Judge on target for Irish as Dalsgaard starts for Danes

3 June 2018

Alan Judge netted his first international goal for Republic of Ireland last night as they completed a 2-1 win over USA. At the same time, Henrik Dalsgaard played the full match in Denmark's 0-0 draw with Sweden in Solna.

The Irish had gone behind to America in first half stoppage time when Bobby Wood scored, only for Shamrock Rovers' Graham Burke to level things after the break. Then Judge popped up to score a late winner, latching on to the end of a ball from James McClean to net his first ever goal for the boys in green.

John Egan watched on from the bench as his side completed their final friendly of the summer before they break for the FIFA World Cup.

In preparation for this summer's big tournament in Russia, Denmark were in action against Sweden and played out a goalless draw. Henrik Dalsgaard played the full 90 minutes but Andreas Bjelland missed out on a place in the squad.

Denmark now play Mexico in their final warm-up game before they submit their final squad for Russia. That game takes place back in Denmark on Saturday 9 June.
