Denmark stroll into second

Bosnia-Herzegovina 0-3 Denmark Denmark clinch second place in Group 2 with a comfortable win.

Denmark clinched second place in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 2 courtesy of a 3-0 away win against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Travnik.

Bechmann inspiration
Striker Tommy Bechmann produced an inspired performance in a match the visitors dominated from start to finish, scoring twice within the first 25 minutes to virtually settle the encounter.

Dominant display
The Esbjerg fB forward opened the scoring in the 14th minute and he doubled the lead eight minutes later. An own goal by Haris Tahirovic shortly before half-time effectively sealed the win and left the home side with an impossible task after the interval.

Jurcevic red card
In front of their home supporters, who had hoped to see their side win to keep their own faint qualification hopes alive, Bosnia-Herzegovina struggled to cope with the visitors' pressure and lost defender Mladen Jurcevic to a red card in the 60th minute.

Mission impossible
The home team struggled valiantly and a relaxed and confident Denmark were content to run down the clock to secure an impressive result. Bosnia-Herzegovina finished in third place in the standings on 13 points, while group winners Norway's 5-0 win against Luxembourg condemned Denmark to second position.
