Austria’s Euro 2008 motivation methods revealed…

From ESPNsoccernet:

VIENNA, June 10 (Reuters) – A Vienna brewery is promising a lifelong supply of free beer to any Austria player who scores a goal for the co-hosts in their remaining Euro 2008 group matches against Poland and Germany.

Austria, competing in the finals of the tournament for the first time, made a disappointing start with a 1-0 defeat against Croatia on Sunday. ‘Maybe this is the kind of motivation that will give them the last kick our team needs to be successful,’ Ottakringer Brauerei AG chief executive Sigi Menz said in a statement, adding he would personally deliver the brewers’s supply for the first year. Austria, ranked 92nd in the world, take on Poland in Vienna on Thursday before completing their Group B fixtures against Germany at the same venue on Monday.

No wonder Ivica Vastic looked so happy when he scored Austria’s equaliser last night…
