Hello there! 'Play for all of Denmark' is the message Christian Eriksen sent to his team mates ahead of their Group B match with Belgium this evening. Having suffered a 1-0 defeat to Finland on Saturday - played hours after it originally kicked off after the 29-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch - the Danes are without a point and need something here in Copenhagen to have a chance of remaining in the tournament. It won't be an easy task as Belgium, fresh from their 3-0 thrashing of Russia, are surefire favourites to emerge victorious and claim their place in the tournament's last-16 with a game to spare. Let's grab the team news, kick-off is just an hour away!

Full-time: And it's all over, Belgium have come from behind to defeat Denmark in a dramatic evening in Copenhagen. Having come off the bench at half-time, Kevin De Bruyne registered an assist before scoring a beautiful winner for Roberto Martinez's side and they're now through to the last-16 of the tournament.

Close to a third! The delivery is poor and with Schmeichel out of his goal, Belgium break. Olsen is there to clear off his line to block Meunier's shot.

Belgium sub: But before the free-kick can be taken, Thorgan Hazard is replaced by Thomas Vermaelen.

Yellow card! Thorgan Hazard goes into the book for a foul on Olsen, conceding a free-kick on the right channel. One final chance for Denmark and Kasper Schmeichel is up to contest the delivery!

Not far over from Jensen, who really puts his laces through a powerful shot that just rises over the bar. FIVE minutes are going to be added on, will Denmark produce one last chance?

Off the crossbar! Agonising for Denmark as Braithwaite somehow directs a difficult header at goal and he can only watch on as it crashes off the top of the bar with Courtois seemingly beaten.

Close to an equaliser! Sloppy play from Belgium, who had looked so comfortable as they give the ball away. But Denmark can't capitalise, Corenlius' teasing cross just evading the fully-stretched Braithwaite.

Into the last 10 minutes and one has to wonder if Denmark have the legs in them to really trouble Belgium here. The transformation in the Belgium performance since the restart has been phenomenal.

Chance! A poor finish from De Bruyne on this occasion as he fails to generate enough power in his shot to beat Schmeichel after the ball fell kindly into his path.

Save! Denmark may not be out of this yet. They're certainly not going to give up, as Braithwaite tests Courtois with a low shot to the near post but the Belgium goalkeeper is equal to it.

Double Denmark sub: Andreas Cornelius and Mathias Jensen come on to give Denmark fresh legs in search of an equaliser as Delaney and Damsgaard are off.

GOAL! Denmark 1-2 Belgium (Kevin De Bruyne): A beautiful finish from De Bruyne as Belgium come from behind to take the lead in Copenhagen! Roberto Martinez's side have been totally transformed by the Manchester City star and now he has the goal his performance deserves. It's amazing movement from Lukaku as Belgium play intricate one-touch football around the Denmark penalty area and De Bruyne smashes the ball past the goalkeeper at his near post from 25 yards left of the area.

Yellow card! Damsgaard goes into the book for a ridiculous dive in a bid to win a penalty. Never in a million years is he getting that.

Lovely ball from Hazard into the feet of De Bruyne, who almost sets Lukaku away, but Kjaer reads the situation well. Denmark are dropping deeper and deeper, and they'll do well to hold Belgium to a draw now, one feels.

Have a look at Belgium's equaliser. That is exactly what De Bruyne gives you - but let's not overlook the part Lukaku played...
