Austria vs Northern Ireland Prediction Today
Marko Arnautovic, Austria’s main striker, has assured that he will be on the pitch on Friday despite not being in the best of his physical condition. He suffered a knee injury and as his team, West Ham, was in a difficult situation in the Pre-League, eventually speeding up his return to the field.In this way, it has not yet fully recovered. Still, the 29-year-old has said he intends to continue to work for both the club and the national team until he has time to fully recover.
The game against Northern Ireland is considered crucial, but the circumstances must cause the top scorer to gain a place in the second match that Austria will do in the period that FIFA (International Football Federation) has reserved for clashes between national teams in October. On the 16th, the Austrians will face Denmark.
The injuries also affect athletes from Northern Ireland. However, the players have not shown signs of having the same disposition of Arnautovic and, in this way, the casualties for the match are accumulating.Striker Kyle Lafferty did not even show up for testing. After not being able to defend Rangers in the duel against Herts, his former team, facing the Scottish Championship weekend round, himself tried to warn that he could not participate in this Friday’s match in Austria and also of the next North-Irish team’s duel in the League of Nations against Bosnia and Herzegovina, already in the second round of the tournament. The statement was made via a telephone call on Sunday night for coach Michael O’Neill. The 31-year-old has 68 appearances for the national team.
O’Neill soon found the replacement. He called up Kyle Vassell, a 25-year-old Rotherdam striker who plays for the Premier League. He was called by the first guest.
Gareth McAuley and Conor Washington also called for a cleanup of their next two games. But not out of contusion. The athletes claimed personal reasons. In that way, Tom Flanagan was called back to the national team, as was Aaron Hughes, who was out of the list for September due to the injury.
