Bruckner overlooks Janko for Austria squad

Austria coach Karel Bruckner has named his first squad since taking over from Josef Hickersberger last month.

The Euro 2008 co-hosts take on Italy in an international friendly in Nice on August 20.

Former Czech Republic boss Bruckner has left out Salzburg's Marc Janko, the top-scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga so far this season with five goals in seven games.

Janko was also omitted from the Austria squad for the European Championship.

Two more players who missed out on the summer showpiece, Rapid Vienna forward Stefan Maierhofer and Hoffenheim defender Andreas Ibertsberger, have though been included in the 19-man party.

Austria crashed out of Euro 2008 at the group stage after failing to win a match.

Austria squad:

Alexander Manninger (Juventus), Ramazan Ozcan (Hoffenheim); Gyorgy Garics (Atalanta Bergamo), Ronald Gercaliu (Salzburg), Andreas Ibertsberger (Hoffenheim), Emanuel Pogatetz (Middlesbrough), Sebastian Prodl (Werder Bremen), Martin Stranzl (Spartak Moscow); Rene Aufhauser (Salzburg), Christian Fuchs (Bochum), Martin Harnik (Werder Bremen), Andreas Ivanschitz (Panathinaikos), Christoph Leitgeb (Salzburg), Jurgen Saumel (Torino), Joachim Standfest (Austria Vienna); Erwin Hoffer, Stefan Maierhofer (both Rapid Vienna), Roman Kienast (Helsingborg), Roland Linz (Braga).
