BORDEAUX, France, Sporting Alert Euro 2016 enters the final stage of the first round of group play on Tuesday with Austria and Hungary matching up in Group F at Nouveau Stade Bordeaux on day 5.
GOAL: AUSTRIA 0-2 HUNGARY (Stieber, 87)
Great counter-attack by Hungary, and with Austria down a player, a ball broke wide for Stieber, who calmly chips over Austria goalkeeper Robert Almer to give Hungary a 2-0 lead in the 87th min and surely three points from here.
GOAL: AUSTRIA 0-1 HUNGARY (Szalai, 87)
Adam Szalai scores to give the underdogs Hungary a 1-0 lead in the 62nd min against Austria. A nice one-two pass between Adam Szalai and Laszlo Kleinheisler resulted in the former sliding home past the goalkeeper to make it 1-0.
RED CARD: Aleksandar Dragovic has been sent off for Austria for a second yellow card in the 66th minute.
Highlighting the list of players set to be on show in this game is Bayern Munich versatile defender David Alaba, who will start in the midfield for Austria in this game.
Alaba is expected to push forward in support of Marc Janko, who will lead the attack today, while the Bayern star player will be in charge of taking the free-kicks in and around the 18-yard box.
Also starting against Hungary is Stoke City attacking winger Marko Arnautovic, who has been labelled as the key player today for Austria.
Christian Fuchs, who won the English Premier League title with Leicester City Aleksandar Dragovic, Martin Harnik and Julian Baumgartlinger all start as well.
Austria, behind five goals from Janko, won Group G after an unbeaten campaign and they would love to carry over those qualifying form into Euro 2016.
“We have a very good team, most of our players are playing in the German Bundesliga and even four or five now play in the Premier League,” said Austria defender Kevin Wimmer, who will start on the bench.
“With the national side, though, in the last few years the development of the Austrian football team has been incredible.”
Meanwhile, Gabor Kiraly will set a European Championship tournament record when he starts in goal for Hungary.
Kiraly, who enters this championship at 40 years and 75 days, will become the oldest player to play in the tournament.
He will overtake former German international Lothar Matthaus, who was 39 years and 91 days when he played against Portugal at Euro 2000.
Krisztian Nemeth was a slight doubt for the game, but the centre-forward is fit enough to start, after shaking off a muscle injury.
This fixture between these two nation was first staged in 1902.
