Andi Weimann was on the scoresheet for Austria in their 2-0 friendly win against Slovakia in Bratislava on Saturday evening.

The forward, who came on after 70 minutes at Tehelné pole, fired into the roof of the net from inside the penalty area 11 minutes later.

Austria had taken an incredible lead after just seven seconds in the Slovakian capital, with Christoph Baumgartner running forward straight from kick-off and powering the ball into the bottom corner.

Weimann will hope to hit the target once again on Tuesday night when his nation host Turkiye in Vienna. 

Elsewhere, winger Mikey Johnston also came on in the second half as the Republic of Ireland earned a 0-0 draw at home to Belgium at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Johnston replaced Sammie Szmodics with 20 minutes remaining of the friendly encounter. 

The on-loan Celtic man will have his sights set on starting for the Boys In Green when they host Switzerland on Tuesday night at the same venue.
