WARSAW, POLAND (AP) - Portugal beats Denmark 3-2 in Lviv, Ukraine in their second Group B match at the European Championship.

Here is a running account of Wednesday’s action. All times are local to Poland.


1957: Ronaldo hugs Varela after the full-time whistle goes and so he should. Portugal is now level on three points with Denmark and is back in control of its own destiny ahead of the last group game against the Netherlands on Sunday. That was one of the best matches of the tournament _ hopefully more of the same at Netherlands vs. Germany, which is coming up soon.


1951: FULL TIME: Denmark 2, Portugal 3


1947: What a game! Portugal is back in front and it’s a goal by the substitute who has only been on the pitch for three minutes. Silvestre Varela is quite fortunate actually, mis-hitting his first attempt but he makes up for it with his second as he lashes a shot into the corner from 12 yards (meters).

1945: GOAL! Denmark 2, Portugal 3 (Varela)


1941: Moments after Ronaldo missed the best of all his chances _ he was one on one with Andersen inside the area and sidefooted wide _ Bendtner grabs his second to make it 2-2. A ball is floated over from the right by Lars Jacobsen to the back post and Bendtner loses his defender and heads past goalkeeper Patricio, who gets a hand to the ball but can’t keep it out. What must Ronaldo be thinking? He should have put Portugal out of sight by now.

(at)PhillipsIan: Shocking miss from Ronaldo. Does he ever play well for Portugal? In a white shirt still, but unrecognizable from the Real Madrid giant. (via Twitter)
