Austria vs. Germany - Football Match Report

Austria held on comfortably to record their first victory over Germany since 1986 as Franco Foda claimed his fifth straight victory as manager.

Neuer's chances of going to the World Cup as Low's first choice goalkeeper appeared to be boosted after he was handed the number one shirt when Die Mannschaft's squad numbers were confirmed.

He was unable to do anything about Martin Hinteregger and Alessandro Schopf's fine second-half strikes, though, as Germany's winless run stretched to five games.

"For the moment everything is on plan for Manuel Neuer. I think, it was a very satisfying comeback", Low added.

"We didn't put into practice what we had planned. We let the Austrians get back in the game".

The last thing they wanted to do was let him get hot. "We can't keep taking positives from losses". "It's coming to be a dynasty. He grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed free throw by George Hill in the final seconds of regulation with the game tied.

Loew is set to leave several World Cup winners out of the team for the friendly in Klagenfurt. "We have a lot to work on over the next two weeks".

Germany - who have not won in their previous four matches - weren't at their best once again, but their lacklustre performance is unlikely to worry Low who has the likes of Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and Mat Hummels to return to the fold before the Russian Federation showpiece begins.

Joachim Low's team have not won a game since October, drawing with England, France and Spain and losing to Brazil and now Austria since beating Azerbaijan.

Loew has said he will only take Neuer to Russian Federation as his first-choice 'keeper.

Neuer has not played since fracturing a metatarsal in his left foot last September - the second time he suffered the same injury in 2017.

This was Austria's first win over their neighbours in almost 32 years - dating back to October 1986 when Rudi Voeller scored West Germany's only goal in a 4-1 defeat in Vienna.

Germany will be out to defend their title in Russian Federation and will be one of the favourites to lift the trophy, yet they must guard against complacency.

"It's always great to win, especially against Germany".

"But they have some quality players and are still one of the favourites for the title".

Neuer has proven his fitness after eight months sidelined by a fractured foot in timely fashion, with four names to be cut ahead of Germany naming their final 23-man World Cup squad on Monday.
