World Cup TV guide: Australia channels, kick-off times, dates and schedule

With France already into the round of 16, the ESPN FC guys share their thoughts on Denmark and Australia's chances of escaping Group C.
Argentina's chances of making the round of 16 took a blow after a huge loss to Croatia, while Kylian Mbappe became France's youngest-ever World Cup goal scorer.

The FIFA World Cup in Russia has begun, with Australia taking on the rest of the globe in football's showpiece event.

The Socceroos followed up their 2-1 loss against France on Saturday with a 1-1 draw with Denmark on Thursday night. Mile Jedinak scored from the penalty spot, but the result leaves Australia with work to do against Peru to reach the knockouts and could need help from France when they play the Danes on the final matchday for Group C.
