    • - It's a blow for Ukraine in their build up to Euro 2012, they've got one game left before the tournament starts. Austria fully deserve their victory, a fantastic win for them. Thanks for joining us. Full time: Austria 3 Ukraine 2.
    • 90'+3 The final whistle is blown! A dramatic ending, Austria win 3-2 in Innsbruck.
    • 90'+2 Last chance for Ukraine with a corner, which is headed away by Austria.
    • 90'+1 We'll have three minutes of stoppage time.
    • 90' Very good performance tonight from Austria, to go with a lacklustre one from Ukraine.
    • 90' GOAL! Incredible goal from Arnautovic! The ball falls to him on the left, he cuts into the box and with his right foot curls the ball into the far corner. Austria lead!
    • 88' Possession of the ball is changing hands regularly as passes go astray from both sides.
    • 87' Burgstaller and Garics come close to creating something for Austria, but it's eventually cut out by Ukraine and cleared away.
    • 86' Ukraine now have the ball back but give away a free kick needlessly by Shevchenko.
    • 85' Austria still trying to find the winner, but the missing pace of Alaba is a loss to them.
    • 84' The game is turning a little scrappy now, with the pace slowing significantly.
    • 83' Tymoschuk goes for goal just outside the penalty area but the ball flies just wide.
    • 82' Substitution for Austria, Alaba is replaced by Pehlivan.
    • 81' Ukraine are patiently playing the ball around in the middle of the field, looking for their opportunity to find the winner.
    • 79' After a frantic ten minutes, the game has really settled down now.
    • 78' Quick feet from Alaba as he skips a challenge, but he runs out of space to deliver a cross into the Ukraine box.
    • 77' Austria pushing for another goal but Ukraine cut out the pass.
    • 76' Great cross from the corner which is headed towards goal by Milevskiy which is cleared off the line by Suttner!
    • 76' Ukraine win a corner after positive play from Rakitskiy.
    • 75' Burgstaller is on for Ivanschitz.
    • 74' Alaba goes close for Austria! He arrives at pace into the Ukraine box but on the volley his shot goes wide of the post.
    • 73' Yarmolenko bursts into the Austria box but once again his final ball is lacking. Perhaps should have shot.
    • 72' Tymoschuk looks to slice open the Austria defence but his pass is cut out.
    • 70' Junuzovic feels hard-done-by as he goes down on the edge of the Ukraine box with no free-kick given.
    • 69' The game has settled a little now as both teams get their breath back.
    • 68' Ukraine look to build an attack but the attempted through ball is cut out.
    • 67' Substitution for Austria, Kavlak is coming on for Baumgartlinger.
    • 66' Very open game now, and a much better spectacle than the first half.
    • 65' Substitutions for both sides. Burger comes on for Janko for Austria. Ukraine bring Rotan on for Nazarenko.
    • 65' GOAL! Gusev equalises for Ukraine! It's a fabulous shot. After being set up by Yarmolenko, Gusev takes his time and curls the ball past Lindner into the top corner.
    • 63' Great response from the home side. When they want to attack, they look very threatening, and Ukraine can't handle the pace of their forwards.
    • 62' GOAL! Austria take the lead once again, and it's come from lovely play from Alaba. He crosses and after Ivanschitz scuffs his shot, the ball falls to Arnautovic to pick his spot and lash the ball past Koval.
    • 61' Alaba still looks threatening down the Austria left. They're looking to get attacks going through him.
    • 60' Austria now trying to settle down on the ball by playing it amongst their defenders.
    • 59' Substitution for Ukraine. Konoplyanka comes off to be replaced by Butko.
    • 58' Ukraine have settled back into the game now, and look to be on top.
    • 57' Straight from the kick off, Junuzovic tries to launch an attack for Austria, but it breaks down.
    • 56' GOAL! Ukraine equalise. Nazarenko takes the free-kick, it hits the wall and falls to Yarmolenko, who squares to Gusev to tap in.
    • 55' Ukraine have won a free kick just to the left of centre just ouside the Austria box. Big chance for them to draw level here.
