12bET Tips Kazakhstan vs Austria 10/12 12AM GMT+8

 Former Swiss international Marcel Koller has succeeded Dietmar Constantini as coach of the Austrian national team after agreeing a deal to take charge until December 2013.Koller, a seven-time Swiss Super League winner as a player with Grasshopper-Club, and two-time league champion as coach of FC St. Gallen in 2000 and Grasshoppers three years later, replaces Constantini who stepped down on 13 September. The 50-year-old will begin his new role on 1 November, with a view to helping the Alpine nation qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.Koller, meanwhile, has taken encouragement from a young squad that, he believes, has a bright future. "From studying DVDs I can see there are young players with great talent. My view is that it was just small details that prevented Austria qualifying [for UEFA EURO 2012]. They did not take their chances, and in defence individual mistakes cost them."
