Denmark's FC Copenhagen enjoyed a 2-1 win over Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg in the semi-final of Hamburg's pre-season Nord Cup on Saturday as the Germans lost Swiss goalkeeper Diego Benaglio to injury.

Czech midfielder Jan Polak gave Wolves a 1-0 lead on 40 minutes, but Copenhagen's Thomas Kristensen converted a penalty on 45 minutes before Iceland's Rurik Gislason hit the 54th-minute winner for the Danish league champions.

Copenhagen will now meet the winners of Saturday's other semi-final when hosts Hamburg play Bundesliga new boys Eintracht Braunschweig.

The loser will play Wolfsburg on Sunday as a curtain-raiser before the final.
