COPENHAGEN - Goals from Esteban Paredes and Alexis Sanchez gave Chile a 2-1 win over Denmark in an international friendly on Wednesday. After a first half dominated by the Chilean attack, they took the lead in the 61st minute thanks to substitute Paredes. Denmark equalised two minutes later when Lasse Schone received a pass from Jakob Poulsen and lifted it past Chile's keeper Miguel Pinto. But Chile regained the lead when Alexis Sanchez headed in a high, long pass. Danish Coach Morten Olsen used the match to try out two goalkeepers, with Stephan Andersen playing the first half and Jesper Christiansen the second. The team's first choice, Thomas Sorensen, is suspended for their World Cup qualifier against Portugal on Sept. 5. Denmark head Group One by three points from Hungary.
