Australia vs Peru
Fisht Olympic Stadium
Australia still have a fighting chance of progressing but it’s not only in their hands, they must win here and hope France does God’s plan in the other fixture that would kick off at about the same time.
Australia have a squad that fights for everything, undone by a fortuitous Paul Pogba goal in their group opener and laboured to a point against Denmark having gone down to a Christian Eriksen strike, their task is simple, at least the one in their hands beat Peru.
Talking Peru, lots of energy, talent and desire but with weak end product, Peru will be heading home after this game, still yet to score a goal but they can fix that in this fixture, they have been absent on the big stage for quite a long time and they seem to have forgotten how to do it here, no pressure here, nothing serious, just pride and fun.
This leaves it for Australia to do what they have to do and expect France to complete the job at the other end, Tim Cahill is yet to sparkle he, relying on penalties from Mile Jedinak seems outdated as main goal outlet... Socceroos must deliver here.
Verdict: Australia to win
