Wake up each morning with The West Australian’s World Cup Wrap, bringing you a summary of the games, goals and main talking points from all the overnight action.

The dream is alive

Australia’s hopes of escaping their group for just the second time in history are still alive, now likely needing just a point against Denmark to go through.

Mitch Duke scored a famous World Cup goal for Australia and became just the eighth man to do so when he headed on an at-pace deflection and found the far corner of Aymen Dahmen’s net.

By the time the goal came after just 23 minutes the commanding and much-improved performances from Jackson Irvine and Aaron Mooy had already swung the midfield battle Australia’s way and a fiery moment involving Duke and Tunisian substitute Hannibal Mejbri was the only other flash-point of the first period.
