Hosts Sweden were held by Denmark in an exciting UEFA Women's EURO 2013 Group A match thanks to two Stina Petersen penalty saves.

Linköpings FC supplied three starters for the hosts, but it was one of their two Denmark players, Mariann Gajhede Knudsen, that opened the scoring midway through the first half. Club-mate Nilla Fischer headed an equaliser soon after. Denmark were then relieved when Petersen stopped Lotta Schelin's 67th-minute penalty and five minutes from the end she repeated the trick from Kosovare Asllani.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Bibiana Steinhaus brings a pulsating match to a close in Gothenburg. Denmark took the lead through Mariann Knudsen's fine strike just before the half-hour mark but were pegged back by a Nilla Fischer header. Sweden then went on to enjoy the better of the second half but will be cursing the profligacy that saw them miss two penalties as the match ended 1-1.

  • Penalty
    85
    Asllani (Sweden) misses from the penalty spot.
    Sweden are awarded their second spot kick of the match when Theresa Nielsen handles in the box. Kosovare Asllani takes responsibility this time, but she - like Lotta Schelin before her - is denied by Stina Petersen. What a half the Denmark goalkeeper has had.
