Team boss Werner Gregoritsch’s selection defeated Saudi Arabia’s 10-0 (6-0) in a test match at their training camp in Spain on Saturday. A more serious yardstick will follow on Monday (3 p.m. / live ORF Sport +) with another test against Poland, also in San Pedro del Pinatar.
Chelsea legioner Thierno Ballo appeared against the visibly overwhelmed Saudis before the break as a triple scorer (2nd, 3rd, 39th). Austria Vienna’s Patrick Wimmer (8th, 43rd) and WSG Tirol offensive man Tobias Anselm (49th, 53rd) each scored a double. The other FB goals in relatively strong winds in the Murcia region were scored by junior Adamu (29th), loaned to St. Gallen from Salzburg, Rapid back defender Lukas Sulzbacher (61st) and Salzburg hope Nicolas Seiwald (82nd). Poland had recently also led the Saudi Arabians 7-0 (2-0).
“It was nice to see how quickly we got into the game and this willingness to implement things was shown by the players in all training sessions. The opponent kept having problems with our pace and we made good use of that,” said the team Gregoritsch.
Nice legioner Flavius Daniliuc, who led the selection as captain, emphasized the quick mutual understanding. “We have known each other for five or six days now. It is really impressive how we were able to implement all the tactical guidelines today. The game showed that we are very good.”
It will get serious for Austria’s new U21s for the first time on June 8th with the start of the European Championship qualification at home against Estonia. The other opponents in the fight for a ticket for the 2023 finals in Georgia and Romania are Croatia, Norway, Finland and Azerbaijan.
