Stickler’s proud moment

Austria were the surprise package at this year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada. As a result, the Austrian FA’s President, Friedrich Stickler, was keen to follow his team’s exploits at first hand.
Before Austria took to the field against Chile in the tournament’s play-off for third place, Stickler proudly posed for photos on the pitch along with FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter, chairman of the Organising Committee for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Jack Warner, Canadian Soccer Association President Colin Linford and Chilean FA President Harold Mayne-Nicholls
