Austria coach praises Scotland

Hickersberger hopes his youthful squad will be ready for Euro 2008

Josef Hickersberger said Scotland merited their 1-0 friendly victory in Vienna thanks to a Garry O'Connor goal.

"I would like to congratulate Alex McLeish and the Scotland national team on their win," said the Austria coach.

"They were more mature, they had better play than we had and after they scored they kept the play under control."

The Austrians - who will co-host Euro 2008 with Switzerland - went closest to scoring at the end when Markus Katzer's header came off the crossbar.
