Josh Magennis celebrates after scoring at Coleraine

Northern Ireland retained their Milk Cup Elite crown by beating Denmark 2-0 in Friday night's final in Coleraine.

Unmarked striker Josh Magennis broke the deadlock by heading home James Lawrie's cross in the 20th minute.

Billy Kee scored the second from the penalty spot ten minutes into the second half after Nicklas Hojlund had fouled Magennis inside the area.

Oliver Norwood, Magennis and Corry Evans had other chances while keeper Conor Devlin made some fine saves.

Hojlund saved a Norwood free-kick early in the game, before man-of-the-match Magennis opened the scoring.

Jonas Jacobsen saw his long-range shot fly over the bar, Christian Gytkjaer missed another opportunity for the Danes, Lawrie skewed an effort wide and Kee was denied by Hojlund.

After the break, Magennis fired wide of the post and Anders Christiansen was denied by Devlin.

Hojlund saved from Evans and Magennis but was helpless as Kee blasted home his spot-kick.

Devlin produced another fine save from Zakaria Hassan as Steve Beaglehole's side ran out comfortable winners.
