Austria coach Marcel Koller has named 15 Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 players in his final 23-man squad for UEFA EURO 2016, with FC Bayern München's David Alaba set to feature in his first major international tournament.

Alaba, 23, has won the Bundesliga on five occasions, the DFB Cup four times as well as the UEFA Champions League in 2013 with the Bavarian club, and is now expected to spearhead his nation's attempts to progress beyond the group stage of a UEFA European Championship for the first time ever.

Vienna-born Alaba will line up in midfield alongside 1. FSV Mainz 05's Julian Baumgartlinger - set to join Bayer 04 Leverkusen this summer - with SV Werder Bremen's Zlatko Junuzovic and FC Schalke 04's Alessandro Schöpf expected to provide the ammunition going forward.

Julian Baumgartlinger will line up alongside Alaba in midfield.

The Austrians beat Malta 2-1 in a friendly in Klagenfurt on Tuesday night, with former Bremen man Marko Arnautovic and Schöpf on the scoresheet. Alaba scored a late own-goal for Das Team, who face the Netherlands on Sunday in their final friendly before getting Group F underway against Hungary in Bordeaux on 14 June.
