World Cup 2022 LIVE: Australia vs Denmark latest score, goals and updates as Christian Eriksen starts

Fifa World Cup: Results and reactions from day ten

Denmark are taking on Australia in what is effectively a knockout tie in Group D of the Qatar World Cup, with everything on the line as both sides vie for a place in the last 16.

The Danes have only one point on the board thanks to an opening goalless draw with Tunisia. They battled well with reigning world champions France but eventually fell 2-1, and it leaves Kasper Hjulmand’s side needing all three points against second-placed Australia in order to leapfrog them and qualify for the knockout stage.

Australia were well beaten by France in their opener but managed to earn a vital victory over Tunisia in their second game to put themselves in pole position to qualify with France. Tunisia beating France would complicate matters, but if that doesn’t happen then Australia simply need to avoid defeat here to book their place in the last 16.

World Cup 2022: Australia 0-0 Denmark

17 mins: McGree escapes a booking for a sloppy challenge, but he has given away a free kick out on Australia’s right flank and midway into their half.

Eriksen floats it in, but Christensen’s header at the back post goes well wide.

14 mins: This is a sustained spell of Danish pressure.

Skov Olsen receives the ball just inside the Socceroos’ box, but – as with Jensen moments ago – the angle isn’t kind.

He leans back and skies his shot.

World Cup 2022: Australia 0-0 Denmark

13 mins: Andersen sends a long, low pass out from the centre of the Denmark defence, and it’s flicked on for Jensen, who’s running into the Australia area!

Such an efficient move… but Jensen is forced to strike on the angle, and his powerful effort is tipped over by Ryan!

Australia then clear the Denmark corner that follows.

11 mins: A half-chance for the Danes!

They work the ball out wide on the right, and a low cross is cut back into the centre of the Australia box.

A great, sliding interception denies the subsequent shot, however!

World Cup 2022: Australia 0-0 Denmark

9 mins: Hojbjerg miscontrols the ball in his own half, and Goodwin pounces. He simply passes the ball out for a throw-in with an inaccurate effort, though. A waste!

Denmark take the throw and then boot the ball long, but Lindstrom is judged to have pushed his man while vying for it deep in the Aussie half.

7 mins: Lindstrom pokes a pass to Maehle, who’s storming up Denmark’s left flank on the overlap.

The full back sends in a cross with the outside of his boot, but Ryan does well to collect it.

World Cup 2022: Australia 0-0 Denmark

5 mins: Jensen can’t control a low cross into the Australia six-yard box, and the Socceroos have a goal kick.

It’s actually passed from defender to keeper Ryan, who hoofs it long but out of play!

World Cup 2022: Australia 0-0 Denmark

3 mins: Fast start for Australia!

They win the ball in Denmark’s half and string together some neat, short passes, before McGree gets a shot off from the edge of the box.

It’s blocked and deflects away, though!

Soon after, Behich is booked for dragging back Skov Olsen.

The resultant Danish free kick goes into the Aussie box but is headed away.
