STOCKHOLM - Ajax Amsterdam midfielder
Christian Eriksen notched his first international goal to guide
Denmark to a 2-0 win over Iceland in their Euro 2012 qualifier
in Reykjavik on Saturday.
Portugal are top of Group H with 10 points from five games,
ahead of Denmark and Norway on goal difference.
The Danes wasted two early chances to score against Iceland
who were bidding for a first victory over their Nordic rivals.
Striker Nicklas Bendtner shot wide and defender Simon
Poulsen broke into the penalty box only to fire his effort
straight at keeper Stefan Magnusson.
Iceland started pressing either side of half-time but they
were rocked when substitute Lasse Schone put the visitors in
front against the run of play in the 60th minute.
Eriksen then made it 2-0 when he took a pass from Dennis
Rommedahl in the 75th minute and fired the ball home from the
edge of the box.
Eidur Gudjohnsen and Heidar Helguson went close several
times for Iceland but could not find a way past Thomas Sorensen
