Coach’s Breakdown: A Preview of France v. Austria

[tps_title]OFFENSIVE & DEFENSIVE LINE[/tps_title]

Football WM 2011, 13.07.2011, UPC Arena, Graz, Österreich vs. FrankreichEven if Austria is without their top two OL (Gruber and Milanovich), I still think they have the edge upfront. The Austrian offensive line has just more experience in the big European games.

Edge : Austria (more experience)

I was very impressed with the French defensive line against Denmark but the horrible injury of their star defensive end Nanguy is a big loss for Team France. The Austrian defensive line doesn’t have a lot of size but lot of experience with three Vienna Vikings leading the way. Watch out for veterans #56 Taheri and #94 Grünsteidl.
