Italy denied Denmark a victory as Alberto Aquilani struck in the first minute of stoppage time to secure a 2-2 draw in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday.
Pablo Osvaldo had given the visitors the lead but a Nicklas Bendtner double turned the result around for the Danes - only for Aquilani to share the spoils late on.
The result means that Denmark will continue to sweat despite Bulgaria's shock defeat to Armenia.
Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon made a landmark 137th appearance for the national team - becoming Italy's most capped player, ahead of Fabio Cannavaro.
The hosts started well with Michael Krohn-Dehli trying to pick out Martin Braithwaite but he just missed out while Krohn-Dehli fired just wide himself moments later.
Italy held firm though and would go on to take the lead when Osvaldo beat Daniel Agger before curling his finish past the goalkeeper.
Denmark continued to press despite the setback and in added time their reward came as Bendtner got up to nod Krohn-Delhi's cross past Buffon at the near post.
Alessandro Diamanti hit the side netting just after the break before the post kept out Christian Eriksen's free-kick.
Denmark would then hit the front when Bendtner buried another header to give the hosts the lead for the first time.
That looked to be enough with 11 minutes to go but in the first minute of stoppage time Aquilani would break Danish hearts when he scrambled home the equaliser.
