Football Results

Austria came back from two goals down to produce one of the comeback football results of the midweek friendly action. John Hendry opened the scoring in the 28th minute before John McGinn doubled their advantage in the 56th minute. Michael Gregoritsch pulled one back for the home side before Alessandro Schopf scored the equalizer with seven minutes left. This was a second consecutive draw for Scotland which have six wins and two draws from their last eight games.

Managers Reaction 

Scotland manager Steve Clarke: “It is a difficult place to come. If you said before the game that we would get two goals and a draw, a lot of people would have said that would be OK. Don’t forget, at 2-0 I immediately made three substitutions, so you lose that little bit of rhythm, that little bit of continuity in the game. The idea tonight was to get more people on the pitch. You are allowed six subs, I wanted to give some players minutes on the pitch. I don’t understand why the feel-good factor would go. It is eight games unbeaten, and we go into a competitive program in June and we are in a good place, don’t worry about that. There is always something you can find in performances to improve on.”

“Ball retention could have been better in the game, some decent moments in the first half especially, another good goal off a set play and a fantastic second goal. From the 2-0 position, it is always a little bit disappointing when you don’t see the game out with a win but it is a tough place to come. Austria was competitive, they wanted to give their manager a good send-off. So we will take the draw, go away unbeaten, and look forward to competitive games in June.”
