So far in my “Club and Country” updates, there’ s been precious little of the latter. Well time to rectify that and take a brief look at the national side that is, after all, the focus of this save.
As I mentioned in the opening post, Austria’s ranking starts somewhat higher than my previous attempts. Thanks largely to qualifying for Euro 2016, Austria kicks off FM19 as the 26th best national team in the world. This would intuitively seem like a positive, reflecting an improved standard of player immediately available to me; but it does come with downsides – not least increased expectation.
