Highlights, Denmark vs Australia, FIFA World Cup 2018, Match 21 at Samara

FIFA World Cup: Penalty helps Australia hold Denmark 1-1 It's VAR! Australian Dream alive as World Cup turns into festival of penalties
Ivan Hill | 21 June, 2018, 22:13

Australia captain Mile Jedinak slotted his second penalty at the World Cup to help Australia draw 1-1 with Denmark on Thursday and keep their hopes of reaching the knockout rounds alive.

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.

Christian Eriksen scored in the opening minutes for Denmark, which has gone unbeaten in 17 straight worldwide matches.

The game was going Denmark's way until the 35th minute when referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz consulted VAR and decided Poulsen used his arm to block Leckie's headed shot and awarded the penalty, which Jedinak drilled into the bottom right corner of the net.

A gut-wrenching 1-2 defeat to France in their Group C opener has left Australia targeting a win against Denmark on Thursday as they seek to qualify from the group stages. But the score didn't reflect the Socceroos' gritty defensive performance.

"I think after today I don't like the system. We hope that we will get him up to a good level and that he will be able to show good things at this World Cup". Australia definitely had the Danes' measure in the second-half, with better positioning and more attacking play. "Christian is a player who can change matches and we try to get him involved as much as we can", Hareide said.

After Denmark's Pione Sisto put a good opportunity wide, Australia gradually got on top, but the nearest they came to grabbing a victor was when Leckie's cross was turned over his own goal by Henrik Dalsgaard and Mooy blasted over from distance.

Daniel Arzani provided a number of highlights for Australia in the second half after the 19-year-old made another appearance off the bench.

Denmark moved on to four points and need at least a draw against France in their final game to guarantee a last-16 spot.

"We're still in with a sniff", said Jedinak after the game. The Socceroos have everything to play for in their next match against Peru.

"For me it is important just that we have to beat Peru", Australia coach Bert van Marwijk told reporters.
