Denmark and Australia to face each other for the final lap of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 pool stage on November 30, 2022, at 8:30 pm IST at Al Janoub Stadium.
At the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, Group D is nearing the end of the pool stage. France has already qualified for the knockout stage. Only one more from the group can make it to the next round now. Denmark and Australia will compete for that one spot on November 30, 2022, at 8:30 pm IST at Al Janoub Stadium, Qatar.
Denmark needs this victory to surpass its rivals tonight. A draw will result in their return home. Hijulmand communicated to the media that emotions were undoubtedly high. He called the next fixture with Australia a must-win event if the team were to advance past the group stage this year.
The European country is currently placed in the third spot with zero wins and a single point that came when the team drew against Tunisia.
Australia, on the other hand, is buoyant following its 1-0 victory over Tunisia. Denmark has one thing to be proud of. They were in the semifinals of Euro 2020. Plus, players have enough experience to know how to handle such situations. According to the TimesOfCasino’s prediction article, Denmark will win this game with 1-0 score.
Hijulmand stated that while emotions were running high on one side, there was also a fear of losing. These players are used to big games, one feels proud to have the experience of such events, the coach added.
Denmark’s victory will not suffice to confirm their spot. Tunisia faces France today at the same time. Denmark would prefer Tunisia to lose the event in order for Tunisia to remain at the bottom. Assuming the side wins in an upset, everything will come down to goal difference, and that is precisely where Denmark can land a spot outside the knockout round.
France has qualified, but it is hoping to advance with a clean sheet. It does not want to lose right now in order to maintain a winning streak that could last until the final round.
Tunisia and Denmark met on November 22, 2022. The event was left with a drawn result. Denmark earned the highest percentage of possession as well as the highest number of Shots on Target stat (5 out of 11). That has been the only drawn event in Group D so far.
It was tough to face France, as the opponent had victory written all over them since the beginning of the game. Kylian scored the first goal in the 61st minute. Andreas got back into his style by equalizing the score in the 68th minute. When it appeared that the game would end in a draw, another for Denmark, Kylian swooped in to double the score in the 86th minute. Denmark kept the formation of 3-4-2-1, which was reorganized from the previous formation of 3-5-2. An additional midfielder could probably have saved Denmark from a loss against France.
