Socceroos prepare for WC do-or-die clash against Denmark

The Australian Football teams won’t progress any further in the 2018 Fifa World Cup if they can’t manage a win or draw against Denmark tonight.

Socceroos coach Bert Van Marwijk is wary of the Danish side and is anticipating they’ll be a difficult side to break down.

“The Danish they are a strong team, they are number 12 in the world rankings and that says enough,” Van Marwijk said.


“They are a physically strong team, very tall players, that’s their weapon and we played against France and they have more quality and creativity in their players, but I think the Danish are maybe more a team.”

If Australia loses, they will leave Russia after the group stage regardless of their outcome against Peru next Tuesday.

There have been calls for Van Marwijk to include Australia’s highest ever goalscorer, Tim Cahill, for tonight’s must-win match.

However, the coach said they’re considering all options.

“I will not talk about changes or not changes, we analysed the game very well,” he said.

“Denmark will be a very difficult team to play against, but we get more confident every day in the way we want to play and I think that is very important.”
