93'

FULL TIME!

The game is over. Boos all around the stadium as Rovers lose 1-0 after a 5th minute goal. A brilliant display from the Tallaght side. Immense.

93'
Rovers win the ball ...

93'
Copenhagen attack

93'
20 seconds left

93'
Screams of hold it as Kilduff keeps ball in the corner. He does hold it but still wastes a bit of time

92'
Throw to Rovers inside the home half.

92'
Comes to nothing though and we are 90 seconds from full time

91'
Throw to Rovers deep in Copenhagen's half

91'
Into added time of which there will be 3 minutes

90'

Substitution

Stephen Rice comes off to a ring of boos and Ciaran Kilduff comes on

90'
Plenty of boos from the home side. Aw well.

89'
Only one minute of normal time remains

88'
Stephen Rice is suggesting he got hit in the face. Dan Murray and a Copenhagen player go head to head and the ref is in fast to relieve the situation. Dan Murray looks fierce. Grrrr

88'
Corner to Copenhagen

87'
Play resumes, Copenhagen attack and Rovers defend

87'
Another Rovers player down after blocking a ball. Stephen Rice the victim

86'
Four minutes remain and Copenhagen on the attack

84'
When Copenhagen whip the ball into the box, it oozes danger. Happily Rovers clear successfully

83'

Substitution

Throw to Rovers and sub time. Dan Murray on for Ken Oman. Murray has plenty of Euro experience with Cork

83'
Rovers looking to make a sub now. They need the ball out of play

81'
Ken Oman hobbles off behind the goal. Hopefully he is ok, he has been immense

81'
Oman flings his body in front of a shot from Copenhagen and understandably he is down injured from that

80'
Calm and patient defending by Rovers

79'
Corner comes in and headed clear, then kicked clear and head up superbly by Twigg

78'
Corner to Copenhagen after a cut back in the box is fire out by a defender

77'
The Copenhagen manager looks concerned.

76'
Rovers deserve a draw here. Rarely in football do Irish teams get what they deserve but they do deserve it tonight, no matter what happens here on in.

75'
I hope I'm giving you a good sense of how well Rovers are doing. Diouf charges forward and the Rovers back line close him down and win the ball without fouling

73'
Long range shot from Copenhagen runs harmlessly wide. Overall Rovers are not out of place here. They are competing and no "oh aren't they doing good" they are good. Top notch performance from the Hoops

72'
Rovers move forward. and a cross from the left is headed goalward by Twigg but straight at the keeper.

70'

Substitution

Nordstrand on and Seasr Santin off

70'
Brian de Salvo has a point. I am typing 70th minute but the time is 69:20. Confusion reigns.

69'
Corner kick to Copenhagen

68'
Ronan Finn's shot runs just wide after a series of almost chances in the box. Too many almost shots to document but needless to say that was a serious Rovers opportunity

67'
Rovers need to keep ball for a bit and get some energy back

66'
This would be that time in the game when the team you are following have a tired moment. In this case Shamrock Rovers are getting a little leggy, and Copenhagen are starting to take advantage. Oh like there. A shot from outsdie the box goes narrowly wide. Corner Copenhagen

64'
Free kick to Copenhagen on the right side of the box. Danger here as George would say. And he'd be wrong because Rovers deal with it

63'
Ok where are we, sometimes when you are watching a game and nothing is happening, it's tough to update. I could tell you about my day maybe.... or just tell you there are knocking is back and forth between teams

61'

Substitution

Copenhagen sub, Thomas Delaney off and Absalonsen is on. Thomas Delaney is Danish.

61'
McCabe down the left but his ball into the centre is cleared

60'
Play resumes

59'
There is a Copenhagen player down injured in the box. Play has stopped. Ken Oman's chance was oh so close. Really was. Those inches change history

58'
I can see the incredible potential in Copenhagen and their ability to swiftly attack but it's been mostly Rovers. They have been excellent. All they need is a break to get through.

57'
Corner comes in, and ooooooh Ken Oman's header runs JUST past the post. Really good chance. Oman puts his hands to his face, he knows that was a great chance

56'
Rovers free kick now. McCormack takes it, and McCabe protects it and wins a corner

55'
Oooh, the free runs to the right of the right upright. Bengtsson took it, and he to me is a fine player so far in this game.

55'
Free kick very centrally for Copenhagen. 35 ish yards out. No cards shown

54'
Excellent work from Rovers, hassling the defender and closing him down and winning possession.

53'

Substitution

Gary McCabe, dangerous from set pieces, comes on and Dean Kelly comes off. Hopefully has the impact Michael O'Neill hopes.

53'
Concentration will be the important factor here. Rovers should have the fitness levels but focus is key

52'
Dennehy fires a cross into the box but a trailling leg from a defender blocks it

51'
Billy Dennehy has become such a key player for Rovers. Most of the attacks or moves are going through him. Conor McCormack is another who is playing very well

50'
This will be our 16th day out of the last 18 doing match updates. We are starting to dream football. Lunch time is no longer lunch time, its half time.

49'
As Rovers foul it does spring to mind this is a very clean game. No cards after almost 50 minutes. Good to see

48'
Cross from the left for Copenhagen but ahead of all the players and out on the other side for a Rovers throw

47'
Delivered in and eventually the keeper comes and claims

47'
Shamrock Rovers win the first corner of the half

46'
Thanks for your tweets are half time. Now we hope to bring you a Rovers goal

46'

Second Half

The second half is underway

45'

Substitution

Johnny Thompson is off and Ragnar Sigurdsson is on

45'

Half Time

Half time here, Rovers losing by a goal to nil. Tweet us on @ExtratimeNews and we will put some of your tweets online!

