Australia vs Denmark – World Cup Group D: How they’re doing, injuries and prediction for winner-take-all clash

WINNER TAKES ALL AUSTRALIA head into a decisive clash with Denmark knowing a draw will almost certainly be enough to see them through to the last 16.

That would make it only the second time the Socceroos have reached a World Cup knockout stage.

How Australia lined up against Tunisia
However, they arrive as underdogs against a usually-impressive Denmark side that has yet to click.

The Danes made it to the Euro 2020 semi-finals last year, but were held to a draw by Tunisia before losing to France at this tournament.

That means that they will require a victory in this one to make it through.

How are they getting on?
Australia: Graham Arnold’s side have confounded pre-tournament predictions to give themselves a great chance of qualifying.

Though they were outclassed by France in a 4-1 loss, they recovered to earn a crucial 1-0 win over Tunisia through Mitchell Duke.


Denmark: The Danes were disappointing in an opening 0-0 draw with the Tunisians which could cost them dear.

A narrow 2-1 defeat to France in their second match means only a win will do in this one.

Any injuries to worry about?
Australia: Nathaniel Atkinson picked up a knock against France and replacement Fran Karacic is likely to keep his spot after a strong display against Tunisia.

Hibernian striker Martin Boyle has been ruled out of the entire World Cup after an ACL injury on the eve of the tournament.

Denmark: Thomas Delaney will miss the rest of the tournament with a knee injury.

Mikkel Damsgaard replaced him during the France game and is likely to keep his place.

Who will be the star men?
Australia: Aaron Mooy has provided a typically assured presence in midfield and will need to do so again if the Socceroos are to qualify.

Denmark: The Danish squad is full of talent but it’s hard to look beyond Man Utd star Christian Eriksen as the main man.

Australia will qualify automatically with a win over Denmark.

A draw will be enough if Tunisia fail to beat France.

Denmark must beat Australia by a margin equal to any Tunisian victory over France.

What’s the head-to-head?
The sides have met just once at the World Cup – four years ago.

That day, a Mile Jedinak penalty earned the Aussies a 1-1 draw after an early Christian Eriksen strike.

Australia and Denmark have met three more times, all friendlies, with the Aussies winning, losing and drawing one.
