Australia’s first World Cup win in 12 years put them in contention to advance to the knockout stages for the first time since 2006. Put simply, beating Denmark would advance them to the knockout stages, even though that is clearly easier said than done.
While the excitement surrounding the Danes – who were seen as dark horses in some circles – has died down somewhat, they still present a tough challenge.
Goals may have been a problem, but the Euro 2020 semi-finalists have huge talent and need to earn themselves.
Certainly, this has all the ingredients for an exciting group game.
Here’s everything you need to know…

Australia vs Denmark Team News
The Socceroos, thankfully, appear to be free from any new injury concerns. Mitchell Duke will once again lead the line, with Aaron Mooy key again following his excellent performance against Tunisia.
For Denmark, Thomas Delaney has been kicked out of the tournament through injury and the need for goals could see Martin Braithwaite and Kasper Dolberg paired up front.
Australia vs Denmark Prediction
While Denmark will surely be the favourites, Australia’s impressive defensive play looks like the worst possible game for a team struggling to score.
