        Denmark 2-1 Sweden

        Eriksen's late goal seals Denmark's victory over Sweden

        Denmark continued their Euro 2024 preparations with a thrilling 2-1 victory over their neighbours Sweden at the Parken.

        Pierre-Emile Højbjerg opened the scoring in the second minute, finishing from close range after a low corner from Christian Eriksen. 

        Sweden equalised when Alexander Isak slammed home a loose ball following a blocked shot by Jens Cajuste.

        The first half remained intense, with Denmark nearly regaining the lead through Alexander Bah and a powerful free-kick from Eriksen, both saved by Robin Olsen.

        In the second half, Rasmus Højlund came close with a curling shot just past the far post and Eriksen missed a golden chance with 15 minutes remaining, taking too long to shoot.

        Just as a draw seemed likely, Eriksen curled in a stunning goal from the edge of the area in the dying moments to secure the win. 

        Next up, Denmark will host Norway, while Sweden will take on Serbia, with both games set for Saturday.

Højbjerg's early goal set the tone for the game, and Eriksen's winning goal in the dying moments was pure magic. Can't wait to see them take on Norway next!
