Denmark and Portugal have to play a run-off, but both of them still risks elimination. Portugal wins 3-2 and hooks Denmark with three point: the last matchday will be deciding but after having seen his rivals Netherlands can be more optimistic. Sunday 17th Denmark will met Germany, Portugal will play against Netherlands. Three goals have been scored in the first half: Portugal advantage comes after a header of Pepe at 24’, Postiga doubles at 36’ after an assist of Nani while Denmark shortens with an other header of Bendtner at 41’ on suggestion of Krohn-Dehli. Two incredible mistakes of Cristiano Ronaldo characterize second half, the latter few minutes before the 2-2 by Bendtner. But at 87’ Varela, in from three minutes, scores third Portoguese gol with the right, and Group B is now a brain-teaser.
