World Cup Preview | Australia v Denmark

Australia take on Denmark on Wednesday, as they look to seal their chances of reaching the Round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup for the second time in history.

The last time the Socceroos reached the Round of 16 of the competition was back in 2006 and they have faced consecutive group stage knockouts since then. But the game against Denmark will present a massive chance to them and Denmark could also seal a spot for themselves in the next round with a win.
