Austria's national soccer team suffered their fourth World Cup qualification defeat on Tuesday, losing 1-0 to humorless Danes.
Franco Foda's team again offered an offensive harmless performance. A look at the statistics also proves this. Red-White-Red did not record a single shot on goal. You can't win a game like that.

Not suitable for a team: Harsh criticism from ORF experts
“Hectic, no ideas, just far too few”
The Danish media saw it similarly, who took the visiting team to court after the eighth success of the European Championship semi-finalist in the eighth qualifying game. “Denmark is at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. That is now a fact. However, the football festival in Parken was not a glamorous performance,” analyzed “BT”.
And it was mainly the Austrians who were to blame for that. “The game was too slow and had too little creative traits. The Austrians were well on the defensive and didn't seem particularly interested in winning the game.”
“'If you don't jump, you love Austria', the fans sang in the park. They demanded '4: 0, 4: 0, 4: 0' but didn't get a big win,” wrote the “Ekstra Bladet”.
The “Jyllands Posten” also referred to the clear 4-0 success in Vienna in a duel with the nominally toughest group opponent. “In the parking lot they called for a 4-0 win, but it wasn't enough that Denmark struggled to the World Cup. The number of Austrian fans was so small that they could easily have been pushed into a medium-sized ski lift in Wagrain,” he scoffed Sheet.
