The visitors opened the scoring just after 15 minutes with Christian Norgaard following a free throw that saw Kristoffer Ajer flicking towards the goalscorer.

But Watford managed to equalise on 55 minutes with Emmanuel Dennis.

Ismaila Sarr set Dennis up on a tight angle from where he beat David Raya with a superb finish.

The striker’s goal was initially ruled out for offside but VAR deemed that Sarr was in fact onside.

However, Roy Hodgson’s men failed to hold on and conceded in the fifth minute of stoppage time when Jansson headed a free-kick by Christian Eriksen.
