The Socceroos are set to embark on a must win fixture however as we get closer to kick off, Peru may already have the edge.
Both sets of fans have travelled to Russia in large numbers, however, it cannot be ignored that Peru have been one of standout set of fans at this World Cup. They could well both out-number and out-sing the Aussies at the Fisht Olympic Stadium.
Incredible scenes at the Sochi Fanfest have seen both Australians and Peruvians battle it out in good spirits with the Peruvians clearly triumphant.
Despite not receiving a single point in Russia and having been eliminated already, the Peruvian fans take confidence into this match and hope to finalise the campaign on a winning note.
For the Peruvians, there is no doubt that they will win this match.
Whilst Aussies outnumbered the Danish in Samara, it cannot be argued that the small group of Danish fans could be heard and were at times louder than the Australian contingent.
The task in Sochi is none-the-easier and all Australians will need to unite to show their support behind the Socceroos.
Today should also be taken as a lesson for Australian supporters on the level of active support we should strive to achieve. Australians love to get around the Socceroos, however, there may well be a strong case for new chants.
The ambition to create new chants needs to develop to allow the Australian footballing culture to organically develop and flourish. Only at this point will Australia's true footballing culture be demonstrated to the world.
