Denmark Beat Australia 2-0 in Final Warm-up

Copenhagen, Jun 3 (IANS): Denmark' s national football team beat Australia 2-0 in its final warm-up match ahead of the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament at the Parken Stadium.

Danish team captain Daniel Agger hammered in the first goal via a penalty kick, to put the Danish team ahead 1-0 just half an hour into the first half. The Danes sealed the match with a second goal 20 minutes into the second half, when centre back Andreas Bjelland shot a loose ball into the Australian net, reported Xinhua.

Denmark started the match as favourites but were tested by Australia, who kept the newly-appointed Danish goalkeeper Stephan Andersen busy, although failed to find the back of the Danish net.

The Danes piled on the pressure after going up 2-0, and never gave the Australians a chance to come back. Danish coach Morten Olsen was unsatisfied despite the win, saying in post-match comments that the team' s defence needed to be strengthened.

The UEFA Euro 2012 football tournament runs from June 8 till July 1 and sees Denmark play Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal in the group stage.
