Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner (right) is set to win his 50th cap in tonight’s Group B clash against Portugal but he played down the significance of him scoring four goals in as many matches against Portugal as “merely a coincidence”.

Denmark’s recent record against their opponents will also give them hope as they have won three and drawn one of the last five encounters. “When you name all those things then yes, you could say that (Denmark are favourites) but when you look at their players they are all at top clubs and have shown their talent over the years,” said Bendtner.
