Haiti are one of the eight teams who are competing in the FIFA Women's World Cup for the very first time. They are yet to win a game or score a goal in the tournament. Haiti suffered a narrow defeat in the hands of England and recorded the first loss of their World Cup campaign. Then in their second match they got defeated by a 10 women China in the 74th minute through a Wang Shuang penalty.

Haiti have now lost their last six internationals and failed to score in three of their last four matches, but they are still in the hunt for a last-16 spot. The 53rd-ranked side in the world will progress to the knockout rounds if they can beat Denmark and England win against China in the group's other game.

"The players know that this is a crucial game, I don't need to tell them that or repeat it. The most important thing for us is to remain focused on the match and on what happens on the field. The players can't afford to think of anything else, they need to concentrate on their game and on their duels. We'll see how far that takes us."

Lars Sondergaard, Denmark coach.

On the other hand, Denmark also gained qualification in the World Cups for the first time since 2007 and will look to make the most of it. They won their first match against China by 1-0, thanks to Amalie Vangsgaard's goal. But unfortunately they faced defeat in their second Matchday against England, where Lauren James scored an amazing goal.

After two rounds of matches, Denmark are sitting in second position and are level on points with third-placed China, while they are three points behind of the group leaders, England. Having failed to make it out of the group at their last two World Cup finals, the Danes are looking to reach the knockout rounds for the first time since 1995.

Team News

Not fully-fit against the Chinese, Haiti's gem Melchie Dumornay had to watch the first half from the sidelines, only appearing after the break. Delepine's staff will have done everything possible to get the Olympique Lyonnais player ready for their 'final' against Denmark. Haiti are already without defender Jennyfer Limage, who suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament against England and will miss the rest of the tournament.

For the Danes, coach Lars Sondergaard looks like he will again have a full squad to pick from. Having strengthened the midfield to largely resist the English attack, the 64-year-old is expected to return to the 4-3-3 that took his team to victory against the Chinese, a system in which the team's star player Pernille Harder appeared less isolated up front than she did against England.
