Portugal Crash to Denmark

Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of his Portuguese teammates suffered a blow to their Euro 2008 warm-up campaign when Denmark ran out (deserved) 4-2 winners in a friendly match.

Portugal face Finland away on Wednesday night in their first Euro 2008 Qualifier, and will be hoping for a better performance then.

In truth, it was a young Portugal side. Figo and Pauleta have both hung up their boots, and Deco was rested ahead on the big game, leaving Cristiano Ronaldo and Tiago as some of the more experienced, if not older, ones.

It was Martin Jorgensen, of Udinese fame, who took on the Portuguese almost single-handedly with a hand in three of their four goals.

Rooney fans will be interested to know that Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty, with Sorensen guessing correctly, which may lead to Cristiano handing over the job at Old Trafford, but probably won't!

Good luck for Wednesday Ronny!
