Austria vs. England: Das Ergebnis - 0:1

Peter Crouch's headed goal was enough to give England victory over Austria but their win was marred by the injury to striker Michael Owen.
Owen limped off in the first half with a thigh strain and is now likely to miss next Wednesday's crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia.
Crouch grabbed his goal on the stroke of half-time when he headed in David Beckham's corner from the left.
Crouch also missed with a header in the second half from eight yards.
Euro 2008 co-hosts Austria offered little in the game. Lone striker Sanel Kuljic, substituted in the second half, was provided with inadequate service despite his best attempts to make a nuisance of himself.
Their highlight came courtesy of Andreas Ivanschitz, whose low cross after a sprightly burst down the left was hooked away to safety before reaching the feet of Kuljic.
There was a major incident in the first half that involved Austria goalkeeper Jurgen Macho. The former Sunderland player came off the worse in collision with Crouch and needed urgent attention inside the area after appearing to swallow his tongue. Macho recovered but was still dazed and was consequently stretchered off to be replaced by Alex Manninger.
