Austrian defender Gyorgy Garics will return to the national team for next week's friendly against Finland.

Goalkeeper Christian Gratzei, Guido Burgstaller, Jakob Jantscher, Yasin Pehlivan and Jurgen Saeumel are also new to the squad, while 'keeper Pascal Gruenwald and defenders Sebastian Proedl and Franz Schiemer are missing with injuries.
