When Australian goalkeeper Mathew Ryan asked his family if anyone wanted to come and watch him play in the World Cup in Russian Federation, there was an enthusiastic response: from 27 of them.

That's more than their close rivals (alphabetically, at least) Australia can hope for, with Bert van Marwijk's chargers needing not just a win over an eliminated Peru, but also no acts of charity from France against their European buddies Denmark.

In today's Group C match, Denmark vs France will take place in Moscow meanwhile the second match of Group C, Australia vs Peru, will be played in Sochi on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 7:30 PM (IST).

Australia's best chance to score came in the 27th minute when Tom Rogic made a run through the Peru defence and had his shot saved by goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.

"It wasn't the most exciting game because Denmark wanted a draw", said Deschamps. - If Argentina beat Nigeria and Iceland beat Croatia, both teams will be level on points.

Trent Sainsbury then headed an Aaron Mooy free kick wide of the post late in the first half as Peru entered the half-time interval with a one-goal lead. It's last World Cup victory was a 4-1 result against Iran in the first round of the 1978 tournament in Argentina.

"It's not that easy - look at big teams like Argentina, Spain or Germany, they've all had difficulties here", he said.

Australia have three yellow cards, Denmark four yellow cards. While there are many permutations and scenarios that will decide the fate of countless World Cup dreams, there is one team that remains in focus because of the fact that a legend of the game's World Cup career could be over in less than a day.
