Australia gets crucial draw with Denmark

Denmark players fly teammate Knudsen home to see newborn daughter

And with the psychological advantage of a 1-0 win over Peru from their opening game, in which goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel produced a string of fine saves to deny the South Americans, the Danes can afford to be more flexible with their strategy.

Mile Jedinak scores the equaliser from the penalty spot.

One-nil wins to Australia and France would put the Aussies and Danes on four points apiece and with the same goal difference of zero.

Van Marwijk is tunnel-visioned on the challenge presented by a Danish team ranked No.12 in the world.

Pione Sisto tried his luck with a long range shot which Ryan held, and Jorgensen really should have put them two up shortly after when he was beautifully set up with a free header by Henrik Dalsgaard's cross from the right, only to power his effort wide of Ryan's post.

In the fifth minute the Socceroos responded when Tommy Rogic earned a corner and Mathew Leckie's header from Aaron Mooy's delivery flew just over the crossbar.

The video assistant referee then played a part in Australia's equaliser as match official Lahoz took a look at a handball claim against Poulsen.

Tottenham midfielder Eriksen, identified as the dangerman by Australia in the run-up to the game, showed sublime technique to finish after Nicolai Jorgensen's neat lay-off in the area.

Lasse Schone could replace William Kvist, who was stretchered off during Denmark's opener, though the midfielder remains hopeful of returning before the end of the group stages.

Owing to club duties with Aston Villa, Jedinak was a late arrival into camp and ceded his place in the Australia line-up to Massimo Luongo.

Denmark's last loss was in October 2016 against Montenegro, 1-0 in Copenhagen.

That was the last meaningful action of the contest, with both nations having to settle for a share of the spoils which maintains their respective hopes of making it out of Group C and into the knockout stages.

He was named man of the match on Thursday (Friday NZT). If the referee gives a crappy decision against you, you used to always say "you'll get that one back".

Socceroos coach Bert van Marwijk isn't ruling out changes - including starting Tim Cahill - as Australia ready to face Denmark in Group C.

"Obviously it was disappointing", Nabbout said.
