Lasse Vibe not involved as Denmark secure third placed finish in Kirin Cup

7 June 2016

Brentford striker absent as Danes beat Bulgaria 4-0

Lasse Vibe missed Denmark's 4-0 win over Bulgaria this morning after he returned home early from The Danes' Kirin Cup campaign in Japan due to an injury picked up in the warm-up before Friday's defeat to Bosnia-Herzegovina. The striker was in line to earn his 11th cap for his nation but was forced to pull out minutes before kick-off as his side let a 2-0 lead slip before losing 6-5 on penalties.

Friday's defeat meant that Åge Hareide's side faced Bulgaria this morning in the Third/Fourth placed Play-Off, a match they went on to win 4-0. Former FC Midtjylland striker Morten Duncan Rasmussen opened the scoring in the first-half before Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen stole the show in the second-half with a ten minute hat-trick late on.
