Copenhagen: Alberto AquilaniDenmark's hopes of a World Cup revival suffered a blow on Friday after a late equaliser by Alberto Aquilani helped Italy secure a 2-2 draw that maintained their unbeaten record in Group B.

Juventus reject Nicklas Bendtnder looked to have secured all three points for Denmark when he headed home his second of the night to give Morten Olsen's men the lead in the 79th minute.

However, late substitute Aquilani scored a late equaliser in injury time after the ball deflected off the striker's leg following a shot from Pablo Osvaldo.
