Netherlands 2-0 Denmark

An own goal from Denmark defender Daniel Agger in the opening minute of the second half helped Netherlands on their way to victory in the World Cup Group E match.

After a tight first half, the crucial breakthrough came moments after the break as Simon Poulsen tried to head a Robin van Persie cross clear only for the ball to strike Agger on the back and fly past a wrong-footed Thomas Sorensen.

The Dutch wrapped the match up with five minutes left when lively substitute Eljero Elia raced on to a through ball and after his shot struck the post, Dirk Kuyt tapped in the rebound to add gloss to the scoreline.
