Juergen Macho came back, but Austria couldn’t defeat Nigeria

This night Austria and Nigeria drew 1-1 in Graz. Austrian goal were made by Roman Kienast in the 12th minute, but the Almeria player Kalu Uche drew seven minutes later.

It was the first match of Juergen Macho with Austria National Team after an injury suffered last November. Austria will play against Malta next Friday wanting, at least, Austria played last five matches without victories. The last joy was against Cote d’Ivore on October. This isn’t the best way to arrive to the EURO 2008 as a host country.
