Vienna Brewery Offers 'Free Beer for Life' to First Austrian Goal Scorer
In order to spice things up in futbol, Ottakringer Brauerei AG, a Vienna brewery, is promising a lifelong supply of free beer to any Austria player who scores a goal for the co-hosts in their remaining Euro 2008 group matches against Poland and Germany. Ranked 92nd in the world, Austria is competing in the finals of the tournament for the first time. They had a disappointing start with a 1-0 defeat against Croatia on Sunday and will take on Poland in Vienna on Thursday before completing their Group B fixtures against Germany at the same venue on Monday. The brewery obviously has no confidence in the team's offensive prowess and hopes no goals are actually scored!
