Australia qualified for the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup by defeating Denmark 1-0 and joining France, which was beaten 1-0 away by Tunisia.

In the last round of Group D, a goal by Matthew Leckie in the 60th minute clinched the victory for the Socceroos, who finished second in Group D, with the same six points as leaders France, who were beaten by a goal by Wahbi Khazri in the 58th minute.

Tunisia had four points and Denmark had one, dropping just for the second time in group play, like in 2010, and unlike 1986, 1998, 2002, and 2018.

After the match, Australians in Qatar and at home celebrated wildly.

Next game: Saturday, 03 December
