Mile Jedinak’s second penalty of the World Cup earned Australia a precious 1-1 draw against Denmark after a controversial VAR decision led to Christian Eriksen’s superb opener being cancelled out in Samara.

Denmark winger Yussuf Poulsen conceded his second penalty in as many games when video replays led to a decision of handball against him and Jedinak buried the ensuing spot-kick to earn Australia their first point of the tournament.

Bert van Marwijk’s side had to grind out a draw against a Denmark side who showed flashes of brilliance, none better than Christian Eriksen’s seventh-minute opener.

The Tottenham playmaker defied Denmark’s reputation as a goal-shy outfit, applying a wonderfully crisp finish to a swift passing move that was reminiscent of the great Danish side of the 1980s.

But Poulsen’s apparent handball means he will miss Denmark’s final Group C game against France, having picked up two yellow cards in two games, and Age Hareide’s men need a point from that game to make sure of their place in the knockout stage.
