SAMARA, Russia - Australia drew 1-1 with Denmark in Group C of the World Cup on Thursday, a result that puts the Danes on course for the knockout phase with four points.

Christian Eriksen put Denmark ahead after seven minutes in Samara but Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak equalized with a 38th-minute penalty to give the Australians their first point of the tournament.

Both teams hopes of advancing will be settled in the final round of Group C matches, when Australia take on Peru and Denmark meet France.

In a tense second half, each side had chances and Denmark could thank their goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel for two fine saves from shots by Daniel Arzani and Mathew Leckie in the dying minutes.
