Our forecast for the Euro 2024 game:
Player in focus (David Alaba):
David Alaba began his early career with SV Aspern before transferring to Austria Wien in 2002. In 2009, he was scouted by Bayern Munich and joined their reserve team for the 2009/2010 season. He played 33 games for Bayern Munich II before being promoted to the first team in 2010. At just 17 years old, Alaba made his debut in the Champions League on March 9, 2010 against Fiorentina.
The Austrian player is a defender, but he can also play as a left midfielder. He participated in the 2016 European Championship in France for Austria, but the team did not perform well and was eliminated in the first round. David Alaba has won five Bundesliga titles with Bayern in the 2015/2016 season and also helped the team win the Champions League in 2013.
His personal achievements include being the recipient of the Austrian Footballer of the Year award from 2011 to 2015. Alaba was born on June 24, 1992 in Wien.
Highlighted Team (Estonia):
Estonia, a previous member of the Soviet Union, officially gained its independence on August 20, 1991. It has been actively involved in FIFA and UEFA events since then. Although the Estonian team has not yet reached the finals of a major tournament, they have proven to be challenging opponents for top European teams during the qualifying rounds.
In 2010, Estonia achieved victory against Serbia in Belgrade during the Euro 2012 qualifiers, but they were ultimately unable to qualify for the main tournament. The team, nicknamed “The Blueshirts”, will host their rivals at Le Coq Arena in Tallinn, which has a capacity of 10,500. One of the well-known Estonian football players is Sergei Zenjov, who has previously played for teams such as Blackpool, Karpaty, and Torpedo Moscow.
Ragnar Klavan is a well-known soccer player who competes for both the Estonia national team and Liverpool. The team from Estonia wears blue shirts and black shorts for their home games, but switches to white shirts and white shorts when playing away.
