Mathew Leckie netted his 14th goal for Australia to send the Socceroos through to the last 16 of the World Cup for only the second time in their history.
The last time they accomplished such a feat was 2006.
“We had our doubters but with our spirit, our belief, our work ethic and how close we are as a group, it shows on the pitch,” said a jubilant Leckie. “That last 15-20 minutes, we battled until the end and it didn’t matter what they threw at us, we weren’t conceding.”
For Denmark, it has been a disappointing tournament. Down and out with Kasper Hjulmand’s side taking just one point from their three games.
