Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
With Croatia beating Denmark 1-0, Austria move level on points with Denmark while France fall to the foot of the group.
Mbappe's late equaliser rescues a point for France. Austria imposed themselves quickly on the visitors and made it an uncomfortable first half for Didier Deschamps' side. They prevented France from creating any real chances, before scoring with a clinical break of their own through Weimann. However, France were much-improved after the interval. Coman and Benzema both missed chances, before the introduction of Mbappe changed the game. The attacker slotted in a superb late equaliser, before hitting the bar late on as France pushed for a winner. Nevertheless, Austria defended with determination and held on for a 1-1 draw.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: AUSTRIA 1-1 FRANCE
90' + 4' Onisiwo breaks the offside trap and has a chance to pick out Gregoritsch inside the box, but his pass is overhit, allowing France to clear!
90' + 3' Nkunku goes down on the edge of the box after a foul from Danso. Mbappe whips in a dangerous delivery, but Danso bravely heads it behind. The resulting set-piece amounts to nothing as Austria continue to defend stoically.
90' + 1' Four minutes of stoppage time are added on.
K. Danso
Yellow Card
90' Danso is booked after tripping Nkunku on the edge of the box.
M. Sabitzer
Yellow Card
89' Sabitzer receives a yellow card for dissent.
87' OFF THE BAR! Austria struggle to clear a loose ball inside the box. Mbappe pounces and drills a low, 12-yard strike that Pentz deflects onto the bar before snatching the rebound.
85' Well, France have their equaliser finally. Can they now go on and win this game against a tiring Austria?
C. Nkunku
Assist
83' Nkunku spotted the run of Mbappe and played a throughball with the perfect weight to allow the striker to race through and finish superbly.
K. Mbappé
Goal
83' GOALL! MBAPPE! 1-1. France equalise. Konate races out the back and finds Mbappe, who plays a rapid one-two with Nkunku, before collecting the return pass and lashing a fierce finish in at the near post from 12 yards!
82' Konate heads Nkunku's corner well over the bar. France are beginning to run out of ideas.
C. Nkunku
K. Coman
79' Coman heads off with Nkunku taking his place.
77' France have still only managed three shots from inside the box in the second half.
75' France have just lost their rhythm again. Right now it's looking as though Austria can hold them at bay.
73' Onisiwo cuts inside from the left and searches for Gregoritsch with a deep cross, but it sails behind for a goal kick. Austria are going to have plenty of chances to kill this game off on the break.
71' Austria make a rare foray forward. Gregoritsch leads a three-on-three before rolling it out to Sabitzer. The attacker darts into the box, but Saliba stretches to dispossess him.
K. Danso
D. Alaba
69' Alaba has taken a knock and he can't continue. Danso takes his place.
68' Mbappe slips past Seiwald and searches for Benzema with a crisp throughball, but Trauner stretches to cut it out at the crucial moment.
66' Benzema has already had five shots in this game. You'd think he'll be key to France's hopes of a comeback.
K. Onisiwo
M. Arnautović
64' Austria also make two changes: the first sees Arnautovic head off for Onisiwo.
M. Gregoritsch
A. Weimann
64' Weimann is replaced by Gregoritsch up top.
M. Guendouzi
A. Tchouaméni
63' Tchouameni is replaced by Guendouzi in midfield.
K. Mbappé
A. Griezmann
63' Griezmann is replaced by Mbappe after a quiet game.
62' Arnautovic fires a wild shot high and wide from 30 yards.
60' France have been much better in this half. They've moved the ball much more quickly and have shown more ambition. Austria will struggle to hold on if this continues.
58' MISS! Griezmann's low cross finds Coman at the back post. Coman jinks past Laimer, and has the whole goal at his mercy! However, the attacker loses his composure and hammers a wild shot over from eight yards.
56' Save! Pavard's 25-yard strike is pushed to safety by Pentz.
V. Lazaro
S. Lainer
54' Lainer was close to a red card and couldn't deal with Coman, so he's subbed off with Lazaro coming on.
