  • Description

    Austria started off well in the European Nations football championship in their home capital, Vienna, on Wednesday (4 September) when they beat Wales two goals to one. But it was only in the last 25 minutes that they did it -- with goals by Kreuz and Kranki. Wales had taken the lead ten minutes before half-time, when a mix-up between Austrian Krieger and his goalkeeper gave Welshman Griffiths a successful chance at goal.

    Austria have been unbeaten in the Viennese Prater Stadium for three years. Other teams in their Cup grouping include Hungary and Luxembourg.

    SYNOPSIS: Austria began well at the start of the European Nations championship in their home capital, Vienna, on Wednesday night when they beat Wales two goals to one. But it was the Welsh -- Kicking from left to right in the darker strip -- who gained the first advantage. A mix-up between Austrian Krieger and his goalkeeper gave Welshman Griffiths his chance -- and he took it to put Wales one goal ahead minutes before the interval.

    Here's the goal again in slow motion.

    Although they're a technically inferior side, Wales -- here kicking off in the second half -- also gained the credits in the first part of the game -- for they played a spirited and plucky game against the mightier Austrians, who have not lost a game in the Prater Stadium here for three years now. But in the lat twenty-five minutes Austria drew level. Kreuz was the scorer.

    Shortly afterwards, Austria went ahead. It was krankl who scored the second -- and winning - goal.

    And this is how he did it ... a little slower this time.

    So Austria have a good start to their European Nations challenge. Also in the same grouping -- Hungary and Luxembourg.
