Marcel Koller, Austria coach


We were very focused and the early goal really opened the game. Big compliments to my team. I'm happy with the result. Liechtenstein attacked very well but we stopped their counterattacks. We never underestimated our opponent and we kept focus. Winning against a small country reinforced our attitude to become a great team. I'm proud of the players tonight.

Austria are looking to establish their lead at the top of Group G as they make the short trip to Liechtenstein on Saturday. While the national media is expecting a comfortable win, winger Martin Harnik warned: "Liechtenstein's latest results are proof that they're capable of good performances. We're preparing for this tie as meticulously as we would for any other opponent. However, we're also directing the majority of attention to our style of play, which we hope to successfully apply on Saturday."

Meanwhile David Alaba, who is used to facing defensive minded opponents with FC Bayern München, explains why Austria might face a test of patience. "Liechtenstein recently showed that they're well organized and compact. It won't be easy to score against them."