45'
Cross into the Rovers box and Diouf almost gets on it but runs wide

45'
One added minute here

45'
A last minute attack on the Shamrock Rovers goal but the Hoops defence deal with it and clear

44'
As we approach half time, Michael O'Neill can be pleased with his sides performance. They have attacked, defended, and ok conceded a goal early but since then have not looked out of place

42'
Corner comes to nothing

41'
What a save by Thompson, cross from the left and Diouf heads from 6 yards and Thompson acrobatically pushes over the bar for a corner.

40'
Corner sent in and headed clear. As an updater, that is the most common corner scenerio and I hate writing it

40'
Corner kick to Shamrock Rovers

39'
Thompson comes out and punches clear. You'd wonder how he feels, number 2 to Mannus all season and then you get your chance, and it's a 3rd round Champions League qualifier.

39'
Here, tweet us on @ExtratimeNews if you are watching in. Prove I'm not alone

38'
Bengtsson fouls and Rovers have a free inside the Copenhagen half. And... it's taken and erm.. rolls straight out of play

37'
A solid point by Zanka there. But this is not gaelic football.

35'
After the start Rovers had, it says alot about their temperment to have not only recovered but have continued to put pressure in the final third as well. That said Copenhagen look so dangerous with every attack

34'
Free kick is sent into the box by Dennehy but cleared. Into the box again and the defender garryowens it in his own box and results in a Rovers throw. From the throw Copenhagen break but the Hoops defence are equal to it

33'
Good attacking pressure from Rovers wins a free to the right of the box. That was a solid spell from the visitors

32'
Ronan Finn decides to keep the ball after a free is rewarded against Rovers and the crowd are not impressed

31'
Half an hour passed and Copenhagen lead after a 5h minute goal by Solvi Ottesen

30'
There is definitely a goal in this for Rovers. Copenhagen are lethal on the break and are superb passers of the ball but I do think Rovers could get a goal here

29'
Rovers attack down the right. Dennehy crosses, to Rice who controls well in the box but can't get time to shoot. Play develops and the home side clear and counter.

28'
Oh!! Dennehy flies in on a Copenhagen attack who is ponderous on the ball in the box and from six yards gets a foot on the ball but the keeper is well positioned or lucky to save! Real chance there

27'
Diouf down the left, cuts into the box and his shot fires over the bar. Dangerous chance there

26'
Rovers build an attack but McCormack fouls. It's a number of fouls against him now and he will need to be careful for repeat fouling

25'
In recent games I've watched, in particular the u19 Ireland games, and now this, the diagonal cross field pass is very much in favour.

23'
Bengtsson is doing well on the right wing.

23'
Free kick to Rovers but well, I'm just not going to talk about it, because it was dreadful

22'
The Copenhagen players pass it around with such ease. Bengtsson crosses from the left and Pape Pate Diouf strikes but it rises up and over the bar

20'
Bolanos takes and Thompson watches it run wide of his right post...

19'
A free kick is awarded after McCormack is deemed to have fouled. Good position, central, 35 yards out...

18'
Dennehy tries to do it all on his own on the left wing but one of his two markers dispossess him.

17'
McCormack fires a ball into the box but too long for anyone to get on it.

16'
Long throw into the box and hoofed clear by Rovers. The Danish attack again, cross form the left, then cross from the right but on both occassions dealt with

16'
Good covering defending by Billy Dennehy in the box to put the ball out for a throw

15'
Since the goal, Rovers have not panicked and have calmly gone about their job.

14'
Rovers using the long ball with effect but the final ball into the box is unable to find a plater in the box.

13'
A mispass gives Shamrock Rovers a throw inside the Copenhagen half. Rovers attempt to build an attack but dispossessed

11'
The home side are angered at some covering defending or in other words Sives pulling a jersey of the opponent. No free given

10'
Since the goal Rovers have had all the attacking play. A good response to going a goal down

10'
Long ball into the box and Dean Kelly gets a head on it but it runs wide of the goal.

9'
A goal conceded so early is morally disappointing but it doesn't really change much. A rovers goal will hand advantage back to the Hoops

8'
Rovers are having a decent spell in attack putting the Danish back line under pressure.

7'
Corner kick comes in and it runs long. Ball crossed bakc into the box and it almost falls for a Rovers player in the box. A decent almost chance there

6'
Copenhagen play it around with comfort but a loose pass in the midfield surrenders possession. Rovers attack and win a corner kick

5'

GOAL!

Oh no, after five minutes a cross from the right into the box and Solvi Ottesen heads into the net

4'
Ken Oman clears for a corner after some neat approach play by Copenhagen.

The teams emerge onto the pitch. This is the Champions League, this is Copenhagen. This is a huge match for Shamrock Rovers!

Copenhagen are in white and Shamrock Rovers are all in black

Ryan Thompson in goal instead of Mannus. First Jamiacan to play in the Champions League. Congrats to him!

0'
Plenty of seats still available in the stadium but a great travelling support for Shamrock Rovers

0'
Five minutes from kick off now. Excitement at a max. Can Shamrock Rovers do the unexpected and get a result in Copenhagen?

0'
Thomas Delaney starts the game. He has an Irish ancestry but he is not Irish, he's Danish is Thomas. With a h.

0'
Well all the gossip today centred around the Airtricity players getting paid 650 euro for their participation in the Dublin Super Cup. At lowest ticket prices, that is less than 12 bums in seats to cover each player. Seems they won't be allowed shower after.

0'
The referee tonight is from Montengro and his name is Pavle Radovanovic. He will, from here on in, be known as, the ref.
