The ÖFB team celebrated in the qualifiers of the European Championship in the north of Macedonia, a sovereign victory by 4-1 (report of game >>>), that could have been much better.
The notes for ÖFB kickers are correspondingly good:
Laola1 analyzes the performance of all ÖFB actors and distributes degrees (1 = very good, 2 = good, 3 = satisfactory, 4 = sufficient, 5 = not enough).
HEINZ LINDNER (Grasshopper Zürich / 28 international), 90 minutes, note: 3
Uh-oh! Lindner and Hinteregger will know who forgave a command here, but a goal like this for 0: 1 definitely does not look good. Of course, this especially the goalkeeper looks bad, even if it was probably not his failure. Moreover, the number 1 in Austria, as well as Slovenia, did not have many opportunities to prove their skills, but at one point or another, it was fortunate that Northern Macedonia proved to be misdirected – for example, the best chance Pandev in the 31st minute.
His rating for Heinz Lindner?
STEFAN LAINER (Red Bull Salzburg / 15/0), 90 minutes, note 3
The right-back has more defensive duties in ÖFB-Dress than in Salzburg, but that does not mean he has not dared to go ahead in ÖFB-Powerplay in phases. However, he hardly managed to put any significant accent in the game, in addition to his strong kick in the goal in the 78th minute. That the national team was relatively compact but also with his merit.

ALEKSANDAR DRAGOVIC (Bayer Leverkusen / 74/1), 45 minutes, note: 1
For the ten-year anniversary of the national team following their debut in Serbia in June 2009, Dragovic performed in the best form but this time unfortunately due to a 45 minute injury in the adductor. Already strong against Slovenia, he delivered in Skopje a large half. Built like a tower against the offensive forces of northern Macedonia, bothered where it was, it always carried one leg in the middle, and meanwhile, also had time for the deliberate setting of the game. If a bad scene entered just before the break, he corrected it himself. The fact that "Drago" had to get injured in the cabin at half-time was, of course, bad news. In personal terms, however, a winner of the course.
Your rating for Aleksandar Dragovic?
MARTIN HINTEREGGER (Eintracht Frankfurt / 41/3), 90 minutes, note: 2
Oh no! What a piece of clowning The defender took the north of Macedonia by 1 x 0 in the lead – a goal against, after a bad disagreement with Lindner. This can happen, but of course it should not. The Frankfurt-Legionnaire bite in the face of his costal injury usually in the teeth, which is commendable and speaks for his character. Out of the game the goal itself did its dry part, which was important. That he may be brought in by the lapse of peace was not to be expected anyway. After another Dragovic take the lead in the break, he led Hinteregger after debutant Posch debut cautiously.
Your rating for Martin Hinteregger?
ANDREAS ULMER (Red Bull Salzburg / 12/0), 90 minutes, note: 3
Why so hesitant? In minute 50, Ulmer had the opportunity to just appear, but did not dare. But if the front runners are difficult to score for a long time, you can try. The left-back tried well in the first minute when he prepared Arnautovic's early chance with a good pass. In 1: 1 he was involved in training. However, these positive scenes were also nullified by inactivity – probably because, on the left, this time was generally less than normal.
Your rank for Andreas Ulmer?
KONRAD LAIMER (RB Leipzig / 2/0), 90 minutes, note: 1
How strong, but also how sensitive! Even his soulful shot for the long Kreuzeck in the 26th minute would have won more. In the end, his wonderful cross at Lazaro helped break the red-white-red spell in a 1×1 draw. But the Leipzig legionnaire could do this differently. After his excellent debut against Slovenia, the Leipzig legionnaire was naturally allowed to run again and again and again attracted attention with his typical aggression. As the eighth offered, he had offensively again and again his legs in the game, but also stuffed defensive holes. It was his beautiful double pass with Sabitzer, which allowed the 2: 1 penalty. He later did not have the 4: 1, but his own goal goes largely on his own. Again a remarkably good performance – two international, two big performances. Inevitably, one wonders: Why did your debut expect so much?
Your rating for Konrad Laimer?
