Alberto Aquilani came off the bench to salvage a 2-2 draw for already qualified Italy and dent Denmark's hopes of securing second spot in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group B.

Morten Olsen's team were on the verge of a crucial victory after Nicklas Bendtner struck twice to wipe out Pablo Osvaldo's opener. However, as the clock ticked down, Aquilani levelled to leave Denmark trailing Bulgaria in third by virtue of an inferior goal difference with one game to play.
