By Nairaland Forum Denmark is the favorites in this vital Group C, but not so overwhelming. These nations, Denmark and Australia are with respectable FIFA World Cup traditions and everything points so far to a highly competitive match, desperate to write new, successful chapters in their world finals history books.
Australia needs to put points on the table, after their match with France, while Denmark is already motivated by the knowledge that three points could mean a spot in the knockout stage. The possibility of winning successive matches for a just second time in Denmark’s World Cup history is very high.
For Socceroos fans, there are a couple of moments in history that will make a pleasant reading. Bert van Marwijk, the coach of Australia and Age Hareide, the coach of Denmark met in 2008 when the former was in charge of Netherlands and Hareide has been leading his homeland Norway.
Did you know that Denmark in all competitions has been unbeaten for 16 games, nine wins and seven draws since a 1-0 defeat by Montenegro which happened in 2006, precisely October 11th. Better on unbeaten runs are only Spain with 21 and Belgium with 20.
