EM Qualification: The ÖFB team hopes to get a meaningful set

EM Qualification: The ÖFB team hopes to get a meaningful set

The scope in relation to the quality of the opponents is large. You can get Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium from the first pot, as well as Hungary or Poland. On the other hand, France and England were disqualified from the ÖFB team because they are also in the second pot. Sweden, Norway and Ireland are at the third stake, but duels with Armenia or Albania are also possible.

A lucky hand will also be needed in relation to the fourth pot, for example Greece and Turkey are available, but also Luxembourg, Kosovo, Azerbaijan and the Faroe Islands. Slovakia is probably the most annoying opponent from the fifth pot, while the Austrian Football Association would prefer to see a confrontation with Gibraltar or Malta.

After participating in the European Championships in 2016 and 2021, Alaba also wants to be part of the title fights with Austria in 2024.

“We are excited to see what Sunday’s draw will bring us. Regardless of the competitors, our clear goal is to qualify for Euro 2024 and then play a good role in the tournament,” said Rangnick, who will follow the draw in Frankfurt. In the Nations League, I’m convinced we can do it.”

The ÖFB team aims for a direct qualification in EM

Qualification for the European Championship begins in March 2023 and ends the following November. The first two groups from each of the ten groups qualify for the final round, and the remaining three places will be played through the Nations League.

Since Austria last participated in this competition in the top league, it can be assumed that David Alaba and Co. could compete in the play-off if they fail to qualify. However, since the European Championship was increased to 24 teams in 2016, the national team has always decided to participate via regular qualification for the European Championship.

For the draw, 53 teams are seeded according to the 2022/23 UEFA Nations League standings and will be divided into ten qualifying groups – seven groups of five and three groups of six. The four finalists of the UEFA Nations League will be divided into groups of five to qualify for the Nations League finals in June 2023.
