Inter defender Valentino Lazaro has shared his eagerness to do well in the Austrian national team’s upcoming EURO 2020 qualifiers with Israel and Slovenia this week.
“These matches are like two finals for us. We really have a chance to beat our direct rivals for qualification, so we will give everything we have got,” he stressed in an interview with LaOlaTV.
“We are starting in a good position, we have the qualities to win this home game against Israel. I want to give everything on the field, even if I then have to go back to Inter exhausted. Qualifying would be very important for our country.”
Austria are currently sat in third place in Group G and know that, dependent on other results, they could find themselves topping the group if they are to win both of their games, heading into the final two games that will be played in November.
