Ukraine vs Austria – LIVE!

Austria are celebrating progressing through to the knockout stages of a major international tournament for the first time in 39 years.

Christoph Baumgartner’s first-half goal was enough to secure a 1-0 victory over Ukraine in a crucial Euro 2020 Group C shootout in Bucharest on Monday evening, though there was also a head injury controversy involving the goalscorer.

The result means that Austria go through to the last 16 as runners-up behind the Netherlands, who were already assured of top spot before beating North Macedonia 3-0 in Amsterdam.

Franco Foda’s side now face a tough meeting with Group A winners Italy at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday night for a place in the quarter-finals.

For Ukraine, it’s an anxious wait to see if their three-point total is enough to claim one of the four best third-place finisher slots in this expanded Euros format.

However, a negative goal difference is likely to work against Andriy Shevchenko’s men after a desperately frustrating night in the Romanian capital.
