Austria miss the miracle against Italy
Austria offers a big fight to the big favorites in the round of 16 of the European Championship and can decide the match in the second half. But first, the video guide hit and then Italy in the sprawl.
DrThe sensation was within one’s reach, but it did not. Austria forced Italy into extra time in the round of 16 of the European Championship in London with a 0-0 victory. It got really exciting there. The top candidate won 2-1 in the end.
Ordinary time saw two different halves. In the first half of the match, it was clear that Italy was the better team, but wasted two big chances to take the lead. After the change, the struggling Austrians felt their chance, freed themselves more and more and came in turn against the top candidates and also for a header by Arnautovic (65). However, this was invalidated after the video evidence due to the thin stealth mode. In the end, it was Italy, not Austria, that saved itself in overtime.
There, however, the southern Europeans struck quickly. In the 95th minute, Spinazzola crossed the ball to the right side of the penalty area, which was shot by the Austrians criminally. The substitute in the 84th minute, Chiesa headed the ball and then sank it with his left comb into the long corner of the goal – 1-0 for Italy, which was set to follow 2-0 before the change. A substitute also scored that goal. It was Pessina who used Acerbir’s preliminary work to make a decision.
Even after such a deficit, the Austrians did not give up, but they missed two more big chances before Kalajic even managed to catch a corner kick with a header (114). But it was not enough for more.
Austria leaves with its head held high, and the tournament continues for Italy on July 2 with the quarter-finals. The opponent is the winner of the Belgium-Portugal match.
