Austria need luck admits coach – Group B news Euro 08

Austria:

Austria coach Josef Hickersberger has admitted luck needs to be on his team’s side if they are to beat Germany on Monday and clinch a place in the quarter-finals.

A last-gasp penalty allowed Austria to take a point from a 1-1 draw with Poland in their last Group B game that maintained their interest in the tournament.

Hickersberger said: “We hope to show some of the form that we had against Poland also in this game, though against great opponents.

“We also need a bit of luck in the game. We need to adapt to the way Germany are playing, it’s not like we can play our own game.

“Germany will take us seriously and they will be putting a great effort into it.

“We have the necessary passion in our game now – I am simply looking forward to it and hope it will be an exciting game until the very end.”

Germany:

Marcell Jansen looks set to miss Germany’s final Group B clash against Austria after suffering a shoulder injury in the 2-1 defeat to Croatia.

However, Lukas Podolski and Philipp Lahm should be able to play in Monday’s encounter after recovering from minor knocks.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff confirmed: “There will be no problem with Podolski or Lahm, but it doesn’t look so good for Jansen.”

Torsten Frings is looking forward to the game in Vienna, with Germany needing a draw against Austria to reach the quarter-finals.

The midfielder said: “It’s going to be a great game. We’ll be playing in front of 50,000 fans on a major stage against the hosts. What could be better? It will give us an edge.

“It’s our fault this match has taken on the character of a final, but we know we’re good enough to beat Austria. If we’re tense you could call it a positive form of anticipation.

“This is a much better team than the one that went out in the first phase four years ago in Portugal.

“We’ve played with this system for four years now and we can’t let all the progress we’ve made hang on one match against Austria. We’re not going to change the way we play now.”

Germany will also be without the suspended Bastian Schweinsteiger who was sent off against Croatia.

Croatia:

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has confirmed his intention to rest several key players who are threatened by suspension for their final group match against Poland.

Croatia have already booked their passage to the quarter-finals as Group B winners and Robert Kovac, Josip Simunic, Darijo Srna and Luka Modric, who all have one booking to their names, will play no part in the final game.

The likes of Niko Kranjcar, Ivica Olic and Niko Kovac could also be rested as Bilic looks to keep his players fresh for the knock-out stages.

“Players with yellow cards will not play against Poland,” he confirmed.

Meanwhile, Bilic has revealed his relief at avoiding the prospect of facing Group A winners Portugal in the quarter-finals. “I am quite happy that we avoided mighty Portugal,” he continued. “We are satisfied but both the Czechs and Turkey have their own strengths and weaknesses.”
