Highlights, Denmark vs Australia, FIFA World Cup 2018, Match 21 at Samara

Denmark and Australia played in an evenly-fought, intense contest, ending in a 1-1 draw in their second match in Group C at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ in Samara.

Australia started slowly, and Denmark made the Socceroos pay when Christian Eriksen got on the end of some intelligent work at the edge of the penalty area to volley home with power and precision.

But despite creating a hatful of chances, Australia lacked polish where it counted most and were forced to settle for a point that means it must beat Peru in Sochi on Wednesday [AEST] and hope other results go its way. "The next game is another game, but it gives us confidence", he said.

Australia have only reached the second phase of a World Cup once, in 2006 when a late Harry Kewell goal earned them a point in their final group game, putting them ahead of Croatia. But on the 36th minute Australia equalised via the penalty spot with Aston Villa midfielder sending Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way.

Celta's Pione Sisto's long-range strike was well-held by Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan as Denmark led at the midway point of the first-half.

Daniel Arzani replaced Kruse for Australia, with Denmark switching Jorgensen for Andreas Cornelius, and as the game entered its final 20 minutes Mooy blasted narrowly over from 25 yards.

Trump admin. approves $50 billion tariffs on China
They want to give the Chinese a little more time", the former senior Central Intelligence Agency official for East Asia told AFP. The administration, in addition, could impose additional tariffs if China engages in retaliatory measures, the White House said.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eriksen, who provided the assist for Yussuf Poulsen's victor, admitted Denmark didn't produce the attacking football that yielded 20 goals in qualifying. Denmark, meanwhile, won its first match against Peru. To make it feel like a little less pressure against France in the last game. We just try and do our jobs better.

"The Danes are a strong team, they are number 12 in the world rankings, that says enough", van Marwijk said.

If Australia have a plan in place to deal with Eriksen, who joined Tottenham from Ajax Amsterdam in 2013, then their coach Bert van Marwijk was not letting on in his news conference on Wednesday.

"They are a physically strong team, very tall players, that's their weapon and we played against France and they have more quality and creativity in their players, but I think the Danish are maybe more of a team".

Jumping for joy: Jedinak now has three World Cup goals.
