Nations League: France saves itself, Austria descends

Soccer world champion France was only able to avert relegation from the Nations League with support.

The team of national coach Didier Deschamps lost at the end of group 1 with 0:2 (0:2) in Denmark, but benefited from the 1:3 (1:1) of the Austrians against runner-up Croatia. Due to the defeat, the team of German coach Ralf Rangnick was relegated to League B. Croatia, on the other hand, reached the semi-finals (14/15 June 2023) as group winners.

As in the first leg defeat against Denmark (1:2), the disappointing French had big problems with the European Championship semi-finalists and showed themselves to be out of shape again just under two months before the start of the World Cup. Kasper Dolberg (34th) and Andreas Skov Olsen (39th) scored for the hosts to a deserved victory.

Real Madrid's Luka Modrić put the Croatians ahead in Vienna after just six minutes. Christoph Baumgartner from 1899 Hoffenheim equalized three minutes later. After the change of sides, Marko Livaja (69th) and Dejan Lovren (72nd) made the decision.

In Group 4, coach Louis van Gaal's Netherlands secured first place with a 1-0 (0-0) win over Belgium and are in the finals of the Nations League. Virgil van Dijk scored for Oranje (73'). After the 0-1 (0-0) against Poland, Wales has to compete in League B in the upcoming Nations League season.
