Katie McCabe rattles the crossbar with a left footed shot from distance with Christensen beaten.

Ireland have started this half with far more intent and tempo to their play

SECOND HALF

The second half between Republic of Ireland Women and Denmark Women has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Republic of Ireland Women and Denmark Women.

44'

Ireland with a rare foray into the Denmark half. McCabe picks the ball up on the left before crossing deep into the box with Payne waiting. Payne is shrugged off the ball by Svava with the ball trailing harmlessly away. 

Ireland struggling to test Christensen at all so far 

39'

The lively Naim with the lob over Maloney who is off her line. The ball looks to be travelling towards an empty net but Diane Caldwell does brillantly to race back and head the ball clear once more. A let off for Ireland but brilliant last ditch defending from Caldwell

38'

Ireland are struggling to keep hold of any ball at all so far. They are working really hard but can't seem to make anything happen past the half way line. 

Denmark are extremely well organised across the pitch and continue to look comfortable so far

32'

Bruun does brilliantly well in the box to turn and test Maloney with a powerful shot towards goal. Maloney pulls off a very good save making the angles tight before scooping the ball up and over the bar for a corner

22'

Ireland free kick whipped into the box from Keenan. It almost finds it's way through to O'Sullivan but Junge clears well and away from danger

20'

Keenan finds Payne over the top with a very good ball. Payne sees Christensen off her line and attempts an audacios chip but her effort sails over the crossbar.

Better from Ireland but still not looking the most confident in possession

15'

Heather Payne does well to win the ball back from Veje close to her own goal. She hits a cross first time in search of Barrett but Boye reacts quickest scooping the ball clear

14'

Another dangerous move from Denmark. Naim shimmys past Louise Quinn but her effort close to goal is tame leaving Maloney to gather

9'

GOAL!

Nicoline Sorensen (Denmark Women) scores.

Bruun and Svava link up well down the left. Svava plays a perfectly weighted ahead of Bruun who gets past Keenan before whipping a ball into the box.

It somehow finds it's way right through to Sorensen who manages to inch the ball past Maloney at the back post

Denmark are passing the ball around very well across the midfield and look comfortable so far

6'

Even enough start here. Denise O'Sullivan had a half effort of a cross from the right a few moments ago but with little to aim at the ball is calmly gathered by Christensen

3'

In terms of World Rankings here

Denmark currently occupying an impressive 14th place

Ireland currently sit in 31st place

Denmark had a very impressive qualifying campaign for the Euros winning all but one of their matches and drawing the last
