Denmark - World Cup - 1 July 2018

Sidney Guerrero | 01 July, 2018, 21:53

Expect Croatia to play in their strongest 4-2-3-1 formation with Mario Mandzukic as the lone striker and Luka Modric playing in an advanced role behind him. Knudsen's long throw-in falls to Thomas Delaney.

"I was nine years old".

Russia's Cheryshev said the side are confident they can beat any opposition despite being the lowest-ranked team at the tournament.

Croatia will once again depend on Modric, who has been in outstanding form, and fellow midfielder Ivan Rakitic to deliver the goods.

The game against Denmark takes place in the same Nizhny Novgorod stadium where Croatia thumped Argentina 10 days ago.

Rebic, along with Andrej Kramaric and Ivan Perisic may feature ahead of the midfield duo of Modric and Rakitic.

"Now is not the time to talk about the future of players and coaches", said Ronaldo, who, like Messi, leaves the World Cup having never scored a goal in the knockout rounds.

Denmark, meanwhile, are happy to continue flying under the radar, buoyed by a 17-match unbeaten run.

Croatia vs Denmark - Preview, Live Match | 01 Jul 2018
For Denmark , the creative spark will come from Christian Eriksen , who is allowed pretty much a free role in midfield. Rakitic made the comments about Eriksen ahead of World Cup last-16 tie between Croatia and Denmark on Sunday evening.

Saturday's dramatic last-16 openers, which featured 10 goals, marked a handing on of the torch to a new generation, with French teenager Kylian Mbappe announcing himself on the world stage.

The Danes' best ever achievement at the World Cup was reaching the quarter-finals in France 1998. "We can always win and that's what we need to believe, just think about victory", he said.

Denmark coach Age Hareide is counting on Christian Eriksen outshining Real Madrid ace Luka Modric when they meet Croatia. "We are not just PlayStation players twiddling the joystick". "But people shouldn't get used to seeing us play like we did against France", the Werder Bremen player added.

"It's seldom that we play like this, and the game against Croatia will be a very different spectacle".

The center-back pairing of Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer look like a ideal combination of youth and experience, while the team around them are physically strong and well-organized.

Hareide was joined at the press conference by goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, whose family ties with Denmark great Peter have been well documented.

The expected attacking options are Nicolai Jorgensen, Yussuf Polusen, Celta Vigo's Pione Sisto and Eriksen, with the latter tasked with creativity.
