Romano Schmid contributed an assist for Austria U21s as they won 2-1 in a friendly match over the weekend. The 21-year-old midfielder could feature again on Tuesday (08.06.2021, 19:10 CEST) as they get started with qualification for the next U21 European Championship. Werder defender Marco Friedl did not appear for the senior Austria team in their EURO 2020 warm-up match.
Werder shot-stopper Jiri Pavlenka had to endure a chastening 4-0 defeat to Italy. Our goalkeeper played the full 90 minutes for his country. The Czech republic will try to pick themselves up on Tuesday evening (08.06.2021, 20.15 CEST) as they play their final friendly before the Euros. The opponents this time around will be Albania.
Sweden had to face Armenia without Werder left-back Ludwig Augustinsson. The 27-year-old remains sidelined with a muscle issue, although his participation in the Euros is not currently under threat. Sweden were able to prevail 3-1 in his absence.
Yuya Osako could make an appearance in World Cup qualifying on Monday (07.06.2021). Japan take on Tajikistan at 12:30 CEST with Osako starting the game among the substitutes.