STEFAN ILSANKER (RB Leipzig / 33/0), 90 minutes, note: 2
That the Leipzig Legionnaire was the substitute for Alaba was a small surprise, but it made sense to give stability to a last, rather small, vulnerable elf in sleeping balls. So at least the basic idea. In addition, he is practically the eighth "Red Bull Brother" in the initial eleven, in which in a 4-3-3 system for the first time gave the six. He knew this role wisely and above all brought his usual fighter qualities, distinguished by several victories in the ball. The veteran, however, also took the ball well in the game forward again and again, especially striking early in Sabitzer's first shot. All in all, your acceptance definitely was worth it.
Your rating for Stefan Ilsanker?
XAVER SCHLAGER (Red Bull Salzburg / 11/1), 90 minutes, note: 2
The Salzburg kicker passes as "Mr. Balleroberung" – unfortunately, especially at the beginning of some well-distributed balls, but also again and again bad passes, sometimes unnecessary. As the game progressed, however, accuracy increased, he was offensively present as well as defensively, and in general, it can already be argued that the blond boy is hard to imagine the starting lineup. His turbo and his relentless dedication undoubtedly do him good.
Your rating for Xaver Schlager?
VALENTINO LAZARO (Hertha BSC / 23/2), 90 minutes, note: 1
Provocatively, it may be thought that Lazaro is the greatest "profiteer" of the fault of Alaba. If the ÖFB team is much more than the Bayern star, let's say left, this time the right side would be much more dominant. The Legionnaire Hertha also found many rooms he knew to use again and again – as in his cross pass after bouncing Arnautovic's seat. Somehow, it was also logical that Lazaro was the only one before the interval to save his nerves from the opponent's goal and scored the 1: 1. After the break, he also acted hesitantly in the final. However, a good performance.
Your rating for Valentino Lazaro?
MARKO ARNAUTOVIC (West Ham / 81/24), 89 minutes, note: 1
Dry powder! At least the penalty – Arnautovic has taken the penalty, as befits a captain and Goalgetter, the responsibility and sovereign exploited. Good too – as well as the filled by him counter to 3: 1! But if a player with such a strong goalkeeper is completely satisfied with the performance of this game despite a double-pack? After 38 seconds, he did not stay calm in front of the goal of the North Macedonia, in the 24 minutes he failed twice in an even more promising position. A little more concentration and could have been a more relaxed game – and he could even have fattened his account next to the goals of international matches 23 and 24. In addition to these scenes, Arnautovic can not accuse anyone of the fact that the loop was heavy too much for him. In the 81st international game for the third captain, he has brought again the last competitive game of the season and now can continue the deserved holiday.
Your rating for Marko Arnautovic?
MARCEL SABITZER (RB Leipzig / 37/5), 89 minutes, note: 2
The handshake gate is forgotten – Fuck again gave confidence to the Leipzig Legionnaire. This time, however, he did not play center, but moved to the left wing. At least in the goals, Sabitzer could not pay the trust. And that was a feat! Three times, he darkened in the most promising position – whether his safety goal, post or goalkeeper Dimitrievski, Sabitzer always met his master. His last goal of ÖFB dates from the autumn of 2017, when he met Uruguay at the Foda debut. That should give you thought. Positive, of course, other scenes: After a good double with Laimer, he got the 2 to 1 penalty, and it was worth it. His help at 3: 1 helped to make the cover on him.
Your rating for Marcel Sabitzer?
Stefan Posch (TSG Hoffenheim / 1/0), 45 minutes, note: 2
The Hoffenheim legionary replaced the injured Dragovic early in the second half and celebrated his A-Team debut. Replacing the strong and above all experienced Leverkusen legionnaire as a rookie was clearly not an easy task. However, Styria joined the ÖFB team relatively quietly. Anyway, he did not notice nervousness.
Your rating for Stefan Posch?
GUIDO BURGSTALLER (Schalke / 25/2), 1 minute – very short
A minute before the end of regular time came the Schalke striker for Arnautovic in the field.
LOUIS SCHAUB (1 FC Cologne / 12/5), 1 minute – used very short
He replaced Sabitzer at injury time and brought in three, four midfield ball contacts.
