Jonas Knudsen won his fifth Danish cap as his side beat Austria 2-0 in Herning last night.

The Ipswich Town left back started the friendly game but was replaced with a minute to go after taking a blow to the head in a game in which Bordeaux’s Lukas Lerager and Middlesbrough’s Martin Braithwaite scored the goals to fire to Denmark to victory.

Despite being replaced, Knudsen was well enough to join in the post-game celebrations , with the left back posting footage online.

Elsewhere last night, Gwion Edwards was an unused substitute for Wales as Ryan Giggs’ men beat the Republic of Ireland 1-0 in Dublin.
