The Ernst Happel stadium was filled to the rafters for a duel to the German coach, Joachim Löw, had previously warned that it would be a match with the same level contenders. I said or not courtesy to an opponent who does not beat Germany in a competitive match since 1978, the fact is that Austria kept the Germans at bay for much of the game.

Löw distributed his men in line too early against a tough Austrian defense. Locals stepped on the accelerator and tried to leave very vertical, but almost exclusively with long balls and forced passes on plays with more heart than technique.

Still, a combination Arnautovic, Harnik Ivanschitz and ended in the 12th minute with a shot that set the left post went out by inches.
Austria continued to attack but not wanting to know what to do with the ball after crossing the German midfield and relying too distant shots could hardly arrive.

But against Germany, however fallona or hesitant you are, is dangerous not complete the scoring options. When the Alpine were more grown, and the stroke of half, Marco Reus collected the ball just outside the goal area and dribbled Austrian one hand to cross in the bottom right and get the 0-1 to Germany.

The psychological blow was effective and the home side began the second half diminished and nerves, such as those to be carried forward Kavlak to Müller, within the area and the referee a few steps. Özil was responsible for launching and score the penalty of 0-2 and the match with the sentenced was announced.

However, Austria brought honor and in the 56th minute was invented Arnautovic a pass on the edge of the bottom line came to the foot of Junuzovic, who only had to push the ball to beat Manuel Neuer.

With the 1-2, Austria became more aggressive and tried to win but not good football. The lack of ideas, ingenuity or simply the quality of his players regulate again be lethal to Austria.

Arnautovic, two minutes from the end, had the opportunity to draw on a play in which, alone with the keeper, received a ball that ended deadly need pulling out. A Germany away from his usual quality dedicated the last minute to waste time and wait for the end of a match, with inferior opponent included, ended up being more complicated than one would expect from the triple world champion.

Sweden debuts with win
In the other group match, Sweden, which rested on the first day, won 2-0 with goals from Elm Kazakhstan and Berg. Ibra left to remember the assistance of the second.
