Australia, Denmark draw 1-1

Australia, Denmark draw 1-1

Eriksen struck with a sublime effort to put Denmark ahead in the opening stages before the Socceroos got back into the game and earned a point to keep their hopes of qualification to the knockout stages alive.

It was not much longer before the match saw its first goal as the Danes managed to produce a counter-attack that saw Nicolai Jorgensen flick the ball into the path of Eriksen, who buried the ball home with his left foot in the seventh minute.

The video assistant referee then played a part in Australia's equaliser as match official Lahoz took a look at a handball claim against Poulsen.

Australia coach Bert Van Marwijk saw his side pick up their first point in Russian Federation. "But they are a good side, they are at the World Cup for a reason". "He is down to Earth and you wouldn't think that he was as world class as he is".

Jedinak, however, got Australia back into the game with his second penalty in Russian Federation, awarded following the intervention of the VAR, and the draw kept the Socceroos just about alive in the tournament.

Both managers made changes in the 68th minute, with Andres Cornelius entering the field for Denmark, while 19-year-old Daniel Arzani was introduced for Australia.

Jedinak converted from the spot for the second game in succession at Russian Federation 2018 to cancel out Christian Eriksen's classy opener in Samara. "After watching our game and the Peru-Denmark game I am pretty confident we can advance from our group". Michael has covered the Socceroos through Asia, Europe and South America in their past three World Cup campaigns. While replays showed Australia had a case, the evidence was hardly definitive, and fans continued to debate the decision on social media.

Jedinak shrugged off Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel's attempts to put him off with some choice words prior to the spot-kick being taken.

It would have been easy for Australia to stay in shock at that early Eriksen goal, but to their credit, they barely let it bother them. The likes of Aaron Mooy, Mathew Leckie, Tom Rogic, Robbie Kruse and Andrew Nabbout got on with it, and gave Denmark quite a few scares before that penalty was awarded. "Everyone knows we've got a chance still and it'll be about making sure we prepare right and the motivation will be there I'm sure".
