Group B

Danes punish wasteful Dutch

Michael Krohn-Dehli scored the only goal of the match for Denmark to deliver a disappointing defeat to the Dutch in the "group of death". In the 24th minute Krohn-Dehli beat a defender in the box and tucked the ball in through the legs of the keeper against the run of play. Robben struck the post when Danish keeper Andersen gave the ball away to him in the 36th minute and as the Dutch wasted several more opportunities Denmark held on to pick up 3 vital points.

Krohn-Dehli delivers for Denmark

Gomez gives Germany the nod

Germany got off to a winning start with a Mario Gomez header against Portugal. In a cagey first half Pepe came the closest when he struck the underside of the German bar on the stroke of half time, but in the 72nd minute Gomez headed a cross back into the far corner past the diving Patricio to break the deadlock. Neuer kept out Ronaldo and Varela in the last 10 minutes to secure the German win.
