23h ago 13.32 EDT 73 min: Xavi Simons spots Patrick Pentz wandering out of his goal and tries to catchthe Austrian keeper out with an audacious shot from distance. It’s not audacious enough and the ball sails well wide. Share

23h ago 13.30 EDT 72 min: Depay sends a free-kick from the left into the Austria penalty area, trying to pick out Weghorst. Not for the first time this evening, his dead ball delivery is poor. Share

23h ago 13.28 EDT 70 min: Donyell Malen is fouled by Alexander Prass and signals to the bench that he needs to come off with cramp. Wout Weghorst will replace him. Share

24h ago 13.24 EDT 63 min: Patrick Wimmer goes off, having been somewhat fortunate not to get a second yellow card for a naughty challenge moments before that goal was scored. Philipp Lienhart also makes way so Christoph Baumgartner and Konrad Lainer can come on. Share

24h ago 13.20 EDT 61 min: Austria attacked down the left with Patrick Wimmer on the ball. He played it to Florian Grillitsch on the byline and the Austria No10’s cross was inch-perfect. Schmidd’s bullet-header from 12 yards was going in anyway but De Vrij, standing at the post, helped the ball along its way. Share

24h ago 13.18 EDT GOAL! Netherlands 1-2 Austria (Schmid 59) Austria retake the lead. It’s a powerful and precise header from Romano Schmid that’s deflected in by Stefan De Vrij.

24h ago 13.16 EDT 57 min: The Netherlands win a free-kick wide on the right. Depay picks out Stefan De Vrij, who skims a header wide from just inside the Austria penalty area. Share

24h ago 13.14 EDT 55 min: Play resumes after Pentz has one of his wrists looked at. He’s well enough to launch the ball upfield from the edge of his six-yard box. Share

24h ago 13.13 EDT 54 min: From the corner, Virgil van Dijk has a header deflected over the bar for another set-piece. There’s a break in play so Austria goalkeeperPatrick Pentz can get treatment for an injury. Share

24h ago 13.11 EDT 52 min: Nathan Ake takes a throw-in down by the halfway line and it’s put out for another one. The Manchester City defender takes that throw-in too. The Dutch advance upfield and win a corner after good work by Malen. Share

24h ago 13.09 EDT 50 min: One suspects Ronaldo Koeman tore into his players at half-time, because they’ve seriously upped their game since the break. Share

24h ago 13.07 EDT 48 min: The Dutch roar out of the traps in this second half. Xavi Simons slipped the ball inside to Cody Gakpo sas they attacked on the break after an excellent tackle by Geertruida. With a three-on-two, Cakpo cut in from the right, opened his body and curled a beauty around Patrick Penz in the Austria goal. Share

24h ago 13.04 EDT Second half: Netherlands 0-1 Austria 46 min: Play resumes with the Dutch on the ball. Somewhat surprisingly, Ronald Koeman hasn’t made any more changes. It will be interesting to see if Austria change their approach in this half and elect to sit back and try to protect what they have. Share

1d ago 12.51 EDT The Netherlands: Ronald Koeman’s side has been very ponderous but they should have equalised only for Donyell Malen to sidefoot a glorious chance to atone for his earlier error wide of the post. Marko Arnautovic missed an even more inviting opportunity to double Austria’s lead, failing to connect properly with the ball when it dropped at his feet six yards out. Share Updated at 12.54 EDT

1d ago 12.49 EDT Half-time: Netherlands 0-1 Austria Peep! It’s half-time and Austria go in at the break with a one-goal lead that they thoroughly deserve. Donyell Malen shanked the ball into his own net early in the game after connecting with an excellent Alexander Prass cross from the left. Share

1d ago 12.47 EDT 45 min: Florian Grillitsch is given all the time in the world to ping the ball out wide to Stefan Posch on the right touchline under no pressure whatsoever. A visibly angry Virgil van Dijk roars at Tijani Reijnders and Jerdy Schouten, telling his midfielders to get their fingers out. Share

1d ago 12.44 EDT 43 min: Romano Schmid canters up the right flank for Austria but a poor touch lets him down and he gifts possession back to the Netherlands. Share

1d ago 12.43 EDT 42 min: The Dutch have finally perked up. Depay is penalised for a tight offside as he tries to sprint on to a low pass in behind the Austrian defence from deep. Share

1d ago 12.41 EDT 41 min: Posch, who is on a yellow card, fouls Cody Gakpo but avoids a second booking. It was a genuine attempt to play the ball. Depay fires the free-kick from a good position straight into the Austria wall. Share

1d ago 12.40 EDT 39 min: I’m not sure that goal would have stood if Arnautovic had scored, as the ref had accidentally taken out Depay in the build-up and the Dutch No10 was lying on the pitch hurt. Share

1d ago 12.39 EDT 38 min: Bart Verbruggen gets down well to save a long-range effort from Sabitzer. In the ensuing scramble, Mark Arnautovic somehow contrives to miss a sitter from about eight yards. He failed to connect properly with the ball as it dropped at his feet and sent a weak effort straight at Verbruggen.

1d ago 12.37 EDT 36 min: It looks like Cody Gakpo will take up a position on the left, with Simons playing in a more centrasl role than usual. Tisani Reijnders is dropping a little deeper in the Dutch midfield. Share

1d ago 12.36 EDT 35 min: Dutch substitution: Joey Veerman is replaced by Xavi Simons. It’s not a like for like substitution so it will be interesting to see hoow Koeman shuffles his pack out on the pitch. It’s time for a drinks break. Share

1d ago 12.35 EDT 33 min: Patrick Wimmer catches Lutsharel Geertruid on his instep with a late challenge and gets booked. He’ll miss Austria’s next game. Share

1d ago 12.33 EDT 31 min: The referee, Ivan Kruzliak, brandishes his yellow card in the direction of Stefan Posch, who had caught Memphis Depay with a late challlenge. Depay is probably the only Dutch player who is having a good game. Share

1d ago 12.31 EDT 30 min: A Marcel Sabitzer shot from distance cannons off a Dutch defender and Austria’s fans appeal optimistically for a penalty. None is forthcoming. Share

1d ago 12.30 EDT 28 min: Austria continue to hog the ball, their centre-half Phillipp Lienhart making plenty of runs deep into Dutch territory with the ball at his feet. When he goes upfield, Wober stays back and vice-versa. “He’s silky, he’s elegant on the ball,” says Danny Murphy on BBC co-comms. Share
