Qatar 2022: Socceroos out for the feat against the Vikings | Video

The Australian National Team complete the group stage World Cup Qatar 2022 this wednesday before Denmark, duel that oceanic people face with the intention to confirm his feat, after achieving his first World Cup victory since South Africa 2010, before a Danish team that still has options, although his performance has not been as expected, forced to risk for the Round of 16 at the edge of the abyss.

Australia It came as the selection, perhaps, less accustomed to the competitiveness of this type of tournament. However, that ‘humility’ and nothing to lose, the oceanic team has managed to get the most out of its pragmatic and effective style. He already tried it on the opening day, when put against the ropes, even if only at the beginning champions France with an early goal, but it was only a mirage falling 4-1.

However, his hard work to be a rocky and leathery team was rewarded on the second date, when beat Tunisia with the solitary goal from Mitchell Duke. This allowed the Australians celebrate again a victory in a World Cup, the last was in 2010, in addition to having kept a clean sheet for the first time since the 1974 edition held in Germany.

The important goal of Duke gives many options to australia to advance round and equal his best result in a World Cup. It was in Germany 2006, in his second participation in the tournament, when reached that first crossing and fell against Italy, ultimately champion.

The Australians have their ticket to the next round in their hands, but they have to beat or draw against the Danes.

those of Graham Arnold would repeat the dream of Round of 16 16 years later if they beat Denmarkthough the tie is also worth themas long as Tunisia did not beat France.

The Danes have it more complicated, now with only one point on this Group D, which should be imposed on Australia and hope that Tunisia did not beat France. If the African team beat the defending champion, the second place in the group would be defined by goal difference between Denmark and the Tunisians (both -1).

The European team was not able to break the Tunisian wall on the first day (0-0), letting go of a colon with which they surely had before the start of the tournament. Nor could he extend his great balance against France on the second day, when a double from kylian mbappe dried up the nordic system. And it is that the model that gave joy in the last Eurocup, where it was the revelation team, and in the League of Nations has not been able to confirm, yet, in Qatar 2022.

The Nordic team has no margin for error, after drawing with Tunisia and losing to France.

But still they are on time to take off and not confirm one of the disappointments of the tournament, recovering the ‘covered’ poster for the playoffs. Being in control and not falling into the typical nervousness of these tournaments when you are on the brink of the abyss will be key to confirming your highest level. In addition, the individual talent of men like Eriksen, Holjberg or Daamsgard must be imposed on the Australian shortcomings, with a team without a clear reference.

Kasper Hjulmand it will have to decide if it gives continuity in the ‘eleven’ to andreas christensenwarned, like Rasmus Kristensen down the right lane. The FC Barcelona central defender was the author of the only goal for the Danes in this World Cup -against France-, confirming his fundamental role in this team, with a good performance also against Tunisia. The best Daamsgard in attack is also expectedwhere the position of ‘9’ is failing, without a clear striker, with Cornelius, Dolberg and Braithwaite fighting for that position.

The historical balance of this confrontation is favorable to the Danes, that tied (1-1) in Russia 2018 in the group stage, while they won in 2012 (2-0) and 2007 (1-3), both in friendly matches. Like the duel that took Australia in 2010, with a short 1-0.
