Denmark is in the final stage of preparations in Nizhny Novgorod this Saturday before their crucial match against Croatia in the second round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Age Hareide's squad held pre-match training on the Lokomotiv's pitch in Nizhny, before answering questions at a press conference. The Danish head coach admitted that Croatia was a skilful team and had skilful players, noting... Еще that Denmark would need «to play differently» in order to progress. Captain Simon Kjaer said none of his team mates were satisfied with reaching the last 16, rather the impetus was to go further. Pressed on whether he was tired of always being compared to his father Peter, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel seemed exasperated, saying he expected 'more' from journalists. He went on to admit that this was 'part of life' and 'inevitable' at the World Cup. The Danes booked their place in the knockout stage by finishing second in the 2018 World Cup's Group C with an unbeaten record, following a narrow 1-0 win over Peru and two draws against Australia and France. Their best result in World Cup history was their quarter-final appearance at France 1998, losing to eventual runners-up Brazil. The winner of the Croatia-Denmark fixture will face either Spain or hosts Russia.
