Haiti vs. Denmark highlights: Denmark wins 2-0 to advance to Round of 16

The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup continues Tuesday (on FS1 and the FOX Sports app), with Haiti taking on Denmark at HBF Park in Perth, Australia

Denmark will advance to the Round of 16 with a win and a China loss to/draw with England. It can also advance with a win and if China wins, but it’d depend on goal differential and other tiebreakers. There are also two other scenarios that Denmark can advance, but it would come down to separate tiebreakers. 

Haiti must win by at least two goals and needs England to win in order to advance.

Haiti vs. Denmark 

90′ + 7′: Denmark gets one more

Denmark added a second goal late in the match to give it as many official goals as it did goals taken away by VAR. Mille Gejl found Sanne Troelsgaard on a through ball on a fast break down the pitch. Troelsgaard was able to finish the opportunity, shooting into the left side of the net from the right side of the box to make it 2-0. 

83′: Denmark loses another goal to VAR

Denmark appeared to double its lead on an awkward play. Haitian goalkeeper Kerly Théus opted to challenge a Denmark attack outside of the box. While she won the challenge, Théus remained down for a few moments. That allowed Denmark to gather possession, setting up Pernille Harder for a goal off a header. 

However, VAR wiped the goal off the board, keeping Denmark’s lead at 1-0. That’s still good enough to help Denmark advance if the result holds. 

76′: Haiti so close

Haiti nearly leveled the match when Batcheba Louis’ header off a set piece was saved by Lene Christensen. The shot came after an attack by Haiti that resulted in a corner kick a couple earlier.

70′: Things holding firm for Denmark

There hasn’t been much action in the second half, which is good for Denmark. China and England have traded goals in their match while Denmark still holds its lead, keeping the Danish on track to advance.

49′: Here comes Haiti

The Haitians brought some pressure in the opening minutes of the second half, creating chaos in front of the net as they looked to keep their World Cup hopes alive.

HALFTIME: Denmark leads 1-0

Denmark sits in a good spot entering the break, carrying a 1-0 lead. As things stand, Denmark would advance to the Round of 16 with England leading China 3-0 at halftime. If Haiti were to even the match in the second half, Denmark would still likely advance unless China pulls a miracle against England. 

21′: Pernille Harder gives Denmark a 1-0 lead

The Red and White star and captain drained her penalty kick to give Denmark a 1-0 lead. It was her first World Cup goal.

21′: Penalty kick for Denmark

Haiti’s Dayana Pierre-Louis committed a clear handball in the box as Denmark was on the attack, giving Denmark a penalty kick. 

10′: Active start for Kerly Théus

The Haitian goalkeeper has already made a save and made numerous other plays on the ball in the first 10 minutes of the match.

6′: Goal wiped away

Denmark appeared to take a 1-0 lead in the opening minutes of Tuesday’s match when Simone Boye buried a rebound moments after a corner kick. But VAR determined Boye was offside on the play, wiping the goal away.


The final match of group play for each team is underway!
