Jan Bednarek helped Poland Under-21s to a 3-1 success against Denmark in European Championship qualifying in Gdynia.

The Danes had won their previous five games, topping the group standings on 12 points, but were kept at bay by Bednarek and co until a consolation in stoppage time.

They fielded a strong side, which included Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg, but fell behind after just 14 minutes when Konrad Michalak fired beyond Leicester City keeper Daniel Iversen.

The hosts doubled the advantage before half-time when Pawel Tomczyk was alert to capitalise on a defensive error as Victor Nelson’s pass back evaded the onrushing keeper to leave him with a simple finish.

Captain Szymon Żurkowski added a third with a quarter of an hour to go with a powerful low effort on his left foot which found the bottom left corner.

Bednarek almost scored with a glancing header as well as marshalling a three-man defence in a resolute display.

A minute into additional time, Robert Skov's corner was converted by substitute Nicolai Laursen to pull a goal back.
