France won a minimal victory over Austria in the first round of Euro 2024

The fate of the match was decided by Weber’s own goal, and Mbappe did not finish the match due to a nose injury

France beat with a minimal score Austria in the first round match of Group D European Championship 2024 – 1:0.

Ralf Rangnick’s team played a strong opening half hour, in no way inferior to one of the main favorites of the tournament. The underdog could have opened the scoring – Christoph Baumgartner missed a good chance.

And then an accident happened for Das Thiem – after Kylian Mbappe’s pass and pass, the ball bounced off Maximilian Weber’s head into Patrick Pentz’s goal.

Later, Le Bleu stepped up their game and controlled the course of the match. Repeatedly, Didier Deschamps’ team could increase the score, but neither Mbappe, nor Antoine Griezmann, nor Marcus Thuram, nor Olivier Giroud were able to add to their scoring tally.

At the end of the meeting there was trouble for the favorite – Kylian Mbappe broke his nose in a horse collision with Kevin Danso and, having lost a lot of blood, was forced to leave the field.

After the first round, the French lead Quartet D together with the Netherlands team, which the day before won a strong-willed victory (2:1) over Poland.

In the second round, the group leaders will play each other on June 21.
