the final whistle! A 2-1 win for the Danes. Fully deserved victory. Well worth their win. They keep alive their hopes of a spot in the last four.
    • 89' Three minutes to be added to the match.
    • 88' Danes winning every second ball, every 50-50 and that is why they are going to win this game. Can't recall a chance for Belarus in this second period.
    • 87' Gutor claims a long ball from the back. The Danes making sure every man is behind the ball. All or nothing for Belarus now.
    • 86' Wass tries his luck, but lifts that shot well over the bar. Poor attempt really. A tired one too perhaps.
    • 85' Politevich takes Kardrii out of the play and he is booked for that effort. Free-kick to the Danes.
    • 84' Denmark trying to keep the ball as they seek to run down the clock. Eriksen robbed around 25 yards out, but Wass wins it back. Belarus being pressed back.
    • 83' Belarus continue to knock the ball short. Not yet ready to go long. Replays show that Wass was taken out. Should have been a penalty.
    • 82' Fine tackle by Polyakov to deny Wass a scoring chance. He looked set to pull the trigger. Had to make that challenge.
    • 81' Dragun trying to open his box of tricks, but the ball deflects off a couple of bodies and back to Andersen.
    • 80' Belarus trying to engineer an opening, but Sivakov is forced to make a strong challenge on the attacking Nielsen.
    • 79' Nicolai Jorgensen is going to depart to be replaced by Mads Fenger. A standing ovation for him.
    • 78' Rekish with a free-kick out wide for the visiting side. Goes long, but Politevich can't get on the end of the delivery. Danes looking assured at the back.
    • 77' Andersen comes out of his goal to hammer the ball long. Solid goalkeeping from him. Belarus on the attack.
    • 76' Kasper Povlsen is wheeled on to take over from Jensen for the Danes.
    • 75' Perepecko departs to be replaced by Nekhaychik for Belarus.
    • 74' Great cross from Nielsen, but Kadrii can only nod into the sidenetting. So close to the killer third goal.
    • 73' Danes looking to see this out from a long way out. Could do with another goal to settle the nerves. Belarus trying to force a few bodies forward, but Denmark hit on the break.
    • 72' Eriksen showing off his considerable skills. He is a joy to watch. The way he can drift beyond men is like Michael Laudrup back in his heydey.
    • 71' Heading for a nervy finish to this Group A on Saturday if this result stays the same. Will be a straight fight between the Danes and Belarus for second place.
    • 70' Little more than the Danes deserve for their exertions in this second half. They have been the better side. That shot from Jorgensen flew into the net from 25 yards out.
    • 69' GOAL FOR DENMARK! Heading for the final 20 minutes as Nicolai Jorgensen slams home a stunning swerving shot. No chance for Gutor and the Danes have the lead.
    • 68' Perepecko tries to curl the ball into the top left-hand corner, but that is over the bar.
    • 67' Wass goes for goal from 25 yards out. Low and hard shot, but an easy enough save for Gutor.
    • 66' A lot of loose balls bobbing around the air before Nielsen picks up. Wass is then tackled by Perepecko. Most frustration for the Danes.
    • 65' Denmark desperate for a win to keep alive their hopes here. Kadrii picks the loose ball up, but can only thread through a loose pass. Chance gone.
    • 64' Polyakov misses the cross from Wass, but no damage done as Belarus get the ball out. The visiting side really hemmed in.
    • 63' Belarus giving the ball away too cheaply at the moment as Sivakov's hopeful ball is cleared by a red shirt.
    • 62' A long throw-in from Mathias Jorgensen, but he can't beat the first man before Albaek is booked for fouling Perepecko.
    • 61' Bashkim Kadrii is wheeled on to take over from Dalsgaard. First change of the night for the Danes.
    • 60' The Danes continue on the offensive here with Eriksen and Jensen very much to the fore. Belarus have hardly been seen going forward since they scored.
    • 59' Terrific run and shot by Jensen. Really impressive stuff, but that is another fine stop by Gutor in the goal. Excellent stop again.
    • 58' Albaek and Jensen exchange passes in the middle of the park. Denmark on the attack.
    • 57' Skavysh immediately involved as he chases a long Sivakov pass, but Andersen comes out to collect the ball.
    • 56' Change coming here for the visiting team as Voronkov departs to be replaced by Maksim Skavysh.
    • 55' Eriksen trying to burst clear, but Sivakov doing enough to frustrate the Danes there. This is looking good for the Danes. Better team in this half.
    • 54' 'Zanka' Jorgensen guilty of bringing down Voronkov, who has not been seen much from an attacking perspective.
    • 53' Nielsen deemed to be offside. He continues to play on the shoulders of the opposing players.
    • 52' The Danes with five shots on goal compared to the one from Belarus. Slowly but surely, the Danes starting to crank this up a few levels.
    • 51' Nicolai Jorgensen goes for goal from 25 yards. Really got hold of that shot, but straight at Gutor who saved with some ease.
    • 50' The Danish fans starting to warm to this as Gutor misses a throw-in from Mathias Jorgensen before Belarus get the ball out.
    • 49' He ghosted past about four Belarus players like they were not there. Impressive, impressive stuff from Eriksen.
    • 48' Stunning run by Eriksen! Superb stuff, but an equally impressive stop by Gutor after he uncorked a right foot shot. Almost 2-1 to the home side.
    • 47' Change for Belarus to bring you news of as Dmitri Rekish replaces Nikita Bukatkin.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second half.
    • 45' Nothing added as we reach the break all square. Wide open in the second half. A really difficult one to call.
    • 44' Not going to be much time added to this first period.
    • 43' Denmark really needing the three points, but looks like it is going to be 1-1 at the break.
    • 41' Politevich heads the ball against the hand of Boilesen as it runs behind. Appeals for a penalty, but doesn't even get a corner. Shocking decision.
    • 40' Denmark with 58% of possession, but the visitors are looking dangerous on the break as Dragun slips away from his marker, but the Danes deal with it.
    • 39' Wass tries a shot from miles out. Ball sails well wide of the target. All gone a bit quiet among the home crowd. Not exactly a hostile environment.

