Result: Denmark come from behind to beat Armenia in Group I opener

Goals from Pierre Hojbjerg and Thomas Kahlenberg give Denmark victory over Armenia in their opening Group I Euro 2016 qualifier.

All three goals came in the second half as Denmark fought back from 1-0 down to beat Armenia and begin their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a win in Group I.

After a first half of few chances it was visitors Armenia who took the lead in Copenhagen when Borussia Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitaryan found the bottom corner with a low left-foot drive from 20 yards.

Fifteen minutes later Denmark were level when Bayern Munich youngster Pierre Hojbjerg fired home from outside the area for his first senior international goal.

It also made him the youngest scorer for Denmark in Euro qualifiers, breaking the previous record of Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen.

Both sides had chances to net the third and it was Denmark who scored the vital goal with 10 minutes on the clock.

Nicklas Bendtner crossed for Thomas Kahlenberg, who had only been on the pitch for six minutes when he headed home from six yards.
