Liverpool’s Daniel Agger scored a penalty to keep Denmark’s hopes alive with a 1-0 win in Armenia.

Two goals from Fabian Schar helped Switzerland book their place in Brazil by beating Norway 2-0.

Italy and the Netherlands also sealed their places at the World Cup finals. The Azzuri came from behind to beat the Czech Republic while Robin van Persie handed the Dutch a routine win over Andorra.
