Euro 2024: Austria edge Netherlands, top Group D

Euro 2024: Austria edge Netherlands, top Group D

Austria defeated the Netherlands 3-2 at Berlin's Olympia stadium to finish as Group D winners, Tuesday evening, with a performance that defied expectations. 

Not many would have predicted an Austrian win let alone topping the section after the draw was held or even after the first round of matches in the group stage. 

The Dutch had already been guaranteed a place in the round of 16, but the bone of contention was what side becomes the group winners and potentially avoids tough opposition.

But after Tuesday's result and the outcome of the France versus Poland game, the 'oranje boys' went through as one of the three best finishers.

Dalen Malen conceded an own goal in the 6th minute of the game but Cody Gakpo restored parity with a curling effort two minutes after the break.

Romano Schmid scored again for the Dutch side in the 59th minute. The goals kept pouring as the Dutch made it 2-2 through Memphis Depay but a late Marcel Sabitzer settled the contest.
