Aufhauser scores three to give Austria 4-1 win over Trinidad and Tobago
The Associated Press


Rene Aufhauser scored three first-half goals Wednesday to give Austria a 4-1 win over Trinidad and Tobago in an international friendly.

Aufhauser first converted a cross from striker Roland Linz in the 14th minute, but Trinidad equalized in the 23rd when Collin Samuel took advantage of an error by goalkeeper Alexander Manninger.

Two minutes later, Aufhauser put Austria back in front when his cross confused Trinidad goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams and went in the net.

Aufhauser made it 3-1 in the 44th with a header off a corner kick from captain Andreas Ivanschitz.

"We played very well today and it is not that important who scores," Aufhauser said. "My second goal was a lucky one anyway."

In the second half, Carlos Edwards hit the crossbar for Trinidad with a shot from 30 meter (yards).

Austria substitute Ferdinand Feldhofer scored his team's fourth goal in the 81st off a rebound after a save by Williams, and Muhammet Akagunduz saw his goal denied for offsides a few minutes later.

"We started well, but I am not happy at all with our second-half performance," Austria coach Josef Hickersberger said.

Trinidad coach Wim Rijsbergen missed several key players, including Sunderland striker Dwight Yorke. The Soca Warriors played at their first World Cup earlier this year in Germany, holding Sweden to a draw but losing to England and Paraguay without scoring a goal in the first round.

Austria is co-hosting the 2008 European Championship with Switzerland and qualifies for that tournament automatically.
Lineups:

Austria: Alexander Manninger, Johannes Erntl (Joachim Standfest, 59), Martin Stranzl, Martin Hiden (Ferdinand Feldhofer, 46), Christian Fuchs, Andreas Ivanschitz, Rene Aufhauser, Yuksel Sariyar (Zlatko Junozovic, 59), Christoph Leitgeb (Gyorgy Garics, 46), Roland Linz (Muhammet Akagunduz, 71), Sanel Kuljic (Klaus Salmutter, 71).

Trinidad and Tobago: Jan-Michael Williams, Cyd Gray (Andrei Pacheco, 84), Nigel Daniel, Dennis Lawrence, Atiba Charles, Carlos Edwards, Chris Birchall, Aurtis Whitley (Kerry Baptiste, 78), Collin Samuel (Andre Toussaint, 80), Scott Sealy (Densill Theobald, 46), Jason Scotland.

Heard up to the 1st half. We didn't seem to be playing badly when in possession. It's our defensive work that is still the problem... unless them fellas learn to keep the ball for the full 90 minutes.  :)

And that is exactly what Beenie was preaching - possession, possession, possession.  Don't forget we were without Sancho and Avery.  Defenders always have to learn to play together.  I have patience!!
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!
