The Danish women were level with their opponents in the Group B preliminary clash for the majority of the game, but four goals in the final few minutes took them over the winning line, with Sweden unable to match them.
In a tight group, where all six teams harbour realistic hopes of getting through, an early win for Denmark will give them a solid footing for their next outing with Republic of Korea on Monday.
