VIENNA (Reuters) – Austria defender Martin Hinteregger scored a goal that any striker would have been proud of to set up a 3-1 win over Israel in Euro 2020 qualifying on Thursday.
The Austrians moved above Slovenia, who were surprised 2-1 away to North Macedonia with a Elif Elmas brace, into the top two of Group G.
Robert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick to give leaders Poland a comfortable 3-0 win away to basement side Latvia.
The top two in the six-team group qualify for Euro 2020.
