AUSTRIA PROVING THE ONES TO WATCH AT EURO 2024

Austria produced a hugely impressive performance that will make others take notice at Euro 2024 as they beat the Netherland to progress to the last 16 as group D winners.

Despite being handed a tough draw with the Dutch and France, Ralf Rangnick’s side won two of their three games to go to finish top of the standings.

The Netherlands had already guaranteed their progresssion to the last 16 but they will go through as the best third-placed sides, with France second.

This was a fully deserved win for Austria as they played with spirit and desire throughout, and showed great determination to respond to a fast start to the second-half by the Netherlands as Marcel Sabitzer’s strike secured the Victory.

The Austria had been gifted a sixth-minute lead when Donyell Malen turned home Alexander Prass’s dangerous cross.

Memphis Depay thought he had earned the Duch a draw when his close-range volley survived a check for handball by the video assistant referee, but Sabitzer had the final say when he broke through and drove into the roof of the net to send the Austrian fans wild
