Lazaro cut as Austria finalizes its Euro 2016 roster
Austria coach Marcel Koller has dropped Salzburg midfielder Valentino Lazaro from his squad for the European Championship.
Lazaro was the only surprise name in Austria's preliminary 24-man squad as he had not been called up since October 2014. Lazaro got no playing time in Austria's 2-1 win over Malta in Tuesday's warmup game.
Koller's decision leaves Austria Vienna goalkeeper Robert Almer as the only player in the squad from an Austrian club. The squad includes captain Christian Fuchs from Leicester, while Bayern Munich midfielder David Alaba leads a legion of 16 players from Germany's first and second divisions.
Austria is in Group F with Hungary, Portugal and Iceland at Euro 2016.
