Arnautovic winner leaves Northern Ireland pointless in Nations League

Jamal Lewis and Valentino Lazaro challenge for possession during the match in Vienna

Northern Ireland's Nations League hopes suffered a major setback as Marko Arnautovic's second-half goal condemned them to a 1-0 defeat by Austria.

NI had lost their opening game 2-1 to Bosnia-Herzegovina in Group B3 of the competition in September.

Arnautovic ran in behind Paddy McNair and slipped the ball past Bailey Peacock-Farrell for the winner.

Paddy McNair and Steven Davis had chances while Will Grigg's late header cannoned off the inside of the post.
