World Cup 2010 Warm Up: Australia 1-0 Denmark

Australia and Denmark faced each other in Roodepoort, South Africa in what was the second of each of their three-match World Cup warm up programmes. It was a tight and cagey affair, lacking in regular goalmouth action. The solitary strike came in the 71st minute when Australian striker Josh Kennedy latched on to a ball into the box to score from close in. It was the Nagoya Grampus striker’s seventh goal in eighteen appearances for the Socceroos and will do his case for a place in the regular starting line up no harm at all. The Danes weren’t able to muster up much of a response and the match ended 1-0.

Having beaten neighbours New Zealand 2-1 in their send-off match in Melbourne last week and dispatched Denmark today, Pim Verbeek’s on-form Australia squad next face the USA in Roodepoort on the 5th of June, eight days before taking on Germany in their first World Cup Group D fixture in Durban. With Harry Kewell set to return from injury, the signs are looking promising for the Socceroos.

Denmark beat Senegal 2-0 in their own send-off game in Aalborg five days ago and perhaps need slightly longer to acclimatise to the South Africa conditions following this result. Their last chance to fine tune their preparations comes against South Africa in Atteridgeville on the 5th of June, nine days before they take on Holland in their opening World Cup Group E fixture in Johannesburg. The hosts are in fine form and will provide a stern test for Morten Olsen’s men.
