The talking point before the friendly with Denmark was that controversial striker David Goodwillie was selected by Craig Levein. Captain Darren Fletcher did not make the team as he was recovering from a virus. The first proper chance of the match fell to the Danes after 20 minutes when Eriksen layed off a ball to Rommedahl and his shot was saved by McGregor. A minute later Scotland took the lead when substitute Don Cowie was fouled on the edge of the box. The resulting free-kick was taken by Charlie Adam who fired the ball into the penalty area only for the ball to be deflected into his own net by Kvist. Ten minutes later Adam fouled Krohn-Dehli out on the left. Eriksen then floated the ball into the middle over everyone, including McGregor who was caught off his line to level the scores at 1-1. A few minutes before half time McGregor pulled off a great save from a low shot by Krohn-Dehli. A minute later Scotland took the lead. Cowie played a great ball to Miller who was out on the left wing. Miller then put a great cross into the back post for Robert Snodgrass to dive in and head the ball past Danish keeper Sorensen to score his first international goal for Scotland in his third cap. In the second half the Danes continue to press Scotland, and a long distance shot by Schone almost caught McGregor off guard as he parried the ball over the bar. Just on the hour mark, substitute Craig Mackail-Smith almost scored his first goal for Scotland when a Danish back pass stuck in the mud. Sorensen raced out and saved Mackail-Smith's shot. McGregor made further saves from Krohn-Dehli and Schone before Barry Bannan had an excellent shot saved by Sorensen. Scotland held on for the win, which was their first win over the Danes in six games since 1975, and also the first time they scored against them since then. Something that made the victory more impressive was the fact that the Danes were ranked 40 places higher than Scotland in the FIFA Rankings.
