Odds and Updated Predictions for Tuesday's Group Matches

Leckie had another opportunity for Australia 10 minutes before the end of the first period, but the attacker just could not meet a low cross from Robbie Kruse, with two Peruvian defenders sliding in to turn the ball behind.

Australia need to beat already-eliminated Peru at the Fisht Stadium and hope Denmark lose to France at the same time in order to avoid a group-stage elimination. "We need the other result to go in our favour, so it's the main point and talking factor".

Striker Andrew Nabbout is set to miss the game after dislocating his shoulder against Denmark, so Tomi Juric should replace him in the Socceroos' attack.

"There are no small teams or bad players in a World Cup, but the road is still long, we have to fight and be very strong".

"But in all three games we couldn't make the difference in goals and that is something this squad misses at this level".

Denmark show three changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Australia, forward Yussuf Poulsen is suspended after collecting a booking in the first two games.

Van Marwijk's short-term contract as Socceroos coach now expires, with Graham Arnold to take over on a four-year deal.

"Not a success but also not a failure", he said.

A victory for La Albiceleste over Nigeria in Saint Petersburg will give them a good chance of reaching the round of 16, but progress will also be dependent on the result from Iceland's clash with Croatia in Rostov-on-Don.

"Only with compliments you don't win win games".

But van Marwijk took some solace from squeezing the best from his unheralded players.

While Argentina's World Cup has been something of a shambles so far, La Albiceleste have just about managed to scrape through the group stages, thanks to a 2-1 win against Nigeria tonight. "This team has really improved from the day I started working with them, and we became better and better and only at the World Cup you could see that for this team, it's hard to make the difference in goals at this level".

"I think he's a really, really good player".