53' Lainer can't deal with Coman now that he's so close to a second yellow. This time Coman breezes to the byline before drilling in a low cross that Pentz gathers.
52' CLOSE! Coman knocks Pavard's cross down to Benzema, but the striker's 12-yard volley flicks off Trauner before spinning just wide!
50' Griezmann curls a dangerous free-kick to the back post but Wober is there to clear.
48' Lainer - who's on a yellow card - bundles Coman over. The referee gives him a final warning and just awards a free-kick.
46' France kick off the second half.
Four of France's six shots came from outside the box in the first 45 minutes. They'll need to find a way to create better shooting opportunities if they're to recover after the break.
Weimann gives Austria the lead at half-time. This has been a cagey game: Austria have played in a sophisticated, structured manner and they've prevented France from finding space to exploit. The visitors enjoyed plenty of possession but struggled to create any chances. Eventually, they grew frustrated and Austria took full advantage. The hosts executed a clinical counter-attack that ended with Laimer setting up Weimann for a neat tap-in to make it 1-0 going into the interval.
45' HALF-TIME: AUSTRIA 1-0 FRANCE
43' Pentz pushes Benzema's curling effort to safety.
41' CHANCE! Austria almost double their lead. Laimer races away on the break and finds Arnautovic inside the box. Arnautovic swivels past Saliba, before hitting a disappointing effort straight at Lloris from 12 yards.
39' Well, Austria will be delighted with this half. They've frustrated France in the first 30 minutes and they've capitalised when they finally got their chance on the break.
K. Laimer
Assist
37' It was a superb cross from Laimer. Austria had worked an intricate move to free him near the byline and he kept his composure and found Weimann who applied a simple finish from close range!
A. Weimann
Goal
37' GOALL! WEIMANN! 1-0. Austria take the lead. The hosts hit France on the break as Arnautovic dribbles into the box. The striker finds Laimer on the overlap and he places a precise low cross into the six-yard box, where Weimann is on hand to tap it into an empty net!
35' The pace of this game has slowed down notably as we approach half-time.
33' Austria haven't really caused France any problems, but they'll be pleased with their defensive work. The visitors have only produced two shots from inside the box.
31' Griezmann finds a little space on the edge of the box, but he hits a tame effort straight at Pentz.
29' Saliba prevents Arnautovic from latching onto Schlager's pass and it goes behind for a corner. Lainer heads the resulting set-piece comfortably into the arms of Lloris.
27' Sabitzer's corner is cleared at the back post. Aside from Pentz's brilliant double-save, this has been a tight, cagey game.
25' Coman dribbles ominously into the box, but Lainer stands him up and blocks his eventual shot.
23' Austria press high up the pitch, forcing Lloris into a dreadful clearance into the stands.
21' France knock it confidently around the back as they begin to take control of this game.
19' DOUBLE SAVE! Griezmann's free-kick evades everyone and Pentz parries it into the air! Benzema gets there first and pokes an awkward close-range effort back at goal, but Pentz raises a hand from the floor to flick it to safety! That was some save.
N. Seiwald
Yellow Card
17' Austria pick up another booking. France hit the hosts on the break and Seiwald slides in to stop Diaby getting in behind down the right flank - he's deservedly shown a yellow card.
15' Tchouameni lets fly from 25 yards but it sails high and wide.
13' Laimer races in behind the France defence and tumbles under pressure from Konate, but there wasn't much contact and the referee waves play on.
11' France work a clever free-kick into the box, but Trauner reads the danger and clears.
S. Lainer
Yellow Card
9' Lainer is booked for a heavy tackle on Coman near the touchline.
8' Wober wins the game's first corner after excellent work down the left flank. Alaba whips it in, but it evades everyone in the box.
6' Schlager searches for Lainer on the overlap but his pass is a little too heavy. Nevertheless, Austria have made a confident start.
4' Weimann collects a neat flick from Arnautovic and for a moment it looks as though he'll be clean through! However, the linesman has his flag raised for offside.
2' Austria look to impose themselves instantly as Laimer hammers into Hernandez.
1' Austria kick off the first half.
