Dennis Rommedahl scored one goal and good assist to Nicklas Bendtner goal. Denmark 2-1 Camerron

** Dennis Rommedahl scored one goal and set up another as Denmark beat Cameroon 2-1 on Saturday, eliminating the Indomitable Lions from the World Cup.

The Danes' victory moved Netherlands into the second round, the first team to advance.

Rommedahl charged down the right wing and spun around Jean Makoun before hitting a well-aimed shot past goalkeeper Hamidou Souleymanou in the 61st minute.

Rommedahl had assisted on the equalizer after Samuel Eto'o put Cameroon ahead in the 10th minute following a mix-up in the Danish defense.

Nicklas Bendtner tied it in the 33rd after receiving a feed from Rommedahl following a superb long pass by Simon Kjaer.

Cameroon is the first team eliminated, although it still has a game to play against the Netherlands in Group E.
