Lukas Podolski is making his 100th international appearance for the Germany team that has dominated Group B of Euro 2012 and celebrated it with a fine goal to give the Germans a 1-0 edge.
Podolski cleaned up a ball crossed into the box by Mesut Ozil and flubbed by Mario Gomez with a strike that left no doubt in the 19th minute, ending a scoreless run to begin the game that had been marked by German possession and aggression, but a lack of finishing.
As scores stand, Germany would be through to the knockout stage with nine points from three wins, and Denmark would be out, sitting on three points and behind Portugal on goals scored. But if the Danes can equalize or better, their chances substantially improve.
