Tomi Juric spearheads Australia's attack for their World Cup group decider against Peru.

Australia have made one change from the side which drew 1-1 with Denmark for today's vital World Cup group decider against Peru.

Tomi Juric comes in to spearhead the Socceroos attack in place of Andrew Nabbout as they aim to book their place in the knockout phase of the tournament.

Robbie Kruse has kept his place in the Australia lineup, fending off competition from Daniel Arzani, while veteran Tim Cahill is named on the bench again.

Already-eliminated Peru have made two changes from the side which lost 1-0 to France last time out.

Anderson Santamaria and Renato Tapia replace Alberto Rodriguez and Pedro Aquino in the South Americans' lineup.

Australia must beat Peru and hope that Denmark lose to France in Group C's other decider by two clear goals to stand any chance of progressing.

Australia: Ryan; Risdon, Sainsbury, Milligan, Behich; Mooy, Rogic, Jedinak; Leckie, Juric, Kruse
Subs: Degenek, Meredith, Cahill, Jurman, Luongo, Nabbout, Jones, Maclaren, Arzani, Vukovic, Petratos, Irvine

Peru: Gallese; Advincula, Ramos, Santamaria, Trauco; Yotun, Tapia; Carrillo, Cueva, Flores; Guerrero
Subs: Rodriguez, Corzo, Araujo, Hurtado, Ruidiaz, Caceda, Polo, Cartagena, Carvallo, Loyola, Aquino
