Christian Eriksen opened the scoring for Denmark, who had beaten Peru in their opening game, inside seven minutes, the Tottenham player lashing a powerful half-volley past Mat Ryan in the Australia goal after a cunning lay-off from Nicolai Jørgensen.

Australia profited from a dubious VAR choice to gain an urgent 1-1 attract against Denmark Samara and keep alive their expectations of movement from Group C.

Australia drew level before half-time. Mathew Leckie rose to meet a corner yet his header was blocked very quickly by the arm of Yussuf Poulsen. After a VAR check, the referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz indicated the spot. Mile Jedinak opened home the penalty, which means he has scored Australia's last five goals in focused matches, with a keep running of four penalties went before by a free-kick. He was likewise spot-on against France in the opening game.

The second half was a frantic undertaking; however, neither one of the sides could compel a victor, with Kasper Schmeichel making a little square to deny Leckie with two minutes to go.
