Karel Bruckner, the coach of Austria’s national football squad, has been hailed a hero in Austria after the team defeated France on Saturday in their opening World Cup qualifier. Austria stunned the French 3:1 on goals from Janko, Aufhauser, and Ivanschitz on the night. Karel Bruckner, who in the past successfully coached the Czechs to a number of tournaments, made clear he was keeping his feet firmly on the ground. While admitting he was pleased, he told journalists it was “still only three points”, making clear the team needed a good deal more to qualify.
