Dennis Rommedahl was in inspired form, scoring one and setting up the other as Denmark eased to a 2-0 victory against Iceland to get their UEFA EURO 2008™ Group F campaign off to a winning start.
Iceland went into the game on the back of a morale-boosting 3-0 victory in Northern Ireland on Saturday but were soon brought down to earth in Reykjavik. Rommedahl was the architect of many of their problems, with the winger giving the Danes a dream start with the opener on five minutes, latching on to Christian Poulsen's pinpoint pass and striding clear of the Iceland back line before slotting past Árni Arason in the home goal.
Arason did well to keep out Thomas Kahlenberg's fierce drive from distance soon after but was again helpless when Jon Dahl Tomasson tucked in Rommedahl's teasing low cross just after the half-hour. Despite Eidur Gudjohnsen's constant probing, Iceland offered few signs of working a way back into the match which descended into a fractious affair, although Gunnar Heidar Thorvaldsson did force Thomas Sørensen into a point-blank save. The keeper also reacted well to keep out Gudjohnsen's clever free-kick midway through the second half as Morten Olsen's side eased to victory.
