at Heinz lindner It does not fit that the Austrian national football team missed its last chance to win a victory in the League League of strikers on Thursday with its 0-0 draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina. The goalkeeper saved his team for one goal or another to the goal and saved the ÖFB team at least one point.
However, he did not feel that he was the winner of the Bosnian match, Lindner stressed on Saturday, before heading to Belfast. "I am glad that I succeeded and helped the team, but we were all in the same boat and did not climb, so no one won."
Moreover, the top Austrian now has the motivation to finish the international match on Sunday (18.00 CET / live ORF) with a victory away against Northern Ireland. “We want to sell well and get three points,” said Lindner.
The keeper is aware of the fact that the match against the finalists of the EURO 2016 quarter has more than statistical value. "We need to score as many points as possible in order to improve our chances of getting into the playoffs of the League of Nations if it does not work in the qualifying rounds of the European Championship."
However, the prospect is relatively good, regardless of the result in Belfast: ÖFB-Elf could close the league B-table in the worst case in eighth place.

The main problem of a 26-year-old child is to confront what he considers to be a strong counterpart. “Northern Irish, of course, do not want to go home with zero points, we must be ready for an aggressive opponent from the very beginning, but we will fight against it and want to win,” said the Salzburg human rights activist.
