Thalhammer names Austria's play-off party

Austria coach Dominik Thalhammer said that "everything from now on is a bonus" after unveiling his squad for the UEFA Women's EURO 2013 play-off tie with Russia this month.

Dominik Thalhammer has named a full-strength squad for Austria's UEFA Women's EURO 2013 play-off tie with Russia.

This is uncharted territory for Austria's young but experienced side, and there is a sense they have nothing to lose ahead of Sunday's first leg in St Polten. "The fact that we were even in the draw in Nyon is sensational," said Thalhammer. "Everything from now on is a bonus and Russia will be a difficult side to face." The tie concludes next Thursday.
