Australia vs Denmark: Danes hold Socceroos to 1-1 draw

But they could not fashion any clear-cut chances, so must now hope that they beat Peru and France beat Denmark, with there being a margin of more than one goal in at least one game. Eriksen pulls the string in the Danish midfield, providing pinpoint crossing from set pieces and in open play.

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. Denmark closes against France, while Australia faces Peru on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET. Nicolai Jorgensen controlled and flicked the ball inside to Eriksen, who ghosted into space and lashed a sweet half-volley on the rise which flew high into the net.

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 should have doubled their advantage when Jorgensen flashed a header wide at the near post as Australia looked ragged at the back and toothless up front.

And once again it was skipper Mile Jedinak who came to his team's rescue, converting a penalty awarded by the VAR after some 36 minutes when Yussuf Poulsen was judged to have handled Matthew Leckie's header from Aaron Mooy's corner.

Van Marwijk maintains any of the 23 players in his Australian squad are a chance of starting against Denmark in Samara on Thursday. "They are number 12 in the world rankings - that says enough".

They could not turn that impetus, however, into clear chances.

Denmark nearly doubled their lead when Aaron Mooy lost the ball after 21 minutes, Mat Ryan parrying Pione Sisto's effort, before Rogic dragged well wide at the other end soon afterwards.

Second-half substitute Daniel Arzani brought an additional spark to the Australia attack and had a good shot parried by Schmeichel at the death while Leckie tested the Danish keeper with a hooked effort.
