Højbjerg a sub in Denmark win

By SFC Media Fri 11 Nov International

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg watched on from the bench, as Denmark beat Kazakhstan 4-1 in a World Cup qualifier.

The Southampton midfielder was rested for the match, in Copenhagen, as the Danes secured a comfortable win.

Andreas Cornelius set them on the way in the 15th minute, and, although Gafurzhan Suyumbayev quickly equalised for the visitors, the hosts soon pulled decisively clear.

Christian Eriksen's penalty put them back in front before half-time, with Peter Ankersen making it 3-1 in the second period, before Eriksen netted the fourth in added time.

Denmark are now up to third in Group E, with six points from their opening four matches. A friendly away to Czech Republic, on Tuesday, is next on the agenda for them.
