Early pressure from Denmark as they monopolise the ball in the Irish half. Ireland can't get out. Denmark 0 Republic of Ireland 0 (2)

Pressure relents as Cornelius fouls Clark after a long ball over the top. Denmark 0 Republic of Ireland 0 (3)

Denmark break, Eriksen shapes to shoot from 25 yards out but Christie intercepts and the danger is gone. Ireland were caught out there. Ireland happy to sit deep and let Denmark have the ball. Denmark 0 Republic of Ireland 0 (6)
