Commentary

Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game. Until next time, goodbye!
Denmark travel to face the Faroe Islands on Saturday, while Scotland host Moldova.
There goes the final whistle! Denmark extend their lead at the top of their World Cup Qualifying group with a fourth win from four games thanks to a quickfire double from their wing-backs. With 14 minutes played, Wass was picked out by Hojbjerg and glanced a header across goal and into the far corner to open the scoring. Just a minute later, Damsgaard fed Maehle in the box and the left wing-back slotted through Gordon's legs to double Denmark's advantage in a dominant first-half performance. Scotland improved after the break, but still only managed two shots on target and their best chance saw Schmeichel produce a stunning save to deny Fraser from close range. It finishes 2-0 to Denmark!
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: DENMARK 2-0 SCOTLAND
J. Lindstrøm
M. Damsgaard
90' + 3' With the final whistle just moments away, Damsgaard goes off for Lindstrom as Hjumland runs the clock down.
L. Ferguson
B. Gilmour
90' + 1' Clarke makes a late change now, bringing Gilmour off for Ferguson in stoppage time.
88' SAVE! Hojbjerg bursts down the left and stands a cross up to the back post. It's just a fraction too high and ends up with Wind, who sends it back into the middle for Hojbjerg to head at goal, but Gordon pushes it away!
D. Turnbull
K. McLean
85' Clarke also makes a change of his own, bringing McLean off for Turnbull as the game draws to a close.
M. Daramy
A. Olsen
85' The final substitution of the three sees Hjulmand replace Skov with Daramy.
C. Nørgaard
T. Delaney
85' Delaney is the second Denmark player to be substituted, with Norgaard taking his place in midfield in a like-for-like switch.
J. Stryger Larsen
D. Wass
85' Hjulmand makes a triple-change now, replacing Wass with Stryger Larsen at right wing-back in his first alteration.
82' Scotland have shown intent and have been pushing for the last 10 minutes or so, while Denmark have been a little passive and have perhaps become complacent.
80' SAVE! What a save from Schmeichel! Robertson gets away down the left and his low cross somehow makes its way through to Dykes with his back to goal six yards out. The striker lays off for Fraser, who steers a first-time effort towards the bottom-left corner, but Schmeichel somehow gets down to keep it out!
77' WIDE! Gilmour fires an excellent cross into the middle from a deep position on the right following a corner and Hanley rises highest to meet it, but he can't direct his header and it flies just wide of the target!
75' Wind takes the ball down with his back to goal and under pressure from Hanley and looks to turn, but he's stopped in his tracks by the whistle and is penalised for controlling the ball with his arm.
73' Scotland work the ball dangerously down their right and it's worked to McGregor on the edge of the box who takes a touch to set himself before having a go at goal, but his effort is tame and too central and Schmeichel makes a comfortable save.
R. Christie
C. Adams
71' Clark makes his second change with a little under 20 minutes to play and a two-goal deficit still to overturn. Adams is the man to be replaced, with Christie coming on in support of Dykes in attack.
J. Wind
Y. Poulsen
68' Hjulmand makes a change now, but it's not Wass who comes off. Instead, Poulsen is replaced up front by Wind.
65' Despite continuing to grimace in pain, Wass seems intent on running off his knock and has been given the green light to return to the fray.
63' Wass has gone down holding his foot and it doesn't look like he will be able to continue. There's a flurry of activity on the Denmark bench as a potential replacement is readied.
61' SAVE! Delaney has time and space on the edge of the box to take a touch, set himself and hit a low drive across goal that Gordon just gets a hand to on the stretch. The ball is loose and Poulsen races towards it for a tap-in, but Gordon recovers in time to smother ahead of the forward.
58' Scotland have been better since the restart. They've prevented Denmark from finding their rhythm and have looked a little more threatening going forward.
56' Poulsen is the latest Denmark player to show his frustration with the referee as a free-kick goes against him for a foul on Hanley. Poulsen clearly feels it was an innocent tangle of legs, but the official disagrees.
54' Maehle is furious as he's penalised for handball. The left wing-back surged into the box down the left before pulling out a Cruyff turn to work a yard of space for a cross. The Dane slipped as he turned and put his hand to the turf to stabilise himself and was deemed to have made contact with the ball in the process.
52' A Denmark corner comes out to Wass just outside the box and to the left of goal. He lets it bounce before attempting an ambitious half-volley, but gets it all wrong and smashes it high and well wide.
50' Tierney has dropped in to replace McKenna as the left-sided centre-back in the three, while Robertson has swapped over to his favoured left flank and Fraser has shifted out to right wing-back, while Dykes partners Adams up front.
48' CLOSE! Gilmour is fed on the left edge of the box and sets himself on his right foot before driving a low shot towards the bottom-left corner, but he drags it agonisingly wide of the target!
46' We're back underway for the second half!
L. Dykes
S. McKenna
46' Clarke makes a positive change at half-time, swapping a defender for a striker as McKenna is replaced by Dykes.
