Like every other World Cup host city, a large amount of tickets have been sold to local fans. And, just like every other World Cup host city, most of those supporters were still out on the streets, celebrating Russia's penalty shoot-out win over Spain, when Sunday's late game got underway.

Demark 1 Australia 1

Denmark winger Yussuf Poulsen conceded his second penalty in as many games when video replays led to a decision of handball against him and Jedinak buried the ensuing spot-kick to earn Australia their first point of the tournament.

Bert van Marwijk's side had to grind out a draw against a Denmark side who showed flashes of brilliance, none better than Christian Eriksen's seventh-minute opener.

Ireland dig in for Denmark draw

The only clear chances of a tight encounter were in the first half as Darren Randolph made a sharp double save and Pione Sisto turned a rebound wide from a good position.

Ireland offered little in attack but almost hit on the break in the 44th minute as Cyrus Christie saw a shot saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

Randolph also tipped over a late header from substitute Yussuf Poulsen to ensure the tie is level ahead of the return leg at the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports Football.
