Danish Delight

For all the amusing and heartbreaking moments that come during a World Cup, sometimes you just want to focus on the goals. And one that hasn't received the attention it deserves was scored by Denmark en route to defeating Cameroon 2-1. After falling behind early on, the Danes equalized, thanks to Nicklas Bendtner. His finish, from Dennis Rommedahl's low cross, was merely perfunctory. But the sensational 60-yard (yes, 60-yard) ball from defender Simon Kjaer lit up the proceedings. You likely will not see a better pass in the entire tournament.
