Euro-2016 qualifying: Armenia hold Denmark to a goalless draw – Photos

Armenia held Denmark to a goalless draw in a Euro-2016 qualifier held at Vazgen Sargsyan Stadium in Yerevan.

The visitors started on the front foot and forced Armenian goalkeeper Gevorg Kasparov into a good save after just two minutes when Riza Durmisi fired at goal from distance.

However, they missed the creative influence of injured midfielder Christian Eriksen as they struggled to create genuine openings, and Armenia gradually took control as Gevorg Ghazaryan headed wide and Lars Jacobsen blocked Marcos Pizzelli’s effort in a quiet first half.

The hosts continued in the same vein after the restart and managed to test Kasper Schmeichel with long-range strikes when the Leicester City goalkeeper held Robert Arzumanyan’s 25-yarder, before Pizzelli’s effort from a similar distance had the same result.

Armenia had the best opportunity of the game when Ruslan Koryan slipped Yura Movsisyan through on goal, but the striker could only fire into the side-netting with just Schmeichel to beat.

Nicklas Bendtner tested Gevorg Kasparov with a low drive in a rare effort for Denmark, but the game failed to spark into life and both sides had to settle for a single point.
