Two Austrians in the eleventh round of the group stage in the European Championship

German sports magazine Kicker included two Austrians in its team for the group stage of the European Championship.

On the other hand, centre-back Gernot Trauner was selected. The Feyenoord captain entered the game in the final half-hour of their European Championship opener against France and made a good impression.

The 32-year-old was allowed to start in the Group B match against Poland and scored the important 1-0 goal with a header. In the second half, the veteran player was forced to leave the field early due to injury, which is why he missed the match against the Netherlands. And also for the round of 16 against Türkiye next Tuesday (from 9:00 pm). Live Tape >>>), Trauner is very questionable.

Baumgartner in the storm alongside Mikautadze

The second Austrian in the eleventh “kicker” of the group stage of the European Championship is Christoph Baumgartner. RB Leipzig's attacking midfielder is in great form. Before the 1-0 defeat to France, the 24-year-old had scored in five successive international matches.

He scored against Poland to make it 2-1, and in the 3-2 win over the Netherlands, he provided the assist for Sabitzer's winning goal after coming on as a substitute. The technically adept creative player is likely to be used again from the start against Turkey.

With the presence of the Egyptian national team's top scorer George Mikautadze and goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili, there are also two Georgians in the team alongside Trauner and Baumgartner. Lamin Yamal, Jamal Musiala and Bruno Fernandes, among others, also made it to the specialized magazine's 11th list.
