Denmark are hosting Turkey at Odense Boldklub's 15,600-capacity TRE-FOR Park stadium.

This means that up to 15,600 people witnessed Nicklas Bendtner attempting to channel his inner Zlatan Ibrahimovic with an audacious heel flick—and fail miserably.

About three yards from goal, the VfL Wolfsburg striker completely missed his cue and ended up flat on his face as a defender picked up the ball. 

Thanks to his famously off-the-scale self-confidence, Bendtner probably thought it was fantastic.
