Austria upsets France 3-1 in World Cup qualifier

BY foxsports • September 7, 2008

Two first-half goals from free kicks and a penalty after the break gave Austria a 3-1 win over France in a World Cup qualifying match on Saturday.

Austria played aggressively to earn its first win in 38 years against World Cup finalist France, which wasn't able to take advantage of its technical strengths in front of 48,000 people at a sold-out Ernst Happel Stadium.
