Bayern Munich left back David Alaba has received the call-up to play for Austria in its European qualifiers against Poland and Israel. Alaba, who is a staple for the Austrian squad, headlines what looks to be a very solid cast of players, whose goal will be to ultimately qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Even with a very Bundesliga-centric squad that has some quality talent and depth, Austria will face a long road ahead of it as it pertains to qualifying for the World Cup. Austria will host Poland on Thursday March 21st at Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Vienna and will then travel to Haifa for a match at Sammy Ofer Stadium on March 24th.

Alaba will certainly play a key and vital role for the Austrians as he is the team’s most recognizable and highly-regarded player.
