Netherlands v Austria LIVE: Latest reaction, analysis and Euro 2024 result (1)

Euro 2024 Group D reached its conclusion on Tuesday evening as Austria powered past the Netherlands in an enthralling encounter in Berlin.

Ralf Rangnick’s side grabbed an early lead after Donyell Malen turned a cross into his own net, and they dominated much of the first 45 as the Netherlands wasted a couple of chances to equalise.

The second half began in the opposite manner, with Cody Gakpo curling an equaliser past Pentz within five minutes of the restart. The Dutch began to impose themselves on the match, but they were behind again before they knew it as Romano Schmid guided a header past Verbruggen.

With both teams pressing to gain an advantage, the Netherlands were briefly back into it after Depay poked an effort past Pentz, but their parity was once more short-lived. Baumgartner threaded in a pass to Sabitzer, who broke through and rifled an effort into the roof of the Dutch net.

The Netherlands pushed for an equaliser as full-time loomed but Austria held firm to take three points in the German capital, and with them first place in Group D.

Nobody told Austria this was the group of death - they’ve reshaped the map of Euro 2024

If this was supposed to be the group of death, no one toldAustria.Ralf Rangnick’s endearing underdogs have reshaped the draw, and perhaps the destiny, ofEuro 2024by topping it. They beatNetherlands. More than that, though, they blitzed them; fearless and ferocious, Austria recovered from conceding two equalisers to condemn the Dutch to defeat courtesy ofMarcel Sabitzer’s terrific finish.

They head to Leipzig as group winners. Netherlands, their qualification already assured, nonetheless stumbled from first to third on an eventful afternoon. It is Gelsenkirchen for them.

If Rangnick’s men still needed France to slip up to leapfrog them, and they did, theirs is a historic feat. Not since the 1978 World Cup, when Hans Krankl’s goals ensured they finished above Brazil, have Austria won a group in tournament football.

Now players such as the superb Sabitzer and the unheralded Romano Schmid have a similar feat to their name. Rangnick has another triumph for his blueprint: all-action football has been allied with the ability to respond to setbacks.

Euro 2024 group permutations and third-place standings explained

Linked below are the further permutations for the other groups, including Group C, which finishes tonight.

Gareth Southgate’s side are through to the last-16 with a game to spare, as four points now confirms that England will finish as one of the four best third-placed teams even if they lose to Slovenia. England will top the group if they beat Slovenia. If England draw, Denmark would have the chance to leapfrog them on goal difference if they beat Serbia. Slovenia and Denmark can both finish above England but Serbia cannot due to the head-to-head.

FULL-TIME! Netherlands 2-3 Austria

A whirlwind evening ends with a crazy finish to Group D. Pre-tournnament favourites France go through in second after three unconvincing performances, with Austria earning their billing as pre-tournament ‘dark horses’ with a first-place finish.

The Netherlands creep through in third after three of their own unconvincing performances, and they could be facing England in the next round...

Austria clear and Sabitzer collects near halfway, but he can’t avoid ceding possession. Austria win it back though, and Sabitzer and Baumgartner are in the corner...

We’re almost past the allotted amount of added time, though there’ll be some extra no doubt. Virgil van Dijk launches a long ball forward to Weghorst, but he doesn’t have the pace to get on the end of it.
