This time, we'll beat England without going to penalty kicks. Smiley

Austria vs. Turkey - hard to say.

Austria still holds quite a favorable balance against the Turks at home in Vienna.

5 wins so far, 2 losses and 1 draw.

Maybe 1:1 for today.

5 minutes into the game, Austria already leads Turkey by 2:0 ...

No joke.

After 1 minute, the Austrian with Turkish (!!!) origin Veli Kavlak scored and in the 5th minute, the Turkish goalkeeper was almost sent off the field by the referee because he badly fouled an Austrian striker. In the end he got the yellow card and the Austrian scored in the penalty shot.

What's up ?

Almost the 3rd goal by the Austrians, 15 minutes into the game.

Too bad it was ruled slightly offside.

Watch out Germany ! If we still play like this on September 11, we'll wipe you off the field ... !!!

The Turks seem to have awaken a bit now, at least they are moving to the goal now sometimes.

The first half is over and Austria still ahead by 2-0.

The first 15 minutes were really interesting, the following 30 minutes not so much. There were many offsides, but nothing too dangerous on both sides.

I think it's time to start the 2012-13 thread after today's relevance-surgically-removed friendlies.

Why is it mostly that players with ancestry of the opposing country score the goals against the opposing country ?

Yesterday, a Mexican American scored for the US against Mexico.

Yesterday, a Turkish Austrian scored for Austria against Turkey.

A while ago, Mesut Özil, a Turkish German, scored for Germany against Turkey.

And so on ...

Are they extra motivated to score against their country of origin ?

Apparently, Ron Zieler made history yesterday as the first ever German goalkeeper sent off in an international match.
There's a first time for everything, I suppose.
