Austria's relentless and energetic approach led them to the last-16 of the European Championship on Tuesday, securing a dramatic 3-2 win over the Netherlands and topping Group D. The Dutch, despite an early own goal and a lackluster first half, also advanced as one of the best third-placed teams. Marcel Sabitzer's late goal was crucial for Austria, who finished with six points, ahead of France on five and the Netherlands on four. Austria took an early lead when Donyell Malen inadvertently scored an own goal, but Cody Gakpo quickly equalized. Romano Schmid and Memphis Depay then exchanged goals before Sabitzer sealed the win for Austria. They will face the Group F runners-up, while France and the Netherlands await their last-16 opponents. Malen's error came on his tournament debut, attempting to intercept a cross but instead sending it past his own keeper. Despite several chances, the Dutch struggled against Austria's aggressive tactics, leading to tactical changes by coach Ronald Koeman. The second half saw more intense action, with Gakpo and Schmid scoring, followed by Depay's equalizer, which was initially disallowed but later confirmed by VAR. Sabitzer's decisive goal ensured Austria's surprising group victory.
