Denmark vs Australia latest score; Eriksen and Jedinak on target


Australia lost 2-1 to France, with Mile Jedinak scoring the Socceroos' goal from the spot.

Denmark and Australia split points on Thursday in their second game at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, and it's a result that really doesn't do anything for either side.

Socceroos striker Andrew Nabbout left the field with a dislocated shoulder and was replaced by Tomi Juric, who contributed to a good spell of late Australia pressure, but Denmark's well organised defence held firm as they earned a point that gives them one foot in the last 16.

Van Marwijk may be tempted to turn to veteran Tim Cahill, looking to score at his fourth World Cup, or Daniel Arzani, the youngest player at the tournament, for further attacking options.

The goal seemed to galvanise the belief among the Australian players, who started the second half well on top.

"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".

Smaller, more US focused stocks were doing better than more internationally-focused USA stocks, said Mokhtari. Benchmark 10-year notes last rose 1/32 in price to yield 2.9205 percent, from 2.924 percent late on Friday.


It looked a bad decision in the early stages as Australia labored up front and the Danes tore into their opponents at a furious pace. Instead, Denmark fell victim to the system, which has worked well so far in the World Cup but isn't flawless.

"We certainly weren't at our best", Eriksen said after the win over Peru. "Two matches in a row, that's bitter".

Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel attempted to intimidate Jedinak before the penalty by approaching and shouting at him, but those attempts failed.

After Denmark's Pione Sisto put a good opportunity wide, Australia gradually got on top, but the nearest they came to grabbing a victor was when Leckie's cross was turned over his own goal by Henrik Dalsgaard and Mooy blasted over from distance.

Denmark's opening victory over Peru was marred by the loss of starting midfielder William Kvist, who fractured two ribs and is likely to miss the rest of the tournament. "The next game is another game, but it gives us confidence", he said.

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".
