Congratulations France! :clapping:
Image

In Euro 2020 they started with a 1-0 win against Germany, an own-goal scored by Hummels.

Now they started with a 1-0 win against Austria, an own-goal scored by Wober.

...

In Euro 2020, after that opening win, they couldn't win any of their remaining matches.

Now, after this opening win, will they win any of their next matches? :grin1:

Confirmed. The French Football Federation said a mask will be made for their captain, but it is not yet known if he will play against the Netherlands on Friday.

Anyway this doesn't explain why France have wasted so much but hopefully we haven't been punished.
Austria 18, France 10
Thanks. I thought that it was more than this.

Note that Austria ran more than 119 kms in this game, which is an excellent total vs 112.6 for France, which was not that bad as the average so far is 114.4 kms.

The record is for the Serbia-England game.
124.7 kms for Serbia and 127 kms for England (!). This surprises me a lot as I felt that England were very tired in their second half.
Don't forget to post your predictions for the new season

Uefa Euro on TV in Austria
the 51 matches are split between ORF (state TV) 20 matches and Servus TV (private TV by Red Bull Media) 31 matches. On both TV channels all matches are free to everybody.
ORF is just average qualitywise partly even boring as almost over decades the same moderators do report but some former players as co commentators increase interest a little.
Not so Servus TV. They are revolutionizing the viewing experience with their innovative coverage of UEFA Euro 2024 incl. streaming (interactive viewer apps, comprehensive live statistics, exciting background stories and well-founded first hand analyses). Four former ÖFB team players do report from EURO 2024 as ServusTV experts. In addition, there is the cult duo Jan Åge Fjörtoft and Steffen Freund already well known from the broadcasts of the UEFA Champions League (free for everybody in Austria with a great "show" every Wednesday until midnight for Cl and on Thursday for EL and ECL - there is broadcast of Servus TV in Germany too but without CL rights).
In total, the ServusTV experts have played 333 international matches for their countries, namely Austria, Norway and Germany.
It's fun to watch them over the whole evening esp at Public viewings as you get good information, interesting talks garnished with a lot of humor and great entertainment all in one. I do not posses a subscription for sports but if one time Servus TV sports would charge a fee for their service I probably would book it.

Będzie brutalnie”: Poland already announced a "fighting game". For Austrian coach Rangnick it's simply an endgame. After the exhausting and intensive match against France in which AUT hardly could find a way to get through the French line. Les Blancs showed a great pressing which AUT was supposed to do. This often ended in fast transitions and France has created very dangerous moments in our defence where Patrick Pentz showed to be the right man at the right place. He brilliantly won all 3 duels with Mbappe whose injury came from a very unfortunate but fatal collision. Good luck to Kilian to recover quickly! :up:
There will be some changes in our team. Trauner as CB might start and in the last weeks convincing Wimmer might start as well to strenghten the offence even Baumgartner who is in a great form could start as false number 9. However the Polish team in person of Lewandowski are able to present a real and true number 9. But this probably will not change the Polish style of the game they might again play like against NED which was a perfect lesson in right time for our team to put even more attention to them.
The Olympiastadion of Berlin with their 71.000 fans will be full of red and white coulor 🇵🇱 🇦🇹 like probably never before.

Really bad weather forecast for Berlin this afternoon and evening. Heavy, intensive rain, strong wind and storms. If it turns out to be true, match will be played in very bad weather conditions.

maybe same conditions like in the 'waterball' match in Frankfurt between Germany and Poland at WC 1974 where Poland with one of their best teams ever with players like Tomaszewski, Lato, Gadocha, Deyna, Szarmach, Kasperczak and so on... :applause: lost very unlucky 0:1 in this match. Just the rain saved Germany then for the Polish wonderteam. Before this Poland beat Italy 2:0 and eleminated England with 2:0 home win in a qualifier in front of 120.000 spectators in Chorzów. They were much more than a dark horse then they were title contender along with Netherlands and Germany.

That was the most important match in the history of Polish football and it was played in terrible conditions, as you said - like in the waterball match. It should have been postponed and played in normal circumstances. I don't say Poland would have won (and only a win would give Poland the final), but we will never know...

I hope today's match will be played in good conditions. In 1974 vs Germany, the ball simply stopped on the water and it was rather a football comedy than a football match.

Poland should be happy with a draw at HT. Austria had more and better chances. I hope Lewandowski will enter the pitch after the break because Piątek and Buksa can't hold the ball for a second up front and Austrian defenders simply outplay them.

poor and slow match with lots of mistakes and no risks taken. Can only get better 2nd half! Grillitsch and Arnautovic just weak. Wimmer must come in and Romano Schmidt and Gregoritsch too.

Plus xG is 1.00 to 0.48 for Poland. From the feeling it looked like Austria was a bit more dangerous, but the draw at HT was okay.

apart from the goals I have not seen worthy chances. Baumgartner scored 6 times in last 7 matches. He is one of the few highlights today.
Edit: good chance by AUT now.
Ralf take Arnautovic out please!
but in penalty shooting he is good
