Power outage causes delay in Vienna

Denmark overcame Austria in the other game in Group A1 in a game delayed for 90 minutes because of a power failure.

Power went in Vienna’s second district before kick-off, causing the long delay, with fans using their phones to shine some light at the Ernst Happel Stadion.

When the game eventually started, a late Danish strike took them top of the group.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg swept the Danes into the lead before Xaver Schlager took advantage of some poor defending to level.

Denmark’s Christian Eriksen and Austrian forward Marko Arnautovic hit the post as both sides pushed for a winner.

With six minutes left Eriksen found Jens Stryger Larsen, who curled a stunning finish into the top corner.

It was a first defeat for Austria’s former Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, whose side won 3-0 in Croatia last week in his first game in charge.
