“I am happy with the final third, but not how we started the match. We did not play our straight match,” said team boss Roger Bader, criticizing the first stage. The intense program also left its mark. “Four games in five days, no other team has played that before. There was a power shortage of 10, 15 percent, the last bit of energy,” the Swiss explained.
Austria, this time again with David Kickert in goal and captain Thomas Raffel, who rested against the Czech Republic, got off to a good start. In the first power game, Heinrich scored to make the score 1-0. In the expected tight match, the shot backfired in a direct majority match. After a poor Raffl pass, Rosselli Olsen completed the counter-attack to equalize.
At the start of the mid-term, Norway took the lead for the first time. Martinsen scored from an acute angle in an Austrian penalty kick that was about to expire, and after a video check, the goal was calculated as a possible foul for the goalkeeper.
Badr’s team tied through Haddom, but Norway quickly found an answer. With six outfield players and a penalty kick, Roy Mark scored to make it 3-2, not least because Kickert lost his racket. In the final third, Rosselli Olsen took advantage of a double advantage, Austria bounced back through Schneider and then had their best stage, but a tie was no longer possible. Ronald got the final score in the empty goal.

“It was a very important match for us, we could have done a lot, but there is no reason to bury your head in the sand,” said Manuel Ganal. “We got a small bonus in the first three matches. We still have more chances, the mood is still good. Gather the strength, draw the right conclusions and continue to attack,” the striker demanded.
