That's full time! 1-1 and another dent to Portugal's chances of qualifying from group one. Denmark played a typically well organised game and Portugal now face an uphill task to get to South Africa.
All the Danes are back! Tommason is there to get a block in as Portugal go for broke!
Nani on the right... he crosses... Gomes gets up... what a save!
Shocking play from Nani who couldn't keep the ball in with no pressure on him at all! The fourth official signals four extra minutes.
Substitution Jakob Poulsen Jesper Gronkjaer
Great block from Jacobsen! Gomes' shot was on target, brilliant defending to keep his side in the match. It's all Portugal. Poulsen goes off for Jesper Gronkjaer.
What a waste from Bosingwa! Ronaldo played him the perfect ball and he couldn't get a cross to the billion white shirts waiting inside the box.
Yellow Card Stephan Andersen (Duplicate - do not use)
1-1! Liedson knocks in from a corner before the keeper is booked for holding onto the ball. There is still time left for Portugal!
Another shot from Ronaldo and another miss. Poulsen did well to tackle Nani down by the corner flag, Ronaldo picked up the ball and scuffed a shot closer to the corner flag than the goal.
CRUNCH! Pepe goes up for a header from a corner, he misses the ball and heads Andersen instead.
Nani is swapping wings at will. He has a low shot saved by the keeper but looks very dangerous, Portugal are getting closer.
Substitution Raúl Meireles Nuno Gomes
Ronaldo makes way for Deco to have a go at free kicks. Different player, same ball over the bar! Nuno Gomes comes on at the expense of Meireles who has had a brilliant game.
Rommedahl hustles the left back, gets his cross in and Tomasson heads wide. That could have been game over for the Portuguese.
Another miss! Good work from Nani and Ronaldo made space for Deco who sent his shot over the bar!
Great tackle from Pepe. Tomasson's slight lack of control allowed the centre back to get in a vital challenge. Finger nails are being bitten on that Portuguese bench!
Oooooooooo! That was Ronaldo's closest free kick yet. The dip was almost perfect as Andersen had blatantly given up on saving it.
Nani's substitutional partner, Liedson, is causing all sorts of problems for the Danish defence, should have done a lot better with a header there as Andersen catches easily.
Substitution Simão Nani
Nani comes onto the pitch for Portugal as they look to get more men forward with every attack.
The ball drops to Deco on the edge of the area, blocked shot! It falls to Ronaldo, blocked shot! Portugal's frustration is clear.
Portugal are playing the ball around nicely but leaving huge gaps as they search for a goal.
Bendtner, Tommason, Bendtner.... the shot is blocked. Classic one-two there from the Danish strikers.
Substitution M. Silberbauer William Kvist Jorgensen
William Jorgensen comes on for Silberbauer who has been virtually anonymous in the entire match. The coach clearly isn't looking to defend 1-0.
Offside! Duda curled a ball around the back four for Ronaldo who squared for Simao... but the flag goes up.
How has it not gone in!!! Meireles puts in a beautiful cross, Simao gets something on it... two defenders scramble over the ball as Ronaldo throws a foot just as the keeper gathers.
Substitution Martin Jorgensen Hjalte Norregaard
Ronaldo stands over the ball, he runs up... bang, into the wall... he gets the rebound! Straight at the keeper! Jorgensen makes way for Hjalte Norregaard.
Yellow Card Simon Kjaer
Bad foul! Ronaldo danced past Kjar who blatantly trips him. Yellow card.
Meireles to Deco, Deco to defender.... HOOFED AWAY!
Rommedahl!!! So close! Bendtner chested down another long ball and Rommedahl was there to pick up the pieces, the ball whistles inches past the post.
Meireles made a good run in from the wing but Ronaldo's pass was just a little behind him. Portugal are growing into the game but need to make any pressure count.
Ronaldo threatened to get in behind with his pace there but Jacobsen got across to hoof away the danger.
CLOSE!!! Duda curls just wide after a well worked free kick with Deco.
What was Poulsen doing there!? He needs to be careful he doesn't get a nose bleed being so far up the pitch! He can't get the ball through to Bendtner as Portugal look to break.
Ooooooooo! After a foul on Bendtner, Rommedahl sends over a free kick which is only just cleared by Bosingwa.
Ouch!!! Foul on Tomasson who dropped off the back four, the referee wastes no time in getting out his yellow card.