    • 54' Konoplyanka hits a decent shot from the edge of the Austria box after being set up by Shevchenko. Goalkeeper Lindner saves well down to his right.
    • 53' Suttner fouls Yarmolenko. Ukraine resist the urge to pump the ball into the box, instead playing it all the way back.
    • 52' At the other end, Nazarenko finds the ball falls to him on the edge of the Austria box, but his shot his wild and over the bar.
    • 51' Alaba plays a nice one-two with Janko, he plays the ball back which is struck by Garics just wide of Koval's right post. Decent play by the hosts.
    • 50' It's all Austria in this first 5 minutes of the second half. They're really playing the ball around confidently.
    • 49' Ivanschitz attempts to get down the left wing but he's brought down and it's another promising free-kick to Austria. Junuzovic hits it straight at Koval.
    • 48' Austria have the better of the opening stages of this half, as they did in the first.
    • 47' A couple of changes which I'll attempt to keep you abreast of. Koval replaces Goryainov in the Ukraine goal, Shevchenko is also on, as is Milevskiy.
    • 46' We're underway for the second half in Innsbruck.
    • 45'+2 The first half comes to an end, with Austria leading 1-0 at the break. Ukraine look like they could threaten something, but far too often they've made simple mistakes. Coach Blokhin will demand more in the second half.
    • 45'+2 Probably the last action of the first half to come, and it's another promising free kick from Austria, which comes to nothing.
    • 45'+1 They'll be two minutes of stoppage time.
    • 45' Scharner bursts out of defence and looks to mount a promising attack but eventually it's cut out by Ukraine.
    • 44' Yarmolenko once again looks like he may threaten down the right, but once again he gives the ball away too cheaply and takes the wrong option.
    • 43' Austria are now just playing the ball around their back four, content to keep Ukraine at bay.
    • 42' Another long ball from Ukraine is overhit and it's gone out for a throw-in to Austria.
    • 41' It's been a bit of a scrappy half from both sides, with neither managing to play the final ball to create anything meaningful.
    • 40' Khacheridi is back on the pitch, and he looks like he'll at least see this through to half time.
    • 39' Khacheridi has gone down in some discomfort holding his back. He landed rather awkwardly after going up for a header with Janko.
    • 38' Really bad challenge by Mikhalik, which is punished with a yellow card. Not too 'friendly' that tackle.
    • 37' Corner from Austria, which is headed over the bar by Prodil.
    • 36' There have been flashes of promising play from Ukraine, but they're making too many mistakes. Having said that, Devic has just been played into the Austria box, but is wrongly judged offside.
    • 35' Ukraine still have one more game to come ahead of Euro 2012, they take on Turkey on Tuesday.
    • 34' The resulting free-kick is floated into the Ukraine box by Austria, but it sails through to Goryainov.
    • 33' Poor challenge by Tymoschuk after Konoplyanka is muscled off the ball far too easily.
    • 32' Wasted by Yarmolenko, who, after positive build-up, goes for glory when he should have passed the ball. It's given away though.
    • 31' In fact, there we have it. Ukraine have had 62% of the ball for the first 30 minutes of the game, but they've done very little with it.
    • 30' Ukraine marginally have the better of the game now, but they're still a goal down.
    • 29' We've just seen an optimistic, and slightly odd shot from Rakitskiy. The right-back attempts a shot from near the half-way line, which is blasted closer to the corner flag.
    • 28' It turns out Klein isn't alright, he's coming off to be replaced by Garics.
    • 27' Gusev attempts a shot from the edge of the box after decent build up play, but he's hit it wide.
    • 26' Ukraine coach Blokhin looks a little frustrated by the performance of his side. He's barking instructions from the touch-line.
    • 25' Alaba is playing a lot more advanced than he does for Bayern Munich tonight. He's playing on the left wing, very attacking, but tracking back when needed.
    • 24' Austria defender Klein has had to receive treatment, but he's back on the pitch now and looks to be fine.