While Hjulmand can be pleased with how his men controlled the game, Clarke has a lot of work to do after a dismal half for Scotland. The visitors were blunt in attack, failing to register a shot, and managed less than 36% possession whilst looking far from secure at the back. 
There goes the half-time whistle! Denmark scored twice in quick succession with Wass' header after 14 minutes followed up just a minute later by Maehle, who slotted through Gordon's legs after a neat pass from Damsgaard. The hosts completely dominated Scotland thereafter and deservedly lead. It's 2-0 to Denmark at the break.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: DENMARK 2-0 SCOTLAND
45' + 1' Fraser goes over the trailing leg of Kjaer as he works the ball forward and wins a free-kick in a promising position, but Hanley fouls Wass as he wins the header at the back post and the chance is lost.
44' Fraser slips the ball in behind and Adams charges it down, but Andersen gets there ahead of him and manages to pass it back to Schmeichel despite the pressure.
42' Denmark are in no hurry as half-time approaches. They're still probing and searching for a third goal, but at a leisurely pace.
40' Scotland have been camped in their own half for most of the game so far and are really struggling to get out. They're simply soaking up wave after wave of Denmark attacks and are offering next to no attacking threat.
38' There's an altercation between Maehle and Hanley as the latter bumps the former off the ball and into the advertising hoardings. The referee sprints over to intervene before things escalate and gives the pair a talking-to, but no cards are shown.
36' Christensen launches the ball into the left channel for Poulsen to chase and he reaches it at the byline, but Robertson and Cooper arrive to intervene and the Denmark forward ends up committing a foul in his eagerness to regain possession.
34' Denmark have lowered the tempo of the game for a spell, passing the ball safely between themselves as they take a collective breather in possession. They're in complete control of proceedings.
32' SAVE! McLean fouls Wass and the right wing-back dusts himself off to take the free-kick. His delivery is superb, curling to the back post where Poulsen meets it and steers it goalwards on the volley, but Gordon is there to make the save from a tight angle!
30' Denmark are controlling the game well and are looking threatening as they move the ball into dangerous areas quickly. On this occasion, the ball in behind for Damsgaard is a little heavy and forces him wide, taking the sting out of the attack.
28' Denmark win a corner down their right off McKenna and it's lofted to the far side of the box where Delaney is given the space to take the ball down on his chest. However, he's subsequently closed down and then gives away a free-kick as he battles to keep hold of the ball.
26' Scotland seem hesitant and unsure of themselves. Despite being two goals down, they've still yet to threaten Schmeichel's goal and don't look particularly secure at the back either.
24' Hojbjerg receives the ball a little over 20 yards from goal and to the left of the target. He shifts the ball to his right and away from his marker before letting fly, but he leans back and fires well over the top.
21' Scotland look stunned. They had been playing conservatively up until the goals but now they must chase the game away from home.
19' Damsgaard has now been directly involved in nine goals in just eight starts for Denmark in all competitions (four goals, five assists) – since his debut in November last year. The only other European player to register at least four goals and four assists is the Netherlands’ Memphis Depay (9 goals, 4 assists).
17' OVER! Skov is fed on the right and cuts inside before sweeping a low pass across the edge of the box that Maehle meets, but he can't keep his first-time effort down and steers it over the bar!
M. Damsgaard
Assist
15' Damsgaard moved the ball quickly and deftly, finding Maehle in the area with a neat pass before the Scotland defence had a chance to set themselves.
J. Mæhle
Goal
15' GOAL!!! MAEHLE DOUBLES THE DANES' LEAD!!! Just a minute after opening the scoring, the hosts play a number of quick interchanges as they work it along the edge of the box from right to left. Damsgaard dinks a clever little ball into the area for Maehle, who finds a pocket of space and takes a touch before prodding through Gordon's legs from a tight angle! It's 2-0 to Denmark now!
P. Højbjerg
Assist
14' The ball was played back to Hojbjerg from the left and the central midfielder lifted his chin and picked out the run of Wass with an accurate, raking pass over the top.
D. Wass
Goal
14' GOAL!!! WASS HEADS DENMARK IN FRONT!!! Hojbjerg picks out a deep diagonal into the right side of the box and Wass gets above Tierney to head across goal and into the far corner past the stranded Gordon! It's 1-0 to Denmark!
12' Denmark work it to the byline down the left and Maehle cuts it back for Skov, who has ghosted into the box, but his first-time effort is blocked away.
9' Poulsen goes down off the ball after a tussle with McKenna. He stays down and is seen to by the medical team, but appears to be fine and is able to carry on. No foul is awarded.
7' Denmark build down their left and the ball breaks loose just outside the box. Poulsen runs onto it and has a go first-time, but gets it all wrong and his swiped effort ends up high and wide.
5' Meanwhile, Hjumland is using Christensen as part of a back three and not a defensive midfielder tonight, with Andersen and Kjaer alongside him.
3' Interestingly, Clarke appears to have deployed captain Robertson on the right, with Tierney operating as the left wing-back.
1' We're underway in Copenhagen!
Scotland have only lost two of their last 15 World Cup qualifying matches (W8 D5) and are unbeaten in each of their last nine since a 3-0 defeat away at England in November 2016.
