Bento sticks with same line-up for Danish test

13 June 2012 04:47

Portuguese coach Paulo Bento refrained from making changes to his starting line-up for Wednesday's Euro 2012 Group B clash with Denmark despite opening with a 1-0 loss to Germany.

Bento's side need some form of result here if they are to avoid going home early from the tournament while 1992 champions Denmark can take a massive step towards the quarter-finals if they beat Portugal having beaten the Dutch 1-0 in their first match.

Somewhat surprisingly Bento has stayed loyal to striker Helder Postiga, who came in for some harsh criticism after the German game.

Danish coach Morten Olsen - whose side have lost just once in their last four meetings with Portugal - also stuck to the starting line-up he deployed against the Dutch.
