Denmark opened their FIFA World Cup 2018 campaign on Saturday when they faced off against a Peru side entering the competition for the first time in decades. The Danes were favourites, but to be honest they didn’t look good at all.

Christian Eriksen and company did manage to take a 1-0 win from the match, which of course is the most important thing, but they relinquished the majority of possession to their South American opponents and the Peruvians had 17 shots on goal. Really, they were very lucky to keep a clean sheet against the wasteful Peru, and not many could have argued if they hadn’t have taken the win from that match.

Australia opened their campaign with a much more difficult fixture against hot favourites for the group top spot France, but unlike Denmark they actually managed to play much better than many expected.

FIFA ranks Denmark No. 12 in the world, while Australia is No. 36. The Socceroos will look to avoid a second straight World Cup without a point tallied.

Australia, though, showed it belonged simply by hanging with France. The Aussies held possession for 49 percent of the time, losing on a goal in the 81st minute. If it can get on the board, the defense is good enough to force a draw or get a win.
