The parallels to the 2: 4 in March 2019 in the European Championship qualification, they are obvious. Not only that the game was the same as on Saturday in Haifa on the stage, it was also another Austrian at Israel at the sideline. It was still Andreas Duke in 2019, the ÖFB was demonstrated this time from the former sports director of the association, Willibald Ruttensteiner.

Also Eran Zahavi should gradually be a term to Austrians. Six goals reach him in the past three games against the Alpine Republic, on Saturday he met 3-0 and 5: 2.

Austria had had to do without some well-known forces, so the Bundesliga legionaries Xaver Schlager, Julian Baumgartlinger, Stefan Lainer, Sasa Kalajdzic and Marcel Sabitzer all. But that did not justify the performance, at least Keeper Daniel Bachmann said. Wesides how bad, five goals can not get against Israel. There was a lot of missing today, said the Keeper of FC Watford. We know that the catastrophic was.

The Alaba notes for ÖFB-Blamage in Haifa

Also David Alaba also found clear words, although he did not want to talk all badly (I believe that we have made a very good game in the first half). Very bitter would have been bleeded by individual mistakes. We did not manage to build the atmosphere in the last few days, as we had her a few months ago. Austria had failed at the EM in the second round of the two at the later tournament winner of Italy.

The main responsible is the coach, and called Franco Foda. The defendant (dragovic, creature) were bitter punished, so the native Mainz. But there are several factors – short preparation, some players who are not there – but we do not want to look for excuses. The difference was just the efficiency in front of the gate.

Alaba and Foda defend triple chain

The guilt was not the system conversion to triple chain, since Alaba (the system did not play a role today) and the coach agreed. It was not on the system. Everyone has seen how well we have played forward mainly in the first half. Foda explained that you can discuss everything about everything, but we could have done 3: 1, then the game runs in a different direction. But if you collected five goals, you did not do something right.

In the second half, Foda turned to a four-chain, so you’ve wanted to try something like Alaba. But also this measure has not as we have shown, as we have introduced that.

On Tuesday against Scotland, the ÖFB is already heavily under pressure on how the group f table proves. Unfortunately, the first place has gotten to God in a long distance. It gets very difficult, so realistic you have to be, Foda said. Realistic is still ranked two. In the fight for the play-off rank, there are currently three points on Israel, the third Scotland has collected a counter more than Austria.
