Denmark missed the chance to move level on points with UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 4 leaders Serbia after being held to a 1-1 draw by the Faroe Islands.
Holding a game in hand over Serbia, who they host on 7 September, Denmark knew a win in Torshavn against their lowly opponents would have left them perfectly placed to seize the initiative in the play-off race.
This was the hosts' final fixture, however, and they were determined to end on a high. They gave as good as they got in an entertaining first period in which Gilli Sørensen forced Denmark goalkeeper Frederik Rønnow into a good save, while Anders Christiansen struck the upright at the other end.
Morten Wieghorst was smiling at half-time, though, after Simon Makienok turned in Erik Sviatchenko's flick-on, from Kasper Sloth's corner, three minutes before the break.
Despite the hosts' best efforts, the lead looked like being a winnning one – until Rogvi Holm teed up Jacobsen for a fine strike from the edge of the area with three minutes left. The Faroe Islands lost midfielder Karl Løkin to a second yellow in added time but hung on to frustrate Denmark.
