Socceroos stay alive at World Cup

Australia has kept their 2018 Fifa World Cup dream alive, fighting for to a 1-1 draw with Denmark.

It was a rough start for the Aussies, with the Danes netting a goal in the seventh minute.

But the Socceroos showed plenty of promise pushing forward, breaking down the Danish defence with clever runs behind from Matthew Leckie and Robbie Kruse in the first half.


The Aussies were rewarded for their efforts with a penalty as a result of a review through the controversial VAR system.

Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak stepped up to the spot and blasted the ball past Denmark’s Kasper Schmeichel to level the score.

The result left most Australian fans wanting more and prompted an outcry on social media from armchair pundits that Australia’s highest ever goal-scorer Tim Cahill should have been taken off the bench.

For Australia to advance to the next stage of the World Cup they must beat Peru and hope for a French win over Denmark, both games are next Tuesday.
