11th June: vs. Cameroon (1:1) in Toulouse.

17th June: vs. Chile (1:1) in St. Etienne.

23rd June: vs. Italy (1:2) in Saint-Denis.

Austria must have been the bore of the tournament; a goal in the last minute of all of their matches. Thankfully Italy managed to get two, to send them back to the Alps.

Austria failed to qualify for the Second Round.
