Denmark Vs. Germany, Euro 2012: Halftime Score Finds 1-1 Knot

Germany only needs a draw to advance from Group B in Euro 2012. At halftime, they have it. But Denmark, despite an equalizer, is going to need more to move on.

Lukas Podolski opened scoring for the Germans with a goal from inside the box in the 19th minute, scoring one of the few great chances Germany have had against a Danish defense that has made errors in the first half of play. Michael Krohn-Delhi equalized for Denmark five minutes later with a header off a header from a corner kick on a marking mistake by Germany.

Both teams struggled to get shots on target in the first half; Denmark had four to Germany's two.

Should results stand and both final games in Group B end in ties, Germany would move on and Denmark would lose a tiebreaker to Portugal. If the Danes can win, or tie with a Netherlands win, they will go through.

We'll have live coverage of both of Saturday's games simultaneously in our Euro 2012, Group B Finale StoryStream. For more on Euro 2012 and the entire world of football, follow @SBNationSoccer on twitter.
