Denmark vs Belgium: as it happened

Match in brief

Belgium attacked from the off and sent out an early warning sign when Yannick Carrasco's free-kick hit the woodwork. Just seconds later the visitors were in front when Denayer pounced for his first international goal from Mertens' corner.

Mertens doubled the lead with a quarter of an hour remaining, side-footing in from close range after the forward was quickest to react to Kasper Schmeichel's save from Youri Tielemans. Denmark rarely threatened, with Christian Eriksen forcing Simon Mignolet into his only save of the match midway through the first half.
