Leeds United’s Max Wober named in most recent Austria squad

Leeds United defender Max Wober has become the latest Whites player to be called up for his home country ahead of a series of international fixtures later this month.

Unlike Rodrigo and Wilfried Gnonto, who may line-up against one another when their respective countries – Spain and Italy – face each other in the Nations League on 15th June, Wober is set to feature in Austria’s 2024 European Championship qualifiers instead.

In this regard, the Austrian finds himself in a similar situation to fellow Leeds defender Rasmus Kristensen, who also received a call up for his national side Denmark yesterday.

Wober has featured 14 times for his country in his career, and will be hoping that his impressive performances since joining Leeds from Red Bull Salzburg in January will be transferred to the international stage.

The 25-year-old often proved a calm, composed presence at the back for the Whites – and quickly endeared himself to the Elland Road faithful through showing his love for a strong tackle.

Ralf Rangnick’s Austria side will seek to build on the perfect start to their qualifying campaign after back-to-back wins against Azerbaijan and Estonia.

Their qualification push continues on 17th June when they face Belgium, followed by a clash with Sweden on 20th June.

Austria squad in full:

Junior Adamu (RB Salzburg), David Alaba (Real Madrid), Marko Arnautovic (Bologna), Daniel Bechmann (Watford), Christoph Baumgartner (1899 Hoffenheim), Flavius Daniliuc (Salernitana), Kevin Danso (RC Lens), Michael Gregoritsch (SC Freiburg), Florian Grillitsch (Ajax), Niklas Hedl (Rapid Wien), Florian Kainz (1.
