Match Review

Australia reached the knockout stage of the FIFA Under 17s World Cup in Mexico after a 1-1 draw with Denmark in their rescheduled Group F match.
An 89th minute goal to Luke Remington ensured a ten-man Joeys finished third in the group and progressed to a last-16 clash with Uzbekistan on Thursday (AEST).

Rochester Sorensen had earlier put the Danes ahead with a 35th minute strike in the match that was replayed after being called off after 25 minutes a day earlier due to heavy rain and lightning.
Australia had Yianni Perkatis shown a red card for a reckless tackle just a minute after conceding the goal.

Brazil topped Group F from Ivory Coast, while Denmark finished bottom of the group to be knocked out of the tournament.
