Australia vs Peru
Tuesday 26/06/2018 | 15:00 GMT | Fisht Stadium
It’s the last game of group C and somehow Australia go into their final group game with still a chance of qualifying against already home bound Peru. Australia will have to hope group leaders France beat Denmark in their game and come up with a victory themselves.
The Peruvians themselves will want to leave the biggest footballing stage on a wining note after such a long absence. Peru can take some heart from both their performances so far, but the inexperience at this level has been evident.
The Australians too can take some pride from their performances, first almost holding out France for a draw then almost getting a win against the Danish.
The outcome of this match could be immaterial if the French and the Danish decide to play out for a draw. The French will undoubtedly change their starting line-up for the Danish game, the likes of Fekir, N’ Zonzi, Thauvin and Lemar could all start, not a bad B team. Which ever side starts for France, it’s still likely to be a much stronger side than the Danes. All hope is not lost for Australia, while a hatchet job is possible between the French and the Danes, it’s rarely seen in modern football.
First though, Australia will need to find a way to beat the Peruvians. While they may already be out of the competition, the Peruvians are a very proud and patriotic bunch, they won’t be sulking in the last appearance of their world cup campaign, they will want something to show for their efforts. The Ozie’s so far have found goals hard to come by, both their goals have come from the penalty spot and on VAR decision. They will need to find an extra gear they haven’t shown so far, defending resolutely for 90 minutes is not an option for them in this match.
What ever happens it’s bound to be a good game between two fiercely patriotic nations and teams who want to make their countrymen proud.
