Australia gets crucial 1-1 draw with Denmark at World Cup

SAMARA, Russia (AP) Mile Jedinak has a knack for penalty kicks and his strategy is beyond simple.

"Just to get that ball in the back in the net," the Australia captain said after converting from the spot to give Australia a 1-1 draw against Denmark on Thursday and new life at the World Cup.

The 38th-minute penalty was set up after Denmark forward Yussuf Poulsen was called for a handball following a video review. Poulsen was also cautioned by the referee and will be suspended for the team's final group match against France because of yellow card accumulation.
