UEFA Nations League Austria vs Northern Ireland
Austria started the League of Nations with a short away defeat in Bosnia-Herzegovina (1-0), and must absolutely restart in this competition not to mortgage their chances of qualifying. Foda’s selection could count on its 50,000 Ernst-Happel-Stadion fans to clinch a long-awaited victory. At home, the Austrians are formidable and beat including Uruguay (2-1), Russia (1-0), Germany (2-1) and recently Sweden (2-0). Austria has only one failure on its last 11 receptions, it was against Brazil (0-3), on June 10th. Northern Ireland will have to put up the barbed wire to get a positive result and wipe out its first defeat in this League of Nations against Bosnia-Herzegovina (1-2) at home. O’Neill’s selection ended his 3-match mini-series to no avail (Panama, Costa Rica, Bosnia and Herzegovina) with an easy win over Israel (3-0) on his last outing.
