Belgrade, Serbia (SportsNetwork.com) - Nicklas Bendtner scored a pair of goals in the second half to lift Denmark to a 3-1 comeback win at Serbia in Euro 2016 Group I qualifying on Friday.
The Danes entered the contest having lost to Portugal and drawn with Albania in their last two games, and the match didn't get off to a great start for the visitors, who went behind in the fourth minute to a goal from Zoran Tosic.
However, Denmark turned things around over the final 30 minutes with Bendtner and Simon Kjaer scoring three minutes apart to give the visitors a 2-1 lead before Bendtner added a third goal five minutes from time.
The win moves Denmark to the top of the group with seven points from four games, while Portugal climbs into second place after edging Armenia, 1-0, behind a 72nd-minute goal from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Poland continued its strong start to qualifying in Group D by securing a 4-0 win at Georgia to remain three points clear at the top of the table.
The Poles didn't open the scoring until the 51st minute through Kamil Glik, but they added three more goals over the final 20 minutes to cruise home to three points with Grzegorz Krychowiak, Sebastian Mila and Arkadiusz Milik each finding the net.
Germany was in need of a win after dropping points against both Poland and Ireland, and the World Cup champions coasted to a 4-0 win over lowly Gibraltar as Thomas Muller scored twice for the Germans in the first 30 minutes.
The other match in the group saw Scotland notch an important 1-0 win over Ireland thanks to Shaun Maloney's 75th-minute strike, leaving both teams, along with Germany, on seven points.
Group F saw the biggest upset of the day as Faroe Islands traveled to Greece and came away with a 1-0 win thanks to a goal from Joan Simun Edmundsson in the 61st minute.
The Greeks have now earned just one point from four games and drop to the bottom of the group, leaving them in serious trouble.
At the top of the table, Romania moved one point clear of second-place Northern Ireland with a 2-0 home win that saw Paul Papp score both goals in the second half.
Hungary topped Finland, 1-0, in the other contest in the group thanks to a goal from Zoltan Gera six minutes from time, allowing the team to jump into third place.
