Its all to play for in this winner takes all clash in Rustenburg.
Denmark forward Nicklas Bendtner still hasn’t fully recovered from a groin injury but has started the two previous games and looks set to play again. Defender Simon Kjaer is suspended, so Per Kroldrup is favourite to step in.
Japan coach Takeshi Okada is expected to name the same starting line-up for the third consecutive match.
Suspended: Kjaer (Denmark). One booking from suspension: Sorensen (Denmark); Abe (Japan). (BBC Sport)

Denmark will believe they have the edge in this must win match in Rustenburg. Morten Olsen’s men will be buoyed by the manner in which they came from behind to defeat Cameroon whilst Japan were decidedly average against Holland and seem pretty much toothless up front.
Arsenal man Nicklas Bendtner will once again be crucial for the Danes and if the big forward is fit then he may pose Takeshi Okada a number of problems.
