Portugal gets a precious victory and it's propelled to second place in the Group H table. The team spirit that wasn't clear in the last game was apparent today. Nani scores twice in the first half. The biggest news is that Cristiano Ronaldo scores in the second half---finally. When was the last time he scored for Portugal in a qualification, like in the 2010 World Cup qualification?

New Portugal coach Paulo Bento had the big pressure of achieving a victory against Denmark. One already can see his mark in the Portugal team with the Sporting CP players he brought back. Carlos Queiroz had dropped off the Portugal team some key Sporting CP players like former Sporting captain, Joao Moutinho, and goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

In the midfield there was Raul Meireles, Joao Moutinho and Carlos Martins.
