It would be easier, however, if you had already seen the fire in the friendly matches that led to the European Championship qualification.

Is our team in really good shape? So that you can really tear something in France? Self-criticism resonates in all of the footballer’s statements. One is still looking for rhythm and fine tuning. It is promised that they will be euro-fit in time for the first EM game. And every fan wants to believe in that. It would be easier, however, if you had already seen the fire in the friendly matches that led to the European Championship qualification.

In this case, it is very clear: Better now dull and grandiose in France! The other way around, it would definitely be less fun.

5. Where is the contagious euphoria?

It’s a cycle. Even if you are not really euphoric yourself, the general high spirits can carry you away. And when you’re really on the move, you get others to jump on the train.

At the moment, however, the circle is turning in the other direction. The more people talk negatively about the euro, the worse the general mood becomes. Reports that more and more people want to get rid of their match cards on the black market are fueling the unpleasant mood spiral.

There is only one thing that can help: counteracting! Hope for the best! Make wonderful plans for the euro weeks! Be the one to get the mood going again. We think anything is possible with really positive vibes. And we mean it as we say it: EVERYTHING.

A few days before the opening match of the Uefa Euro 2016 between hosts France and Romania in the Stade de France, the ticket market is getting more and more hectic. The continuing fear of terrorist attacks as well as the nationwide strikes in France have obviously led to more and more fans wanting to get their tickets on the „black market“. Uefa is now using a new online tool to protect fans from buying match tickets for the Euro 2016 from unauthorized and fraudulent dealers.

The catch with ticket trading: Anyone who has purchased such a ticket on Ebay, for example, must expect to be turned away at the stadium entrances. Because the sale, exchange or return of official tickets are only possible via the official Uefa ticket portal. In the past few weeks, thousands of match cards have already been declared invalid because they were offered on the Internet black market by buyers who are registered with UEFA and known by name.

New tool against fraud

The Uefa has recently identified more websites on which such illegal tickets are still offered. This includes both individuals who want to get rid of their unneeded tickets. In some cases, however, there are also fake cards in circulation, the organizers warn against fraudsters. The new security tool should help against this (https://www.brandsays.com/en/download/).

With this simple browser extension, ticket buyers automatically receive a warning when they land on a website that offers unauthorized tickets for Euro 2016.

Tickets for three euros

Whether Uefa’s zero tolerance policy against ticket fraud actually works will be revealed by the respective match day at the latest. In any case, there are still enough tickets in circulation, both on the official Uefa ticket exchange and on the various private online exchange and purchase exchanges. There the ticket prices for “hit games” like Romania against Albania are now falling into the abyss: two tickets for this group game on June 19 in Lyon are allegedly already available for three (!) Euros, plus 15 euros shipping costs.

For the opening match between France and Romania in the 80,000-seat arena in Saint Denis, over 500 tickets in the best category are still on offer on the official Uefa ticket exchange. In contrast, the first two group games of the Austrian national team against Hungary (Tuesday, June 14th, in Bordeaux) and Portugal (Saturday, June 18th, in Paris) are at least officially completely sold out.

It is a business that is also done at many other events. You buy a number of cards of different rankings and sell them to the highest bidder shortly before the start. It has nothing to do with football apart from the name. That’s why there are betting offices if they don’t gamble behind the counter selling black cards.

There is nothing better than a European Championship or World Cup at home, in front of your own HD television. Beer always chilled. Comfortable sofa position with friends. No fear of Sreiks that paralyze traffic, overpriced hotels and restaurants, and no fear of Muslim terrorists. The cardholders could have known earlier.

Yes, there is much more beautiful. E.g. Not watching a soccer game in front of your own HD TV. Do you have to give you examples or do you have your own ideas. Here, too, there is no need to fear strikes, terrorists, etc. Whether you need friends or not is a matter of taste.

The increase to 24 participants for the Euro 2016 starting on Friday (June 10th) was also reflected in the prize money. The European Football Union (Uefa) is paying a total of 301 million euros in premiums for the tournament in France, 105 million more than four years ago, when the European Championship in Poland and the Ukraine was played with 16 teams.

