Poland knocked out of Euro 2024 after defeat to Austria

Poland became the first nation to be knocked out of Euro 2024 following a 3-1 defeat to Austria.

Goals from Gernot Trauner, Christoph Baumgartner and Marko Arnautovic sealed an impressive win for Ralf Rangnick's side in Berlin, which left their opponents with two defeats from their first two Group D fixtures.

And as a result of the goalless draw between the Netherlands and France later on in the evening, Poland exited the competition with one game to spare.

Austria started the game at breakneck speed and their aggressive attacking approach paid off inside 10 minutes, when Philipp Mwene clipped a cross to the near post, where Trauner leapt to guide in a classy header.

The intensity waned as the half went on, allowing Poland to begin to mount a comeback; Nicola Zalewski rushed a shot over the bar, before Philipp Lienhart diverted a shot from Piotr Zielinski away and then bravely put his head in the way of a cross to the near post from Przemyslaw Frankowski.
