Match 7: France v Austria 4-1 

A dominant performance by France as they claimed the first World Cup Qualification slot with a 4-1 win over Austria.

Coach Fred Soyez said “I’m feeling good! Much better now and we played a good game which we won by scoring 3 goals in the final quarter. Austria is always a tough side to beat as defensively they are very good. So to be honest I’m just happy with the result!”
