Second-half goals from Yussuf Poulsen and Christian Eriksen clinched a 2-0 victory for Denmark against Mexico in each team's final warm-up game ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio has come to the defense of his World Cup Squad after they were roasted for partying with sex workers last Saturday after their friendly win over Scotland.

On the second goal, the Mexicans were caught napping on a throw-in and allowed midfielder Christian Eriksen to score in a one-on-one opportunity against Mexico's net minder in the 74th minute.

Victory for West Indies in first Test against Sri Lanka
Kusal Mendis, starting the day on an unbeaten 94, was dismissed for 102 off 210 deliveries. West Indies took a little more than a session yesterday to wrap up the comfortable win.

The visitors dealt well with the Danish pressure but Yussuf Poulsen gave them no chance in the 71st minute as he collected Eriksen's pass before curling home a stunning left-foot shot to open the scoring.

Mexico saw a Rafa Marquez header go just wide in the second half and Javier Hernandez hit the post late on, but it was a disjointed display from El Tri.

The match is set for Brondby Stadion and features El Tri who is in Group F at the World Cup with Germany, Sweden and South Korea, taking on a team that will play in Group C alongside France, Peru and Australia.
