Austria put Grasshoppers Zurich to the test match. The squad continues to grow. "Three new players are still to come," promises sporting director Mirco Papaleo.

Lustenau's Austria played a closed-door test match against Swiss Super League club Grasshoppers Zurich on Wednesday afternoon. The police had classified the game as a high-security match due to the Zurich club's fan friendship with SCR Altach. For this reason, the Swiss preferred to do without the crowd altogether.

From Austria's point of view, the performance on the pitch was also impressive. Although the 2:1 defeat was the first defeat in the fourth test match, the Brenner eleven were able to fully challenge the first division club. Lustenau played courageously, as demanded by the coach, and only had to concede a 2-1 defeat thanks to a penalty in the final minute. Mikic (60') had equalized the score at 1:1 in the meantime. The Brazilian Santana was also involved in the match.

Amateur becomes young professional
The 19-year-old full-back Leo Schachner, who comes from the club's own youth ranks, was signed permanently. Schachner took part in preparations with the professionals and impressed. His reward was a young professional contract. "Leo has continued to develop," says sporting director Mirco Papaleo. Three more players for the attacking area will follow. One of them comes from cooperative club Clermont Foot. D. Hofer
