France’s 2-1 win over Denmark this morning means the reigning world champions are on six points with qualification assured. The Socceroos are currently on three points, with Denmark and Tunisia on one point apiece.
Therefore it will come down to the final match-day for the Socceroos to progress.
If the Socceroos beat Denmark, they would certainly progress with six points (two wins and a loss to France). France would be on at least six points.
If the Socceroos draw with Denmark in the final match, once again things would come down to other results. The Socceroos would be on four points.
– If France beat Tunisia, Aus would be through behind France (9), with Denmark on two points, and Tunisia on one.
– If France and Tunisia draw, Aus would be behind France (7), but ahead of Tunisia (2) and Denmark (2).
– If Tunisia beat France, Aus would be level with Tunisia (4), behind France (6). Denmark would be eliminated on two points. In this case, it would come down to goal difference (then goals scored, head-to-head records, and so on).
If the Socceroos lose to Denmark they will be out of the tournament.
Whichever way you look at it, Australia’s fate is in its own hands.
