At 1:1 on Thursday, the victory was only overcome by a penalty goal in extra time. “The team has grown as a group and has international experience. Players in the English Premier League have been playing at a consistently high level,” said Clarke, explaining the current ups and downs should the World Cup take part.
But the Scots will have to be patient. Their home playoff match against Ukraine has been postponed until June due to Russia’s attack on Ukraine. The winner meets Austrian winner Wales, who won 2-1 on Thursday. For this his team should regain confidence. Despite the dismay of FB players, Clarke expects a tough game.
“Franco can walk with his head held high”
“You definitely want to thank Franco Foda,” the Scotland team boss emphasized on the German’s successes in an interview with the APA. “Austria played a very good European Championship tournament in 2021. Franco Foda can walk with his head held high,” said Clarke. “They will be disappointed after losing to Wales, but every time you play for your country So you want to do your best. They would definitely like to win the match,” the team boss said.
The fact that the scenery at Ernst Happel Stadium will be modest doesn’t matter. “The players know what it’s like to play in an empty stadium.” He is sure Scottish fans will be heard.
Clarke will make some changes compared to the home match against Poland, he announced. Liverpool’s Andy Robertson will likely be there after surviving the coronavirus disease. “We have to keep going and keep the pace,” said the Scotland captain. “As a team we click for the first time in a long time. We have the confidence that comes with good results, but we have to keep working hard, big games are yet to come.” But he doesn’t take the OFB team lightly: “Austria had a bad result, but we know how much Well they can be.”
