Euro 2012: Denmark vs Portugal

Yesterday saw two very important games being played. The first one was between Denmark and Portugal. Denmark had won their first game against The Netherlands and Portugal had lost their first game against Germany. To have any hope of progressing in the tournament Portugal had to win this game. They started really well and took a two goal lead through Pepe and Postiga. However, the Danish Dynamite fought back and two goals by Bendtner made it 2-2. Star player Cristiano Ronaldo had a couple of great chances to win it for Portugal, but he missed and left it for Varela to do his dirty work. Portugal wins by three goals to two and is now on level points with Denmark. [38 photos total]
