Australia defender Aziz Behich has said that the Socceroos are confident and upbeat ahead of the second World Cup group stage game against Denmark. Australia put in a strong performance against France during their opening match of the tournament but they eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat with Behich registering an unfortunate own goal.
Similar to the France game, the Socceroos are expected to face Denmark as the potential underdogs but they still need to get at least a point to stay in the World Cup. Christian Eriksen has been the key architect towards Denmark’s progress to the global tournament and stopping the midfielder could be key to securing a positive result on the day.
Meanwhile, Tim Cahill could have an influence on the game after being an unused substitute in the France defeat. At 38, Cahill does not possess the pace to trouble the Danish defence but the veteran surely has a keen eye for goal. The striker has barely played competitive football over the past six months but prior to that, he scored a crucial brace in the Asian qualifier playoff against Syria.
