Eriksen hope for Denmark

Denmark can secure qualification with second win while Australia cannot afford to lose after France defeat.

Denmark have a chance of progressing to the next stage after defeating Peru while Australia have a must win fixture today.

This will be the fourth encounter between Denmark and Australia, their first at the World Cup. None of their previous fixtures – all friendlies – has ended in a draw (2 wins for Denmark, 1 for Australia).

The pressure is firmly on Australia whose  defeat in Samara will mean they have no chance of making out of the group stages.Bert van Marwijk’s men produced an excellent performance in their first match against group favourites France.

Australia’s is a lack of goals at this level, just 12 in 15 games, something that will prey on the mind against a side with five clean sheets on the spin.

Denmark will be less of a unit in midfielder without William Kvist, who broke two ribs against Peru.
