Austria defeat Germany first time in 32 years

Austria defeat Germany first time in 32 years

But Lagerback, who led Iceland to the finals of the 2016 European Championship in France, had the last laugh as King scored a simple tap-in before setting up Soerloth for the victor five minutes from time.

Meanwhile Manuel Neuer made his first start since September 2017 after recovering from a broken foot. "I am not upset about the loss, not upset about losing the game, I am upset about the way we lost it".

Germany started brightly and took the lead after kist 11 minutes, with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil capitalising on a poor clearance from goalkeeper Jörg Siebenhandl and producing a fine finish.

The Manchester City man will require a scan to determine if he can play in the World Cup, and Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said it would probably take 48 hours to determine the severity of the injury.

Austria grew into the game, while Germany became more sloppy as the action went on, and although Joachim Low's charges went ahead at the break, they were pegged back on 53 minutes.

Low's team toiled to create anything of note in reply to Austria's two second-half goals and while the starting XI against Mexico will look a lot different to the team on Saturday, Germany's inability to pose much of an attacking threat will be a worry to Low.

Both Neuer and Ter Stegen are set to fly to Russian Federation.

Loew rested key players Toni Kroos, Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Mueller, who all didn't travel with the team to Austria from its training base in South Tyrol, Italy.

Despite missing 259 days with a fractured foot, Neuer looked sharp but Loew says he will see how his goalkeeper's problematic left foot reacts on Sunday.

"We gave the opponent a lot of space and helped them with our mistakes".

It ensured Austria their first win over Germany in 32 years and maintained Franco Foda's 100% record since becoming their coach last November, BBC reports.

"It's always great to win, especially against Germany".

Austria's match-winner still sees Germany as among the favourites to defend their world title in Russian Federation.

Germany complete their preparations for the tournament with a friendly against Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen on June 8.

Four names must be cut before the final 23-man World Cup team is submitted to Federation Internationale de Football Association on Monday and Loew said decisions will only be made "late on Sunday night".

"We didn't find our game".
