Denmark Eyeing Second Win to Secure Knock Out Stage Spot

Grabbing all three points from their first group game against Peru, Denmark are now gunning for their second victory which could also secure them a place in the knock out stage of World Cup 2018 in Russia.

Having to battle hard for their victory in their first match, Christian Eriksen and co will be expecting similar kind of battle against Australia this Thursday, especially since the Socceroos were able to trouble France on their opening game.

Head coach Age Hariede will be hoping that his side at least maintain their solid and effective display that they showed in their previous game, as it might be what they needed against Bert van Marwijk’s team.

William Kvist’s absent could be a big loss for Denmark, but just like in the first game, they were still able to secure victory without him, so Danish Dynamite have shown ability to cope with his absence.

Christian Eriksen remains a key part for Hariede’s squad as one moment of magic from the Tottenham Hotspur man can suddenly create something special for the Scandinavian side.

Meanwhile, Australia themselves will be hoping that they can bounce back from the painful tight defeat they suffered against Les Blues.

Socceroos certainly believe that they could’ve got more from that tie and this kind of mindset is what they will be bringing into the pitch as they battle Denmark this Thursday.

Knowing how both teams are gunning for three points, this tie could very well be an intriguing match that should brings out nothing but entertainment for football fans.

Probable starting line up:

Denmark: Kasper Schmeichel(g); Jens Stryger Larsen, Andreas Christensen, Simon Kjaer, Henrik Dalsgaard; Lasse Schone, Thomas Delaney, Christian Eriksen; Pione Sisto, Nicolai Jorgensen, Yussuf Yurary Poulsen.

Australia: Mathew Ryan(g); Aziz Behich, Mark Milligan, Trent Sainsbury, Josh Risdon; Aaron Mooy, Tom Rogic, Mile Jedinak, Robbie Kruse; Tomi Juric, Mathew Leckie
