England came from behind to beat Denmark 2-1 in a football friendly in Copenhagen, with Ashley Young's first international goal sealing the visitors' first victory on Danish soil since 1978.

The Danes took the lead early before Darren Bent and Young hit back for England.

Lionel Messi set up one goal and scored another from the spot to give Argentina a 2-1 win over Portugal in Geneva with Cristiano Ronaldo replying.

France beat 10-man Brazil 1-nil in Paris, the visitors had Hernanes red-carded just before half time for kicking Karim Benzema who then went on to net the winner.

Substitute Giuseppe Rossi struck nine minutes from time to salvage Italy a 1-all draw with Germany in Dortmund.
