In­jured Aus­tria de­fender Proedl to miss Ire­land qual­i­fier

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

The Aus­trian foot­ball fed­er­a­tion says Wat­ford de­fender Se­bas­tian Proedl will miss next week's World Cup qual­i­fier against Ire­land and a friendly against Slo­vakia be­cause of a groin in­jury. The fed­er­a­tion says coach Mar­cel Koller has called up Michael Madl as a re­place­ment for Proedl. The Ful­ham de­fender could earn his first cap for the na­tional team. Aus­tria plays Ire­land at the sold-out Ernst Hap­pel Sta­dium in Vi­enna on Nov. 12, and hosts Slo­vakia at the same venue three days later. After three qual­i­fy­ing matches for the 2018 World Cup, Ire­land and Ser­bia lead Group D with seven points.
