Denmark v Australia: World Cup 2018 match preview, predicted line-ups, key players, and more



We’re a week into World Cup 2018 and already we could see a nation from Group C qualify for the knockout stage as Denmark play Australia.

The Danes recorded a 1-0 win over Peru in their first match but know the Socceroos will be tough opponents given how well they shutdown France, despite losing 2-1.

Team news

The Danes will have to do without William Kvist after he was stretchered off against Peru but Jonas Knudsen will play, despite returning to his homeland for the birth of his daughter.

William Kvist was injured in the win over Peru.

Australia have no huge concerns over the fitness of their players but may make some alterations for their team as they search for a win.

What the players are saying

Kasper Schmeichel (Denmark): “It goes without saying Christian Eriksen is a world-class player, we’re very lucky he’s Danish and we’re very happy about that.

“He’s important to the team, we’ve seen that through qualifying, particularly in the play-offs when scoring a hat-trick, but off the pitch he’s a great lad, very down to earth and you wouldn’t think he’s the world-class player he is. He’s of huge importance to this team.”

Predicted XIs

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

He told reporters: We have to keep a close eye on him, and try and stop the supply to him. We have to do it altogether as a team.”
