Socceroos still alive in World Cup after Denmark draw

It's time to switch emphasis to attack says Mooy Aussie spy Mc Grath tips Socceroos to shock Denmark

It's time to switch emphasis to attack says Mooy Aussie spy Mc Grath tips Socceroos to shock Denmark

Eriksen struck with a sublime effort to put Denmark ahead in the opening stages before the Socceroos got back into the game and earned a point to keep their hopes of qualification to the knockout stages alive.

The Tottenham Hotspur attacker latched onto a attractive flick from Nicolai Jorgensen and hammered the ball past Mat Ryan.

While Denmark coach Age Hareide did not dispute the decision to award the penalty, he was annoyed they had their own appeal waved away in the second half and flagged up issues with the consistency of the VAR system.

Bert van Marwijk chose the same starting eleven that took to the field in the 2-1 defeat to France in the opening match.

Live coverage of the World Cup is being shared between ITV and BBC, so fans can watch the matches on TV. "He is down to Earth and you wouldn't think that he was as world class as he is".

Mile Jedinak. The Aston Villa man might be the second coming of Tim Cahill (who did not get off the bench for this one) in terms of showing up when his country most needs it - he has scored the last five Australian goals in competitive fixtures.

Australia again took a defensive stand against Denmark, which was back at the World Cup after missing out on the tournament in Brazil.

Eriksen opens the scoring against the Socceroos.

Tottenham star Eriksen set up Yussuf Poulsen to score Denmark's victor against Peru and after the match he told Fifa.com: "We certainly weren't at our best".

We'll be getting the team news at 12pm, if not before, and will very generously share it with you as soon as we have it. Set up by Nicolai Jorgensen, an unmarked Eriksen blasted past a helpless Mat Ryan to make it 1-0.

Mile Jedinak has a knack for penalty kicks and his strategy is beyond simple. The referee didn't pick up the initial foul, but awarded the penalty after watching a replay on a sideline TV monitor.

It means they must win against the point-less Peruvians on Tuesday night - and rely on France to beat the Danes - to escape the group stage.

The furthest Denmark have reached in a World Cup was the quarterfinals in 1998, where they were knocked out by Brazil.

Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel attempted to intimidate Jedinak before the penalty by approaching and shouting at him, but those attempts failed. "Everyone knows we've got a chance still and it'll be about making sure we prepare right and the motivation will be there I'm sure".
