Austria have named their squad to face England at Gillingham FC on 20 April.
Austria have named their squad to face England in the World Cup qualifier against England at Gillingham FC on 20 April, with their two goalkeepers having just one cap between them.
In their last qualifier, Austria lost 3-1 to France in November in front of 450 spectators, but they shocked the Group 5 favourites by taking the lead through Nina Aigner, just as they went a goal up against England back in September last year.
France came back to win 3-1 with goals from Marinette Pichon, Sandrine Soubeyrand Sabrine Viquier, but they won't be underestimated by Hope Powell's side.
With one victory (Hungary) and three defeats (England, the Netherlands, France) the team went into the winter break with just three points.
Having been promoted into the top five European groups for qualification to the 2007 Women's World Cup for the first time though, the initial pre-qualifying hopes of the Austria Football Association were clear: to avoid relegation that would prevent the side from competing in the 2009 UEFA European Championship qualifiers.
Austrian Head Coach Ernst Weber said following the France defeat: "I am very pleased despite the defeat, of the achievement of my young players. We competed up to the very last minute.
"There was a difference in the technique of both teams which does not surprise me, but I have no fears for for the future of domestic women's football, because we have some young players with real potential in the squad."
Weber took over the managerial reins of the National Women's side in 1996. He combined the role with being the Austrian men's U21 Head Coach between 1996 and 1999, and now is the U18's Men's Coach as well as the Women's senior and U19 Coach.
