The Match Highlight: Australia and Denmark have met twice so far in the FIFA World Cup this year. Their first draw, on June 19, 2018, resulted in a 1-1 score. Denmark has won just one of their four meetings with Australia in all competitions, winning a friendly match 1-0 in June 2010. Both teams will be looking for the opportunity to join their group-mates France on the attack and win in the knockouts. Tunisia is a tough opponent, but Mexico can be counted as an underdog in this match that’s played simultaneously with the World Cup final. (Wed, Nov 30, 2022, 1:00) Ahmed bin Ali Stadium, Qatar.

Point Table Of Group (D) Of the World Cup
Australia is just three of 18 world cup matches, having won one against Italy in 2006 and beaten one in 2010 in a 2-1 victory. The Socceroos have only kept two clean sheets in their 18 games, with the 1-0 win to surprise Tunisia this time around.
Mitchell Duke scored five goals in his last eight starts for Australia, with four of these goals headed. Denmark has never played out of the group stages at a World Cup. However, following their defeat to France, they could simultaneously beat one of their rivals in the same tournament for the first time ever and play without progression in both games, which would be disastrous. Denmark is on course to qualify for the knockout stages from the group stage in their next World Cup appearance. They have only failed to do so at one of their previous five tournaments (2010).
Denmark controlled the first half but didn’t create much in the second. Australia managed three shots on target in that span, but all their attempts were fairly innocuous. Ryan was forced into a save when Souttar twisted in a shot, and it looked like he would score against his team. Schmeichel made those saves look easy, though, as he could keep the game scoreless at halftime. So the final score is Australia 1-0 Denmark.
