Australia 1-1 Denmark | Goals & Highlights | VIDEO
Denmark and Australia split points on Thursday in their second game at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, and it’s a result that really doesn’t do anything for either side. Denmark had a chance to potentially clinch a spot in the round of 16 with a win and a Peru loss, but its first-half goal from Chrisitan Eriksen was canceled out by a VAR-given penalty kick, which Mile Jedinak converted for the Aussies to level the game.
The Danish team looked well on their way to a victory thanks to a hot start, and it was Eriksen’s fine strike just seven minutes in that gave them the lead.
But then a half an hour later, VAR confirmed a handball in the box and gave a penalty kick to Australia. Jedinak, just like he did against France, put it away to keep the Socceroos’ chances of reaching the next round somewhat alive.
