The Danes now have to win or go home in Australia’s last group stage games on Thursday

The Danes must now beat Australia in the final group stage matches on Thursday or go home – and it’s a task they feel confident about. “We are prepared, we know what it takes. In the European Championship, we had zero points in the first two games, so we are ready to perform,” said EPL player Mikkel Damsgaard.

‘We are looking forward to. All the teams here are good … but if we perform at our high level, we will win the game.’

Striker Andreas Cornelius has great respect for the way the Socceroos operate as a unit and believes his side will have to be at their best to win.

“I’m sure they have a great team, an athletic team, and they play with a high intensity. Collectively they are strong and the first matches showed that’, says Cornelius.

“They’ve done well, work well as a team,” striker Martin Braithwaite added.

“A difficult team to play against, we know that from the 2018 World Cup and it seems they have improved since then, so we have to get the best out of ourselves.”

Leeds defender Rasmus Kristensen said his side are ready to fight tooth and nail to progress to the play-offs.

“We’re definitely ready for a fight, if fighting is what it takes, we’re going to do it,” he smiled.

Although they lack the pedigree of the sporting giants, the Danes have passed the group stage in all but one of their five World Cup appearances and are currently ranked No. 10 in the world rankings.

After crashing brutally in 2018 when they were defeated by Croatia in the last 16 on penalties, the current Scandinavian team is aiming to set a new standard in Qatar.
