The Austria national football team represents Austria in men's association football.
With a FIFA high ranking of 14 in August 2015, Austria has qualified for the Euro 2016 finals in France after winning their Group G with two games left; this was Austria's first successful qualification campaign since the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Their chances for a 2018 FIFA World Cup berth are high after their Euro 2016 success.
Austria were dubbed as the weakest team in Pot 2. Austria were drawn with Portugal, Iceland and Hungary; the latter coming back to a major tournament for the first time since 1986.
In the first game, they were the favourites to win against Hungary but they lost 2-0 to the Hungarians because one of the Austrian players got red carded during the match. Austria drew their second game with the eventual Euro champions Portugal 0-0. In their last game against Iceland, they lost 2-1. Unfortunately, Austria finished last in their group and were eliminated in the group stage for the second successive Euro they participated in.
