Russia look good in Anger

Austria 1-5 Russia Russia moved to the top of UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ qualifying Group 6 with an emphatic comeback win in Anger.

Russia moved to the top of UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ qualifying Group 6 with an emphatic comeback win in Austria.

Shock opener
A crowd of 1,500 saw Ernst Weber's side take a shock lead after six minutes as Viktoria Schnaderbeck crossed for Irene Fuhrmann to thunder an unstoppable volley past Russia goalkeeper Elvira Todua. However, they could not carry their lead until the interval as Olesya Kurochkina managed to find the target for the visitors after 36 minutes.

Russia revived
Russia showed their class in the second half with Natalia Mokashanova and substitute Natalia Barbashina both scoring twice to send Yuri Bystritsky's side back to the top of the section on head-to-head record above Poland, with their vital trip to Norway on 27 October next on their agenda. Weber, whose side face Israel in their next qualifier on Sunday with both teams on one point, said: "We did well against the group's favourite for an hour and then our physical strength failed. Russia are the strongest side in the group and are unbeatable for us, but against Israel we have to get three points."
