No injuries are reported for Denmark.
No injuries are reported for Australia.
The dark horse contender Denmark hasn’t managed to play quality football in this year’s World Cup. Kasper Schmeichel’s men have failed to win a single game and are on the verge of elimination against Australia. The frontline has struggled to penetrate as only defender Andreas Christensen has managed to score the only goal for the side. The midfield has also underwhelmed making the Danes one of the most disappointing teams in Qatar.
Whereas the Australian team has been extremely entertaining in the World Cup so far. The Socceroos managed to take the lead in both their games and also registered a win. So entering this fixture as well they will try to get off to a flying start. Their front line has managed to threaten opposition defenders on the counter while the midfield has held its own. The Aussie captain Mathew Ryan remains their best player and the fans would a stellar performance from him.
