Italy and Sweden both win to share top spot in Group A of Euro 2013
Sweden and Italy share the lead in Group A with four points after both sides scored crucial victories at the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 Finals on Saturday.
Both sides have four points after Italy won 2-1 against Denmark and the Swedes crushed Finland 5-0 to grab top spot for now.
Italy coach Antonio Cabrini was delighted with his "improved" Italy team after they beat Denmark.
Second-half goals from Melania Gabbiadini and substitute Ilaria Mauro put Italy in control before Mia Brogaard set up a nervy finale. But the result means Italy are three points clear of their rivals.
Cabrini said: "It was a great game, on a knife edge to the very last minute.
"We've beaten a great Denmark side and this enables us to look forward to the future with more confidence. I think the girls gave it all they've got and we deserved this win for the way we played over the 90 minutes. It was a fantastic performance and an improvement on the Finland game."
Danish coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller added: "I think we created some chances and lost our cool a bit when we didn't succeed in scoring the first goal.
"Everyone knew that we wanted to get the points so we tightened up a bit and didn't play our natural game, and Italy are a great team. If you give them a finger they'll take the whole arm, and that's what they did today."
Elsewhere, hosts Sweden finally got into top gear as they crushed Finland 5-0.
Two goals from Nilla Fischer in the first half and two from Lotta Schelin in the second half were the basis of a comfortable win. Kosovare Asllani also found the net.