    • 23' Has to be said that goes down as real missed opportunity for Ukraine, and a let off for Austria.
    • 22' Yarmolenko gets a lovely cross in which falls to Konoplyanka, inside the 6 yard box. Instead of shooting for goal, he tries to square it. Real opportunity for the visitors, who should of at least hit the target.
    • 21' Free-kick to Austria on the right is swung in and it's gone out for a goal kick to Ukraine. Possibly looked like it had come off of one of the visiting players, though.
    • 20' So far, there'll be little to worry England, France or Sweden fans ahead of Euro 2012, as Ukraine have looked very ordinary. Plenty of time for that to change.
    • 19' Good cross in from Konoplyanka but it's headed away by Austria.
    • 18' Good enough corner from Austria, but no-one is on the end of it and it's been cleared by Ukraine.
    • 17' Corner to Austria after a decent attack.
    • 16' Neither side are able to get on top of the game at the moment.
    • 15' Much better from Ukraine, who play short passes on the right and threaten to unlock the Austrian defence but the through-ball is over hit.
    • 14' Rakitskiy plays a lovely chipped pass in to Yarmolenko but the striker didn't read it and it's in the hands of Austria goalkeeper Lindner.
    • 13' Opportunity now for Ukraine to swing in a free kick from the left hand side after a foul on Devic.
    • 12' Nice play from Alaba as he uses his pace to try to build an attack down the left, but it breaks down.
    • 11' Ukraine have managed to get out of their own half now, as they attempt to build an attack of their own.
    • 10' Ukraine now trying to get some time on the ball, but they're being pressured by a very high Austria line.
    • 9' Austria have control of the ball and look the more threatening side.
    • 8' Worth noting the goalkeeper position for Ukraine has been a bit of a nightmare. Metalist stopper Goryainov is no where near the first choice, having made just a single cap. Injuries mean this is a problematic position for the Euro 2012 co-hosts.
    • 7' Austria get a good early cross into the box which is claimed by Goryainov.
    • 6' Tymoschuk gives away a free kick in the centre circle, perhaps a slightly pointless challenge.
    • 5' Ukraine now trying to get back into the game, but Austria are happy to play the ball around their defence.
    • 4' Really poor start from Ukraine, not what they were looking for at all.
    • 3' GOAL! Austria take the lead from the free-kick! It's a lovely free-kick from Zlatko Januzovic which bends over the wall and into the corner of the net.
    • 3' Ukraine give away a free kick right on the edge of their own area. Opportunity for the hosts here.
    • 2' Slightly awkward start from Austrian goalkeeper Lindner, who is making his debut. He receives a backpass, but decides to take a touch and is almost punished by the Ukraine attack.
    • 2' Ukraine are playing in their traditional all yellow strip with blue trim and will play from right to left as we view it. Austria are in white and black.
    • 1' We're underway in Austria.
    • 19:30 The teams are going through the national anthems in Innsbruck.
    • 19:27 No Shevchenko in the starting 11 for Ukraine, who name the rest of their Euro 2012 squad on the bench. The former AC Milan and Chelsea striker is expected to start in games at this summer's tournament.
    • 19:25 TEAMS: Austria: Lindner, Scharner, Prodl, Klein, Suttner, Ivanschitz, Baumgartlinger, Zlatko, Alaba, Arnautovic, Janko. /// Ukraine: Goryainov, Mikhalik, Rakitskiy, Khacheridi, Gusev, Nazarenko, Tymoschuk, Devic, Voronin, Konoplyanka, Yarmolenko.
    • 19:20 Austria missed out on qualification for Euro 2012. They co-hosted the tournament four years ago. Last time out in February, the Austrians beat Finland 3-1.
    • 19:18 This game is of particular interest to England fans, with Ukraine drawn in the same group as them for Euro 2012. The tournament co-hosts come off the back of a 4-0 win over Estonia on Monday.
    • 19:15 Good evening and welcome to Eurosport's live coverage of the pre-Euro 2012 friendly between Austria and Ukraine at the Tivoli Neu.
