Austria through to the last 16 after beating Ukraine 1 – 0

Must Read

Austria through to the last 16 after beating Ukraine 1 – 0. Franco Foda’s side produced a courageous display in Bucharest and Christoph Baumgartner‘s close-range finish proved enough to earn a Wembley meeting with the Italians on Saturday.

Austria reached the knockout stages of the European Championship for the first time as a deserved win over Ukraine secured a last-16 tie against Italy.

Ukraine – third in Group C – must wait to see if their tally of three points proves enough to reach the knockout stages and in truth their timid display here could have been punished more heavily by Austria.

Marko Arnautovic pushed a shot wide with the goal at his mercy moments before half-time as Austria served up 13 shots on goal before the break, a tally bettered only by Italy’s 14 against Turkey on the opening night of the tournament.

Ukraine in contrast struggled to find any fluidity in their play, with their only threatening effort arriving when Mykola Shaparenko forced a routine diving save from Austrian keeper Daniel Bachmann in the first half.
