Daniel Agger kept calm from the penalty spot in the 93rd minute on Wednesday night to fire Denmark to a 1-0 friendly victory over Sweden in Copenhagen.

The Liverpool defender captained his country for the clash at Parken Stadium, helping to keep the Swedes, who fielded Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the first half, at bay for 90 minutes.

Denmark's Christian Eriksen, Martin Braithwaite and Michael Krohn-Dehli were all denied throughout the opening period of the game.

Arsenal's Kim Kallstrom and Panathinaikos forward Marcus Berg tested Kasper Schmeichel at the other end after the interval, but neither managed to find a breakthrough.

Then, when Braithwaite was fouled in the penalty area, Agger decided to take matters into his own hands as he seized the match ball and planted it 12 yards from goal with seconds remaining in the tie.

Calmly, the cultured defender sent Kristoffer Nordfeldt the wrong way to steer the ball low into the corner and settle the friendly encounter in Denmark's favour.
