Denmark vs Australia
Denmark are back in action after the 1-0 win over Peru in their first group game. This time they face Australia who went down 2-1 to France.
Denmark are quite rightly favourites for this match as they have a better side, a lot of players with experience in big European leagues, whereas most of the Australian players play in the A-League which doesn't compare to England, Italy, Germany etc.
The Danes will look to Christian Eriksen as always to provide the assists/goals and they will likely field a similar side that edged past Peru.
They’ll be full of confidence after stretching their unbeaten run to a mammoth 16 games, where they’ve won eight of their last 12, and should extend that streak further having faced far better teams than Australia in each of their last four. Bert van Marwijk’s side have lost 11 of their last 18 versus top-40 opponents
Australia will likely rely on set pieces once again like they did against France. They were only able to get on the scoresheet against France due to a freak handball which gave the Socceroos a penalty.
