Denmark's Star Player: Christian Eriksen
There are fewer players at the FIFA World Cup™ who befit the talisman label better than the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder.
Denmark's on-field approach is heavily centred around their 26-year-old playmaker, who has been involved in 13 of the team's last 19 goals.
Eriksen will operate as Denmark's orchestrator in chief but is also gifted with both feet and a clean striker of the ball capable of testing opposition goalkeepers from any area in the final third.
Denmark's 1-0 win over Peru on Sunday morning extended a 16-match unbeaten run for the Scandinavian nation. The only other teams with longer undefeated streaks at the tournament are Belgium (20) and Spain (21).
The Danes also kept a fifth consecutive clean sheet against the South Americans, a feat that has never been achieved before for the nation.

This will be the fourth ever clash between Denmark and Australia, with the Danes registering a 3-1 win over Graham Arnold's Socceroos in their maiden fixture at Loftus Road in 2007. A Jon-Dahl Tomasson brace led the way for Denmark while Daniel Jensen was also on the scoresheet in their first meeting. Brett Emerton netted a consolation effort for Australia late on to offer some credibility to the scoreline.
The Socceroos would win the next encounter in 2010 thanks to a Josh Kennedy goal, while Denmark bested Australia 2-0 in their most recent clash in 2012 with a Daniel Agger penalty and Andreas Bjelland strike seeing the Danes off to Euro 2012 in winning form.
