EURO 2012 : Portugal grab late winner to beat Denmark

Substitute Silvestre Varela's scored a stunning late goal to give Portugal a 3-2 victory over Denmark.

Pepe's powerful near-post header put Portugal ahead, before Helder Postiga smashed in a volley from close range to give Portugal a 2-0 lead.

Nicklas Bendtner pulled a goal back before the break, taking advantage of a passive offside call to subsequently header in from close range.

Denmark pressed forward in the second half, and were rewarded with an 80th minute equaliser from Bendtner, before Varela struck in the 87th minute to claim victory.
