    Arnold's side quick out of the blocks

    At these finals, Australia have been strong starters, something which could serve them well in a tense, close-fought game.

    The Socceroos took the lead against both France and Tunisia inside the opening quarter of the game, it was the first time they have ever led at half-time in a World Cup match.

    Denmark will have to prepare for the early onslaught.

    Socceroos out in full force

    Such is the anticipation for this final group game that it looks like Australia will have plenty of support in Al-Wakrah today.

    The Socceroos can seal their progress to the last 16 with a win against Denmark today.

    Arnie wants to build legacy

    The Australian manager spoke about what their last defeat meant to a nation back home:

    If there’s probably something that’s been proven right it’s that there’s one sporting team that unites a nation, and it’s the Socceroos, The celebrations at Federation Square down in Melbourne just shows you football is alive and well in Australia, and putting smiles on Australian faces once is not enough – let’s do it some more times

    Victory will lift a nation

    The win against Tunisia in their last game was Australia’s third-ever World Cup win, and their first since 2010 when they beat Serbia in South Africa.

    Despite that win in 2010, they failed to progress from the group stage despite having four points.

    Their form in previous World Cups against European sides is a cause for concern though, having lost 8 of their 11 meetings with sides from the continent.

    Australia better than their results

    Despite the scoreline in their opener, they took the lead against France and were competitive throughout but just lacked the quality to match Les Bleus.

    In more evenly matched game, they thoroughly deserved their victory over Tunisia.

    Now they hold their fate in their own hands, favourites to progress from Group D.

    Welcome to Australia vs Denmark

    Australia and Denmark round off their World Cup group stage campaigns when they meet at the Al Janoub Stadium in what could be a ‘winner takes all’ showdown this afternoon.

    The Socceroos have the upper hand going into this fixture, following their win over Tunisia on Saturday, moving them into second on three points.

    Nathaniel Atkinson missed Australia’s win over Tunisia after picking up a knock to his ankle against France in the group opener.

    Brescia’s Fran Karacic came in to replace him at right back, the only change for that game, and given that they won it is unlikely that manager Graham Arnold will change anything.

    Martin Boyle will be a big miss though, as the Hibernian forward suffered an ACL injury on the eve of the tournament and will miss the rest of the season.

    Thomas Delaney will miss the rest of the tournament for Denmark after suffering a knee injury in the first half against Tunisia on matchday one.

    This saw Mikkel Damsgaard come into the side as Hjulmand changed shape from 3-5-2 to 3-4-3, taking a man out of midfield and using the Brentford man out wide.

    Skov Olsen and Simon Kjaer were rested against France but are expected to return into the starting XI.
