Austria vs Ukraine Match Report
The only goal of the game. In the process, at the age of 21, he became the youngest scorer in this European Championship.
Although he could only hold on for another 11 minutes. And then succumbed to a head injury a few minutes before being replaced, he received applause from his teammates and supporters for taking them to 6 points at the end of the game. Their collective reward was a 16-round match against Italy at Wembley on Saturday.
Ukraine must now wait until the end of the remaining group stage to see if they have improved. With a triple and a negative goal difference, unless the result is very certain, it is unlikely. By comparison, Switzerland’s only confirmed full-time third place in Group A has four spots here.
They will regret not maintaining their 22-point score against the Netherlands after falling behind by 20 points. But most of the time, they will regret not showing up in Bucharest. Without the math in their favor before kick-off.
Neither the victory nor the defeat of the two teams can better position this game, because neither team can afford to lose. Or worse, admitting four points is enough to get one of four third places in six groups to advance to the knockout stage. What follows is the real threat of a win-win stalemate.
The president of the Austrian Football Association, Leo Windtner (Leo Windtner), had to publicly object. In 1982, they lost to West Germany 10-10 in the World Cup, leading Algeria to advance to second place in the group. But after winning the first European Championship victory in the 31st match against North Macedonia in the first match of the group stage, it is clear that he does not want this disgusting history to repeat itself and tarnish this moment.
Ukraine’s unique advantage in goal difference will put them in second place in any tie. But in fact, even if they lock in their opponents late in the game, a draw seems unlikely.
