  • Australia secured a shock win over Tunisia to leave their 2022 FIFA World Cup fate in their own hands ahead of this final group game with Denmark but the Socceroos are likely to need another positive result in this clash.
  • Mitchell Duke’s goal was enough for the Australians to clinch the victory to leave them in second spot in the group and they look set to come into this crucial encounter with an unchanged starting XI after their success at the weekend.


  • Denmark looked to have done enough to earn a point from their clash with world champions France but failed to hold on and now come into this final group game needing a win to have a chance of advancing to the Round of 16.
  • The Danes looked a lot better in that game having struggled to break down Tunisia in their opening contest and they will hope to build on that performance with Andreas Skov Olsen and Simon Kjaer both looking to earn a recall to the side.



PREDICTED XI (4-1-4-1): Ryan; Karacic, Souttar, Rowles, Behich; Mooy; Leckie, Irvine, McGree, Goodwin; Duke


QUESTIONABLE: Nathaniel Atkinson (Injured)


PREDICTED XI (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Andersen, Kjaer, Christensen; Kristensen, Hojbjerg, Eriksen, Maehle; Skov Olsen, Dolberg, Damsgaard

UNAVAILABLE: Thomas Delaney (Injured)



  • Australia and Denmark drew 1-1 in the group stage at Russia 2018 in the only previous FIFA World Cup meeting between the two nations
  • Australia are aiming to win two successive World Cup matches for the first time
  • Australia have won only one of their previous 11 World Cup matches against European nations (D2 L8)
  • Australia have qualified from their group only once in their previous five World Cup appearances. The only previous occasion was 2006
  • Australia have only failed to score in two of their last ten FIFA World Cup matches
  • Against Tunisia, Graham Arnold became the first person to coach the national team to victory in a FIFA World Cup match
  • Mathew Leckie and Mathew Ryan are both one appearance away coming into this match from equalling the Australian World Cup appearance record held jointly by Mark Bresciano and Tim Cahill (nine)
  • Denmark are without a win in their last five FIFA World Cup matches (D4 L1). This is their longest winless run in the history of the competition
  • Denmark have faced AFC nations on three previous occasions at the World Cup (W1 D1 L1)
  • Denmark have qualified from their group in four of their last five FIFA World Cup appearances
  • Denmark have scored more than one goal in only one of their last ten FIFA World Cup matches
  • An appearance for Christian Eriksen would see him move level with Thomas Helveg and Michael Laudrup on nine World Cup appearances for Denmark, only Martin Jorgensen has made more (11)


This is a pivotal game in Group D with both teams needing a result. Australia could well advance with a draw while Denmark must win to have any chance to remain in the tournament. The Danes will hope to build on their solid performance against France by getting off to a strong start in this contest but the Socceroos will be full of confidence after seeing off Tunisia. Both will believe they can win this but Denmark have looked like a quality side over the past few years and they can regain that form when it matters here to claim a vital victory.
