Still alive: Ando breaks down Australia’s hopes of World Cup progression

Article image for Still alive: Ando breaks down Australia’s hopes of World Cup progression

The Socceroos’ FIFA World Cup dream is still alive, after a 1-1 draw with Denmark.

The Danes scored first thanks to a brilliant strike by Tottenham star Christian Eriksen.

The world no.12 Scandinavians took control for the first 20 minutes of the match before the tide started to turn.

A Video Assistant Referee (VAR) handball decision in the 38th minute handed Australia a penalty with captain Mile Jedinak converting for the second time in as many games.

The Socceroos dominated for much of the match but couldn’t find a second goal.

19-year-old Daniel Arzani was brought on, immediately sparking life into Australia’s attack but it wasn’t enough.

The only big negative out of the game was a serious shoulder injury to Andrew Nabbout, who is likely to miss the rest of the tournament.

The Socceroos play Peru in Sochi on Wednesday in the hope of progressing.

While there are many possibilities depending on the amount of goals scored, Australia must at least defeat Peru and needs France to defeat Denmark.
