Denmark were held to a 1-1 draw by Australia in their second Group C match after Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak converted a penalty awarded by VAR in Samara on Thursday.

"The penalty was fair. But the issue with the VAR is that there are people somewhere in Russia who might make the decision to re-watch one moment or another... Who is making this decision? The system was used against us unintentionally. I think football loses its charm because of VAR. I don't know how it is going to affect the future of football," Hareide said.

The tournament in Russia is the first World Cup where VAR is used to help match officials avoid possible mistakes by reviewing video replays of game episodes.
