Both sides lost to Hungary and beat Netherlands, so there was alot to play for.
Northern Ireland took the lead on the 30th minutes as a well placed header from Jones allowed Magennis have a brief moment to compose himself and put the ball by the near post to score the first goal of the game. Magennis proved to have both power and precision and that was evident in his boxing celebration.
Jones proved to be pulling the strings for the north and found himself on the scoresheet just in the dying embers of the first half. Delicately placing the ball in his opposite corner, but the same corner Magennis blew off earlier.
David Alaba had the best chance to put Austria ahead in the second hald with a freekick after a typically tough challenge. Alabas shot pushed just over the bar. Speaking of tough tackles Craig Cathcart was sent off fot the second time in this tournament but he wont care as his side have made it to the next round. Austria have to wait on results elsewhere before confirming if they need to rebook their hotel rooms.
