Australia will play Denmark in its last Group D encounter on Wednesday in an effort to advance to the World Cup’s knockout rounds and maybe ignite something spectacular in a nation where sport sometimes takes a back place.
16 years have passed since a player from the “golden generation” received At the World Cup, Australia advanced past the group stage, and striker Mathew Leckie expressed optimism that the 2022 edition will do the same.
Leckie said during a news conference on Tuesday, “We’ve always thought that we can produce something extraordinary.
“We observed how proud their citizens are at home. We are therefore motivated by the fact that we are doing it for the country, ourselves, our friends, and our families.
Following Australian Rules and the two varieties of rugby, round-ball ranks fourth in Australia’s football code hierarchy.
However, when the Socceroos defeated Tunisia 1-0 to win the World Cup finals on Saturday, there was a great deal of happiness in Australia.
The Australia locker room on Wednesday would serve as a reminder of what reaching the knockout rounds may mean for the game, according to coach Graham Arnold, who served as Guus Hiddink’s assistant during the 2006 campaign in Germany.
They were 10 years old when they witnessed the men’s actions in 2006. They were motivated by such men, he added.

“To leave a legacy is huge. It’s about the game in Australia. That’s the whole point.”
A draw would be acceptable if Tunisia is unable to defeat already qualified France in the other group game, but Australia must defy the odds and defeat the Danes to ensure a spot in the round of 16.
Arnold spoke as briefly and sweetly as he could about the Danes and the variations, but he was very clear about one point.

It’s always about winning, I’ve never instructed to play for a draw, he remarked.
Our goal is to earn two victories and the most wins at one World Cup, as opposed to the one victory and one tie we had in 2006.
Right defender Nathanial Atkinson, who missed the Tunisia game due to an ankle injury, is still uncertain, according to Arnold, but midfielder Ajdin Hrustic is eligible to start at the Al Janoub Stadium.
Leckie continued, “We can do something extraordinary like the ’06 team did.
“Having said that, the first thing that was stated when we won the other night was, ‘We haven’t really done anything yet since there is still another game to go. And if there is no outcome by tomorrow, nothing has happened.
