Australia captain Mile Jedinak slotted his second penalty at the World Cup to help Australia draw 1-1 with Denmark on Thursday and keep their hopes of reaching the knockout rounds alive.

Jedinak's 38th-minute goal cancelled out a seventh-minute strike from Christian Eriksen who rifled in at the Samara Arena after being set up by Nicolai Jorgensen's brilliant touch.

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.
