General 1 comment »

The countdown clock at the forecourt of Salzburg main station appears already like a relic from old days. The clock and some scattered flags remind of the huste and bustle in Salzburg during the UEFA EURO 2008 in Austria and Switzerland. Now the carriages are back at Residence Place where fans have been engrossed in the match in front of the video walls and the city of Salzburg prepares for the next cultural highlight of the year - the Salzburg Festival 2008.

Anyway for now the Host City Salzburg UEFA EURO 2008 Weblog will stay online and we are glad about every visitor who wants to wallow in memories. Apropos space for your memories is in our “UEFA EURO 2008 in Salzburg” group. We are happy about every photo from your experience in Salzburg!

If you have become to a Salzburg fan during UEFA EURO 2008 then please confess yourself on our Salzburg Fanpage in Facebook. Some friends are already there.

Well, bye then - Servus from Salzburg!

Spain celebrates deservedly its first title since 1964. The Spanish team dominated the final match of UEFA EURO 2008 and sent the Germans home at a result of 0:1. Torres could bring out the decision with his stroke in the 33rd minute of the game.

The Spanish won deservedly against the Russians and roll into final. The Spanish convinced with a sovereign performance from their defensive unit through to the strikers.

Josef Hickersberger has announced his resignation as national coach of the Austrian team.

The Austrian Football Association now has to appoint a new coach as fast as possible because the first qualification match for the FIFA World Cup 2010 already takes place September 6, 2008.

The Austrian broadcasting (ORF) would have suggested the following candidates:

  • Ivica Osim
  • Andreas Herzog
  • Kurt Jara
  • Volker Finke
  • Matthias Sammer
  • Walter Schachner
  • Zlatko Kranjcar

Hopefully those responsible will take the right decision…
