Australia forced Denmark to a 1-1 draw on Thursday to keep their slim hopes of progressing to the Round of 16 of the World Cup alive.
Mile Jedinak scored from the penalty spot as Australia came from behind to have a share of the spoils with Denmark in Thursday’s Group C clash.
Denmark’s goal was scored in the 7th miniute by Christian Eriksen
A victory for Denmark would have moved them to within touching distance of the knockout stage, but Jedinak’s 38th-minute spot kick following a VAR review saw the points shared.
Denmark have moved to the top of the section on four points, with Australia still third on a single point. France, however, will rise to the summit – securing their spot in the knockout round in the process – if they beat Peru later this afternoon.
Denmark will end their Group C campaign against France on June 26, while Australia – who can still qualify – finish against Peru on the same day.
