Topless warmup to Euro 2008 by Women's Soccer teams

Austria drew first blood in the first of this week's big football clashes against Germany, winning a one-off Women's Topless football match between the two countries.

"Erotic actresses" from Austria and Germany took part in the five-a-side topless beach soccer match in downtown Vienna, in a warmup to their crucial Euro 2008 clash.

The match was organised by an internet chat room company, and attracted a large (mainly male) crowd, keen for a "morale booster" between the crunch match between Austria and Germany.

Football fans described the match as a "very nice version of the beautiful game", but agreed the girls might need to work on their technique.

Germany's goalkeeper Jana Bach admitted football wasn't her strongest talent. "I was supposed to hold the balls but I really have no idea how to do that... Maybe it is because I am not all that much into soccer. I am more into shoes to be honest."
The traditional post-game swapping of team shirts had to be skipped, but players did join their new fans for "alcopops and dancing at a beach club alongside the Danube."

Oh, and the scoreline? The Austrian Topless Women's Soccer team beat the German Topless Women's Soccer team 10 goals to 5.

* Stuff: Austrian women streak to victory in topless match

* UPDATE: In the "real" Euro 2008 football clash that followed, three-time champions Germany beat co-hosts Austria 1-0 in Vienna, to ensure a place in the quarter-finals.
