VAR penalty saves Australia against Denmark

Share

Denmark's Yussuf Poulsen handled the ball after a Mathew Leckie header towards goal, and captain Mile Jedinak converted for his second goal of the tournament.

Poulsen also gave away a penalty in the win over Peru, once again after VAR involvement, and though Peru missed that spot-kick the Danes have still been left baffled by the handling of VAR at the tournament.

Van Marwijk's side have played to their absolute maximum in this tournament, backed by a huge contingent of Aussie fans in Russian Federation, and they finally have their first point on the board having been so unlucky to lose 2-1 to France on matchday one.

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. Poulsen, who plays for German club RB Leipzig, scored the lone goal.

Israeli warplanes strike Hamas positions in Gaza
Around two million people live in Gaza, majority the stateless descendants of refugees from what is now claimed to be Israel. At least 132 Palestinians have been killed since mass protests broke out along the Gaza border on March 30.

It's make or break for the Socceroos tonight as anything less than three points will all but slam the door on the Aussies' World Cup hopes.

Australia, on the other hand, showed little attacking threat against France, their best opportunity coming from a deflected header that had goalkeeper Hugo Lloris scrambling to save early on.

"When you are at this level and create so many chances against Denmark I must be happy with the number of chances, the only thing we have to do is put the ball in the goal. It's the second match it's been used against us", Eriksen said. If you go back two years and look at the matches there, then that was the case there as well.

After the pleas from Denmark's players to the referee went unheard, Schmeichel had a few words with Jedinak to rattle him.

Pione Sisto almost gave the Danes the advantage just after the halftime break, but his shot went to the right of the goal. He will likely be replaced by Ajax's Lasse Schone against the Australians.

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

The Danes said before the game that they were keen on getting back to the free-flowing football that has characterised the team.

Australia midfielder Aaron Mooy: "We have a gameplan, which we've played since Bert Van Marwijk and the coaching staff took over and not a lot is changing".
