Netherlands v Denmark: How it happened


So Denmark pulled off the first big surprise of the tournament with an impressive 1-0 win over the Netherlands.

Lets have an indepth look at how this group B clash unfolded at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv.

Brondby striker Michael Krohn-Dehli claimed the game’s only goal mid-way through the first half thanks to a combination of good fortune and poor defending.

The 29 year old scored against the run of play when he picked up a loose ball close to the penalty area in the 24th minute, made a clever move around Dutch defender John Heitinga and tucked the ball between the legs of Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg from a tight angle.

Billed as Group B’s rank outsiders before the tournament, Morten Olsen’s men next lock horns with Portugal on Wednesday while the Netherlands must avoid defeat against Germany to stay in the competition.
