Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho has predicted Australia to finish second in Group C and qualify for the 2018 World Cup Round of 16.
France was undeniably Mourinho’s pick to top Group C. However, second place would come down to a “big fight” between Australia, Denmark, and Peru.
“I think France, no problems, will finish first,” Mourinho said.
“Big fight to finish second. I’ll go for a surprise. Come on Australia, let’s finish second!”
If the Socceroos finish second, they would go on to face Argentina in the knockout stage.
