Austria vs North Macedonia LIVE: Euro 2020 latest score, goals and updates from fixture today

Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Austria take on North Macedonia as Group C begins at Euro 2020 in Bucharest, Romania.

Franco Foda is looking to guide his side to their first ever win at the competition and their first game at the tournament against the small Balkan nation presents a glorious opportunity.

“We have a very good atmosphere and we have waited for a year for this,” Foda said. “We want to win it at all cost, start the tournament on a positive foot. I feel no pressure and it told the team and the players that we can make history tomorrow and that is our aim.”

North Macedonia enter the game with two losses to the Austrians in qualification, winning 4-1 and 2-1.

David Alaba is one to watch closely, having switched from Bayern Munich to Real Madrid this summer, with the 28-year-old taking the positives from a 1-0 friendly defeat to England last time out.

“All in all, it was OK,” Alaba said. “We created a lot of chances, but unfortunately we didn’t convert them.”

Euro 2020: Austria 0-0 North Macedonia

13’: A quiet start from both sides. For a brief moment it looked as if Macedonia where in on goal, as Elmas attempted a slide through pass into the path of Pandev, but the ball was just a little too strong.

Macedonia are showing a confidence that belies their standings in the FIFA world rankings. They currently sit in 62nd position in the table.

Kalvin Phillips shines in unfamiliar role

The decision to start Kalvin Phillips was also a somewhat divisive one with many believing doing so was a negative rather than a proactive step.

The Leeds midfielder had different ideas, however.

He was outstanding in the middle of the park, carrying the ball superbly well, combative in the tackle as well as providing the assist for Raheem Sterling’s decisive goal.

Here Lawrence Ostlere digs into his performance and what it means for the Three Lions’ options going forward.

England boss Gareth Southgate, speaking to BBC Sport:

“It’s lovely to have given our fans and our country a really enjoyable afternoon. The players dealt with the big occasion really well, right from the start, and in incredible heat. They played well, settled early in the game. There were times when the tempo dropped just because of the heat, but for the majority of the game we looked in control, and didn’t give them many opportunities.”

But the Atletico Madrid defender impressed alongside several others as England started the tournament as they mean to go on.

Here’s what Alex Pattle made of his performance.
