Bayern Munich left back David Alaba has been included to Austria's final squad for Euro 2016. The 23-year-old heads into this summer's European championship as Austria's most important player, while this season he has shown that he’s capable of playing as a center back. Alaba is a pivotal player for Koller, mostly in midfield. He is the engine that Austria needs to be successful in this year’s Euros.

Austria has one final tune-up match on Saturday against the Netherlands before leaving for France for the Euros.

Austria are in Group F where they will play Hungary on June 14 at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux in Bordeaux, Portugal on June 18 at Parc des Princes in Paris, and Iceland on June 22 at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon.

The UEFA EURO 2016 will take place in France from June 10 – July 10.
