Jedinak strikes as commanding Socceroos held by Denmark

But with only seven minutes gone, Denmark were ahead with a goal of the highest quality as the Nicolai Jorgensen's cushioned layoff was crashed into the roof of the net by Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.

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

Jedinak, who scored from the spot in the opening defeat to France, converted from 12 yards after VAR helped Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz judge that Yussuf Poulsen had handled in the box.

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.

Socceroos striker Andrew Nabbout left the field with a dislocated shoulder and was replaced by Tomi Juric, who contributed to a good spell of late Australia pressure, but Denmark's well organised defence held firm as they earned a point that gives them one foot in the last 16.

With the result, Denmark is up to four points in the group, while Australia has one.

Bert van Marwijk's team lacked the compactness and composure they showed in the early stages of their game against France on Sunday and it was hardly a surprise when the Scandinavians took the lead in the 7th minute through their star player.

On Denmark's Christian Eriksen: "He's an excellent player, he's had a great season and he's probably Denmark's most risky player".

Both Leckie and Arzani were denied by flying saves from Danish keeper Kasper Schmeichel in the dying minutes.

Denmark began their World Cup campaign with a hard-fought victory against a Peru side making their first appearance in the competition since 1982.

The Danes took 27 minutes to register a shot in its Group C opener against Peru but Thomas Delaney headed wide from Pione Sisto's cross after just two minutes against Australia.

Having got back into the game, Australia seemed imbued with a renewed sense of belief, surging forward whenever they could and roared on by the vast array of green and gold clad fans in the Samara Arena.

Denmark nearly doubled their lead when Aaron Mooy lost the ball after 21 minutes, Mat Ryan parrying Pione Sisto's effort, before Rogic dragged well wide at the other end soon afterwards.
