Young on target for England

England fought back from a goal down to beat Denmark 2-1 in Copenhagen, thanks to goals from Darren Bent and Ashley Young.

Fabio Capello has reason to smile tonight; after seeing his England team produce an impressive performance, to come from a goal behind to beat a resilient Denmark.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger put the Danes ahead after just eight minutes, when he got connected with his head from an Erikson cross to make it 1-0.

The lead only lasted three minutes before Aston Villa striker Darren Bent made it 1-1, after some fine work from Walcott on the right, followed by a layoff across goal which Bent tucked home to round off an impressive move.

The equaliser spurred England on, but it was Denmark who looked more dangerous going forward before half time.

Capello brought on Parker, Barry and Young at half time, and the Aston Villa playmaker made an immediate impact upfront with his club partner Darren Bent.

England looked comfortable on the ball, with James Milner putting in an impressive performance in midfield, and got their reward in the 68th minute courtesy of the impressive Ashley Young.

Glen Johnson began the move with a strong run through the midfield, before picking out Young who finished calmly into the bottom right hand corner.

England looked even more comfortable after their second goal, and the Dane’s never looked like getting back into the game.

Capello made two more changer towards the end of the game, bringing on Bolton’s Gary Cahill, and Everton’s Leighton Baines.

In the end England had to work for their win, but Capello will be more than happy with what he seen from his side tonight.
