Euro 2020 Austria

Austria was off to a bad start in their qualifying group for Euro 2020 but recovered to secure a second spot. Austria is in Group C alongside Netherlands, Ukraine, and North Macedonia.

Goalkeeper: Daniel Bachmann

Daniel Bachmann plays for Watford in the Championship. Bachmann capitalized on a broken finger by Ben Foster, keeping 13 clean sheets in the 23 games he played. He has not been capped yet for the national team and will look to stake his claim for the Number 1 jersey for Austria at Euro 2020.

Defender: David Alaba

The soon-to-be Real Madrid defender is the most important player in the Austrian setup. He is one of the most versatile players in world football and can play in up to seven positions. Alaba rarely plays in defence for Austria and is mostly part of the engine room. In recent times, he has been forced to revert to his left-back position.

Midfielder: Marcel Sabitzer

Marcel Sabitzer much like Alaba is one of the most versatile players on the attacking end of the pitch. Sabitzer has partnered Alaba in the middle of the pitch at times while on other occasions he has partnered Marko Arnautovic at striker. Sabitzer brings a lot of energy to the game while his industry and enterprise helps him to stay on the front foot.

Forward: Marko Arnautovic 

The former West Ham forward will no doubt be itching to set Euro 2020 alight come the summer. The mercurial marksman remains a potent force up front despite trading the technical pastures of Premier League football for the Chinese Super League in 2019.

Predicted line-up:

Daniel Bachmann; Andreas Ulmer, Aleksandar Dragovic, Martin Hinteregger, Stefan Lainer; David Alaba, Julian Baumgartlinger, Stefan Ilsanker, Marcel Sabitzer, Valentino Lazarrd; Marko Arnautovic
