SAMARA, Russia, June 20 (Reuters) - France may have a glittering array of individual talent but Denmark are more of team, according to Australia coach Bert van Marwijk whose side take on the Danes in their second World Cup Group C match on Thursday.

Van Marwijk's side lost to the French in their opening game, putting up a brave fight before ultimately falling to a 2-1 defeat that left them needing to avoid a second reverse if they are to maintain realistic hopes of staying in the tournament.

KAZAN -- After a close look at flashy French artisans, Australia reckon their next World Cup assignment is like staring at their own reflection.

"They are quite similar to ourselves in the way they set up and the way they go about things," Australia defender Trent Sainsbury said.

"So it will be interesting to come up against a mirror."
