Captain Jedinak levels for Australia against Denmark

SAMARA: Australia captain Mile Jedinak hammered in a 38th-minute penalty for handball awarded by the VAR to draw the Socceroos level at 1-1 with Denmark at halftime in their World Cup Group C match in Samara on Thursday.

Jedinak's goal cancelled out Christian Eriksen's early score, the Danish playmaker firing home from the edge of the area in the seventh minute after latching on to a ball from Nicolai Jorgensen.
