Australia eye win to reach Round of 16

Socceroos

Socceroos

"What happens on Tuesday, I'm not sure", Milligan said in Kazan. Everyone played very well, we controlled most of the game, created a lot of chances, and I can't believe we didn't score more than one goal.

They were playing on a late Thursday night rather than prime time Saturday, but the Socceroos have again pulled in a strong TV audience for their World Cup clash with Denmark.

Australia had lost their opening game 2-1 to France and then drew 1-1 with Denmark.

But sitting third in Group C with one point from two games, Australia need to score goals, beat Peru and hope already-qualified France's decision to rest key players does not hamper hopes of a French win over Denmark that would potentially give Australia a lifeline.

Australia's all-time leading scorer, with 50 goals in 106 appearances, Cahill is hoping to join the select list of players to have scored in four consecutive World Cups, following in the footsteps of players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Pele. And now anything short of a victory will send the Socceroos home with another disappointing World Cup.

"We're all very confident (of making the knockouts). We support each other, we know what he would do if he did get the chance, but that's not up to us to decide".

Australia is not expected to have forward Andrew Nabbout after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the draw with Denmark.

Van Marwijk has been clear on what Arzani's role is in his squad: make an impact off the bench.

"I have no doubt that they're going to give it a go".

Speaking of Arzani, Milligan added: "It's up to him over the next few days, as it is to all of us, to show Bert that firstly we deserve to start and secondly we're ready to start".

Online haters have abused midfielder Robbie Kruse and members of his family on social media. Some people forget that it's just a game.

"I am sure we are going to see another huge viewing audience next week against Peru to complement the support the Socceroos are getting from the thousands of Aussie fans who have travelled to Russian Federation".
