AALBORG, Denmark (AP) — Christian Poulsen and Thomas Enevoldsen scored to lead World Cup-bound Denmark over Senegal 2-0 Thursday night on the eve of its departure for South Africa.
Poulsen got the first goal in the 27th minute off a pass from Jon Dahl Tomasson, and Enevoldsen scored in second-half stoppage time.
The Danes played the last nine minutes without defender Simon Kjaer, who was carried out on a stretcher after tackling Mame Biram Diouf. His injury was not disclosed.
Coach Morten Olsen did not use goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen and forward Nicklas Bendtner. Sorensen has not played in a game since April 24, when he dislocated his right elbow during Stoke's 7-0 loss at Chelsea .
Olsen is due to select his 23-man roster on Friday. Denmark is in Group E with the Netherlands, Japan and Cameroon.
