After scoring his team’s third goal at the Parken Stadium, Andreas Christensen fashioned a number 10 with his hands as a homage to teammate Christian Eriksen.
Mikkel Damsgaard’s remarkable shot put the Danes up, and Yussuf Poulsen increased their lead after Roman Zobnin’s blunder.
After Artem Dzyuba’s penalty in the 70th minute, Christensen restored Denmark’s two-goal lead, and Joakim Maehle made it four.
