so what happened?

Austria didn't look as bad as expected in the Euro Championships. An even more improved France under Karel Bruckner :proud: ?

Or was it just embarrassing stuff from France?

To think Ronald Koeman said no to the Austrian job cos he reckoned you guys had no chance of qualifying lol

I loved how the boys fighted for every ball, great performance!! :proud::proud::proud:

We did pretty well, but it didn't really surprise. We were very organized and the French team always tried to threaten us with crosses and long balls, that was pretty much the worst they could do because we were rock-solid in the air. :thmbup:

Janko, what a performance. :thmbup:

I was busy travelling to Spain and watch Bosnia lose 1-0 to the reigning european champions on wednesday but finding out that Austria had beaten France later that night solved atleast some of the dissapointment. First 2-2 against Italy followed by a convincing win against France leaves Brückner looking like has gotten a firm hand on things. Hickersbergers work over the last two years in introducing the current players must not be forgotten either. He prepared the ground by doing so - and under Brückners guidance they`ll blossom. Hopefully Austria goes to Lithuania and puts in a professional performance tomorrow securing another 3 points in what could turn out a very difficult game.
