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


This group is very impressive for Team Austria. Lot of talent, lot of speed. Watch out for blitzes from the outside from #49 Blach and #41 Illetschko to stop the run inside.

Just like for the defensive line, I don’t know the French linebackers very well. #32 Berton is a beast. #5 Zuppardi and #52 Noir are veterans. Good overall group but they will have their hands full to stop the Austrian running game.

Edge : Austria (just more talent)
