Achille Emana's second goal in as many games, to go with his second Man of the Match award, was not enough to gain a point on this occasion as Denmark put themselves right into the mix for a second round place after they jumped out to a 2-0 lead. The warning signs were there early on with Pouslen shooting into the side netting and Khalenberg weakly heading on target, so it was no surprise that the Danes took the lead. Nicklas Bandtner squeezed the ball inside the near post on a tough angle shot after a good run from Jorgensen, and the lead was doubled three minutes later when Jon Dahl Tomasson ripped his free kick clean through the wall.
The first half essentially died out there but there was another wasted chance for Khalenberg before the break. Cameroon came out looking brighter in the second half with Emana generating a chance of his own by evading a tackle and shooting wide of the post. Twelve minutes later and a bad backpass allowed Emana to move in alone, round the goalkeeper and pull Cameroon within one. The game opened up a little more with both keepers saving well. Souleymanon from Jacobsen's thirty yarder, and Stekelenberg stopping Enoh after his good play with Alex Song.