    • 35' Baga needing a bit of a treatment after taking a sore one in a collision with Albaek in the midfield area.
    • 34' Albaek tries a pass through the middle, but straight through to Gutor in the visiting goal.
    • 33' Sivakov goes from goal from distance, but well over the bar. He is needing no invitation to have a crack at the target.
    • 32' That was late and wild on Eriksen. No complaints about being the first man into the book of the evening.
    • 31' Bukatkin has been booked for a wreckless late diving challenge in midfield. He is suspended for the next match.
    • 29' Glorious chance for the Danes! Nielsen burst through on goal, but he prods the ball straight at Gutor. Should have scored.
    • 28' Crowd a bit more studious now after those couple of goals in as many minutes. Belarus happy to go all the way back to Gutar in their goal.
    • 27' Eriksen whacks the bar with the corner, but the keeper Gutor was being impeded by the home players.
    • 26' Nicolai Jorgensen picking the ball up wide. Throws it long, but Polyakov heads it behind for a corner to Denmark.
    • 25' Strong surging run by Dalsgaard. Gets the cross over. Clips the top of the bar aided by a touch from Gutor, but no corner awarded. Another poor decision.
    • 24' Boilesen goes down under pressure from Veretilo. Denmark needing to invite to go down.

    • 22' Baha showing some lovely awareness, but his cross is this time knocked behind by Albaek. Corner to Belarus.

    • 18' GOAL FOR BELARUS! Baga rounds Andersen before slipping the ball into the net. A cool finish and the visiting side have the lead.
    • 16' Denmark on the ball, but plenty of white shirts back. Baga takes a sore one from Boilesen. Free-kick to the visiting team.
    • 15' Boilesen takes a tumble down his left flank, but referee waves play on. More fine play by Veretilo to watch that run.
    • 14' Veretilo making sure Nicolai Jorgensen can't get a cross in out wide. Goalkick to Belarus.
    • 13' Eriksen manages to get his shot over the wall, but easy enough take for Gutor in the Belarus goal.

    • 11' Dalsgaard meets the corner from Eriksen, but Belarus have plenty of bodies back to deal with the danger. Belarus settle back into that lovely passing rythmn.
    • 10' Wass knocks the cross from Erikseon behind his own goal. A corner to the Danes.
