Half-Time Report: Denmark, Portugal goalless at the break

Portugal and Denmark are unable to break the deadlock after 45 minutes of their Euro 2016 clash in Copenhagen.

Portugal are being held to a goalless draw after the first half of their Euro 2016 qualifier against Denmark this evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo had the first chance of the match for Portugal when his powerful volley was saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

Danny was next to threaten for the visitors, but after exchanging passes with Ronaldo his strike from the edge of the box was hit straight at the keeper.

Portugal continued to pose the greater threat and Ronaldo fired a shot just wide of the far post after charging through the midfield.

Ronaldo was seeing plenty of the ball for his country and following another powerful run, his cross to the near post was headed narrowly over the bar by Nani.

Against the run of play Denmark came close to taking the lead when Michael Krohn-Dehli curled a low strike from just inside the box onto the far post.

Lasse Vibe had another chance for the hosts just before the break, but his flicked effort did not have enough power to beat the keeper.
