Australia vs. Denmark final score, recap

22 June, 2018, 02:25 | Author: Courtney Perry

Australia captain Mile Jedinak stepped up and buried the spot-kick for the Socceroos, levelling matters as the teams went into the break with the score at 1-1. "The next game is another game, but it gives us confidence", he said.

Jedinak has now scored the nation's last five goals in competitive matches, four of which have come from the penalty spot.

Australia, who are playing in their fifth World Cup finals, need a positive result to maintain realistic hopes of qualifying for the last-16 for the second time in their history.

It was not much longer before the match saw its first goal as the Danes managed to produce a counter-attack that saw Nicolai Jorgensen flick the ball into the path of Eriksen, who buried the ball home with his left foot in the seventh minute.

"We hope that we will get him up to a good level and that he will be able to show good things at this World Cup".

But the Socceroos grew into the game and equalised in a controversial manner.

The Danes enjoyed their best period after this but failed to capitalise on their possession and territorial advantage.


Australia began the second half in bright style but were nearly behind again after 51 minutes when neat build-up play resulted in a chance for Sisto, whose snap-shot went wide.

Rogic was heavily involved in Australia's push for a victor in the second half, and tested Leicester City man Schmeichel but could not find the elusive goal.

Andrew Nabbout suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder in what is likely to be a heartbreaking end to his World Cup campaign.

The same man also kept out a miss-hit volley from Leckie that looked like creeping in just seconds later, while Denmark had a pair of late chances themselves in a breathless finish, only to squander both.

Denmark will be looking to book their place in the knockout stages of the competition with a victory over Australia.

"It's just the final piece of the puzzle at the minute", Ryan said.

Following the shock resignation of coach Ange Postecoglou in November, Van Marwijk has had limited time to prepare his Australia squad but they produced a good performance against one of the tournament favourites France.
