SAMARA, Russia (Reuters) - Australia coach Bert van Marwijk stuck with Andrew Nabbout up front for the World Cup Group C clash against Denmark on Thursday, resisting calls to bring in veteran Tim Cahill or youngster Daniel Arzani.

Van Marwijk named the same side who lost 2-1 to France in their opening match.

For Denmark, Lasse Schone replaced the injured William Kvist in midfield as coach Age Hareide named an otherwise unchanged side from the one that beat Peru 1-0.

Playmaker Christian Eriksen starts behind striker Nicolai Jorgensen for the Danes.
