FIFA World Cup 2018, Day 8: Australia Hold Denmark, France Win; Argentina Lose

June 22, 2018 01:31

Australia scored a debatable penalty to keep their last-16 hopes alive in their 1-1 draw against Denmark on Thursday. Australia cancelled out Christian Eriksen's fine opener when Mile Jedinak converted from the spot after Yussuf Poulsen's handball in the area was penalised by VAR. In the second match, Kylian Mbappe's first-half strike helped France overcome - and eliminate - a resilient Peru to earn a spot in the knockout round of the World Cup. In the final match of the day, Argentina were stunned 3-0 by Croatia in their Group D clash at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod.