Yellow Card Liedson
Michael Silberbauer fires out a pin point pass to Rommedahl who is well tackled by Duda. Great start by Denmark!
Substitution Tiago Liedson
The second half kicks off and the Portuguese will have to be a lot stronger on their finishing if they are to win this game and bag the three vital points they need to get higher up the Group one table.
That's half time and the end toa first half of good football. Portugal are still in this but the Danes looked well organised and good on the break. It all makes for a cracking second 45!
Simao misses again! Duda's ball had just a little too much pace, the control was good but the shot was not.
Portugal are on the ropes now. Rommedahl is toying with them, all over the pitch. A strong challenge from Carvalho clears the danger.
Goal Nicklas Bendtner
GOOOOOOALLLLLLL! 1-0 Denmark! Bendtner chests down from a long ball and then smashes it past Eduardo. Game on!
Counter attack from the Danes! Rommedahl switched wings, got the ball from a defender, ignored every one else and blasted a shot wide.
Lars Jacobsen got forward well from right back, Rommedahl dropped inside to give him the outlet, Bendtner made the run but the ball never arrived.
It's Bosinga down the right again. He's dancing along like he should be on Strictly Come Dancing, great challenge by Poulsen who had enough!
Ronaldo fires it in but the Danish defence do well to clear. They can have a rest for a few seconds.
Tiago is bundled to the ground after a good piece of skill. Dangerous free kick here!
That seemed like Tiago's first touch of the ball, but what a good one! He fired it into Ronaldo who passed to Deco who shot along the ground at the keeper. The pressure is building!
Careful! Simon Kjaer gives Ronaldo a cheeky push but no one seems to see.
Brilliant! Deco, Simao, Ronaldo, Simao back to Ronaldo, effort just over!
Ooooooooooo! So close. Bendtner dropped off his defender well and tried to play Tommason in behind. Ricardo Carvalho was having none of it.
Shocking! Ronaldo did well to hold off Jakob Poulsen to flick a ball out to Duda who had sprinted up on the left, unfortunately the cross went straight out for a goal kick.
Deco plays a lovely ball out to Bosingwa who is controlling the right flank, he puts the ball right into the danger area but there is no one there to take advantage. Portugal seem to have settled down.
Simao misses as well! The ball was played in from the left, there was not a defender near him and he sticks it straight at the keeper.
35 yards out... Ronaldo places the ball, steps back and fires it straight into the arms of Stephan Andersen!
And again! Portugal are passing well, it's sent out to Bosingwa who nudges it past Poulsen who stands firm, he knew what he was doing there.
Bad miss by the referee this time. Deco had the ball and was about to ping a killer pass but there was a well timed kick from a big Danish defender. The Portuguese play maker does not looked pleased.
Close but no cigar for Simao. Portugal go straight up the other end and he curls a shot just wide. Both defences need to tighten up here.
What a miss!!! Bendtner got a ball in when it seemed a lost cause, it bounced off of Pepe and there was Martin Jorgensen to blaze over from all of four yards.
Corner whipped in for Denmark, Bendtner goes up from a run but Alves heads clear.
Blazing shot from Christian Poulsen... if he wasn't a defender then he may have got a little bit closer, no trouble there for Eduardo in goal.
It's Ronaldo again, he gets the ball, beats the last man, Christensen is running back.... he just gets a foot in the way otherwise that was 1-0!
Anders Christensen brings the ball out of defence, pings a ball out to Rommedahl, instant control but no through ball. Good pressure from the home side.
It's Rommedahl! He's in! Crosses to John Dahl Tommason! The flag is up... no goal.
CHANCE! Ronaldo picks the ball up on the left, drops the shoulder and cuts back in... BANG! Just wide.
The Danes are pressing well. They are pressing all over the pitch. Bruno Alves sends one into row z, not sure that was meant to be a pass!
The crowd cheers as a ball from Cristiano Ronaldo flies out of play as it was meant for Jose Bosingwa. There wasn't £80 million of quality in that ball.
Ooooooooo! Denmark go straight up to the other end and Bendtner can't send his header on target and watches as it dribbles out of play.
Bad control from Simao after Raul Meireles delivers a short, sharp cross. Could have been the opener there.
It's Denmark who create the first half chance. Dennis Rommedahl sprinted down the right, put in a cross but Nicklas Bendtner handled.
The referee blows the whistle and the match is under way.
