The Danes also progressed into the round of 16 in second position with five points after their closest challengers Australia who fell 2-0 to Peru at the Olympic Stadium in Sochi.

Australia who were looking to usurp Denmark in second position were stunned by Peru who netted twice through Andre Carrillo and Paolo Guerrero.

The Los Incas got their second through Guerrero five minutes after the break.

Ricardo Gareca’s men finished third in the group with three points having picked their first win of the competition, while Australia finished last with just one point.
