Result: Denmark down hosts Czech Rebublic in U21 Euro 2015 opener

Pione Sisto scores a late winner as Denmark come from behind to beat host nation the Czech Republic 2-1 in the opening game of the U21 Euro 2015 tournament.

Denmark Under-21s produced a second-half turnaround to stun hosts Czech Republic Under-21s in this evening's opening game of the U21 Euro 2015 tournament in Prague.

Chances were few and far between for both teams in the early stages before the home side went in front 10 minutes before half time.

Right-back Pavel Kaderabek scored the first goal of the tournament, cutting inside before picking out the bottom corner with a low left-footed drive.

The Czechs went close to doubling their advantage just before the break when Denmark keeper Jakob Busk made a double-save to keep out Martin Frydek and Toma Prikryl.

Shortly after the interval, Jan Kliment had another chance to put the hosts two in front, but he missed the target and soon Denmark were level.

Jannik Vestergaard scored the equaliser, heading powerfully into the net after the Czechs were only able to half-clear a corner.

Denmark then became the side on top, and they snatched the points in the 84th minute when substitute Pione Sisto inventively poked home a loose ball in the area.

Both sides had chances in a frantic ending, but Denmark were able to hold on for three points.

The other two sides in Group A, Germany and Serbia, play their first match later this evening.
