Scotland beat Denmark in soggy Glasgow

LONDON - Robert Snodgrass scored on his first Scotland start to seal a 2-1 win over Denmark in a rain-sodden friendly in Glasgow on Wednesday.

The forward slid in with a diving header at the far post just before the break following Kenny Miller's deep cross.

The hosts, who are third in Euro 2012 qualifying Group I and next host Czech Republic on September 3, took the lead midway through the first half when Charlie Adam's fierce free-kick was sliced into his own net by William Kvist.

Christian Eriksen hit back with a free-kick which was misjudged by goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who redeemed himself with two good saves to leave the Danes licking their wounds ahead of their Group H game at home to Norway on September 6.

Denmark are level at the top of the section on 10 points with Portugal and the Norwegians after five games.