The total prize money has increased more than fivefold over the past 20 years. At the European Championship finals in England in 1996, which was played for the first time with 16 teams (before 8), only around 57 million euros were shared among the participants. At that time, twelve percent were reserved for the European champions (Germany), i.e. 6.83 million euros. This year the entry bonus is higher. The ÖFB and the 23 other EM participants receive a fixed salary of eight million euros.

There are also success bonuses. For every win in the group stage there is an additional million euros, for every draw 500,000 euros. UEFA will transfer EUR 1.5 million to each of the round of 16, and EUR 2.5 million to each of the quarter-finalists. The four teams that reach the semi-finals will each receive EUR 4 million. In the final, the loser receives five million euros, the victory is rewarded with eight million euros. The 2016 European Champion can earn a total of 27 million euros, which is 3.5 million euros more than in 2012.

From Friday there will be the mix of Ramadan and EM-2016 with many unbelieving victims …

Page 1 of 1  

Austria’s national soccer team suffered a defeat at the dress rehearsal for EURO 2016 on Saturday. The ÖFB selection had to admit defeat to the Netherlands 0: 2 (0: 1) in front of 48,000 spectators in the sold-out Vienna Happel Stadium. Vincent Janssen (9th) and Georgino Wijnaldum (66th) scored the goals for the „“ Elftal „“.

Two days off are now waiting for David Alaba and Co. On Tuesday, the official farewell by the government and a final training session in Vienna are on the program, before the journey to the EM quarters in Mallemort on Wednesday. The final round begins for the red-white-red team with the game against Hungary on June 14 in Bordeaux.

Five changes in starting line-up

In the last acid test before the duel with the Magyars, team boss Marcel Koller made five changes in the starting line-up compared to the 2-1 win against Malta on Tuesday in Klagenfurt. Robert Almer, Christian Fuchs, Sebastian Prödl, David Alaba and Marcel Sabitzer came in for Heinz Lindner, Markus Suttner, Martin Hinteregger, Alessandro Schöpf and Martin Harnik, and these changes initially seemed to inspire the hosts.

Janssen completely undisturbed

The ÖFB team put pressure on from the start and became dangerous for the first time in the third minute when Marko Arnautovic forced Dutch goalie Jeroen Zoet to do a brilliant act with a spectacular overhead kick. Six minutes later, however, the „“ Oranjes „“ took the lead out of the blue. A cross from Steven Berghuis was deflected by Fuchs and the central defense and keeper Almer let Janssen head in from close range without being pushed.

Nevertheless, the Austrians remained the leading team even after conceding the goal. After a presentation by Alaba, Zoet parried a shot by Zlatko Junuzovic, and Marc Janko put the ball off the side netting from an acute angle (12th). In the 24th minute, an Alaba shot flew well over the gate, and the last pass failed in a few other promising attacks.

The Dutch rarely appeared on the offensive – but once they got towards the opposing goal, things got tricky. In the 35th minute, for example, a shot from Quincy Promes, deflected by Prödl, landed on the pole.

After changing sides, the number 14 in the world who did not qualify for the European Championship – Austria is tenth – showed himself to be more committed in the game. In the 51st minute Janssen put a volley over the crossbar after a cross from Kenny Tete, nine minutes later Promes missed the goal from a good distance.

Wijnaldum ensures the 2-0 final score

With the exception of one Alaba miss (52nd), the home side had little to offer and conceded the 0-2 in the 66th minute. After a remarkable action over several stations, the recently substituted Luuk de Jong dropped for Wijnaldum, who gave Almer no chance with a deliberate shot into the right corner.

After that, the Austrians achieved little. Only Sabitzer came halfway close to the honor goal in the 71st minute, but failed because of Zoet. In the closing stages, the Dutch no longer had any problems to bring the lead over time and even had the opportunity to make it 3-0 thanks to a header from Marco van Ginkel next to the goal.

For the first time after 23 international matches, no ÖFB hit

This ended the record series of 23 international matches for the ÖFB team, in which at least one goal was always achieved.
