Lviv: Nicklas Bendtner celebrated his 50th international game for Denmark with two goals but zero points and possible action from UEFA.

The center forward displayed ruthless efficiency against Portugal, heading in a goal in each half to single-handedly bring Denmark back into the game.

He has now scored in four consecutive matches against Portugal. But on Wednesday, it wasn't enough. After the 3-2 loss, Bendtner politely received Pepe's hug, then walked away from the other players, hands on his hips.
