WATCH: MATCH HIGHLIGHTS
N IRELAND 1-2 AUSTRIA
It's a harsh result for Northern Ireland. They were on their way to their first Nations League point and had scored for the first time in four games, but a late Lazaro goals seals a final victory for Austria.
GOAL! N IRELAND 1-2 AUSTRIA (Lazaro, 90+2)
Heartbreak for Northern Ireland! It was all looking so positive for the hosts but they concede late on.
It's a poor bit of play from Jones in midfield that allows Alaba to nick in and steal the ball, driving forward before feeding Arnautovic down the right of the box.
He then plays the ball across the box for the incoming Lazaro on the left who curls a beautiful effort into the top far corner.
N IRELAND 1-1 AUSTRIA
90: Two minutes of added time.
88: A good performance from Corry Evans tonight and he is replaced late on with McNair coming on to shore up Northern Ireland's defence in the final few minutes.
86: An bit of a sloppy save from Carson as Ulmer puts a cross into the area, and it bobbles for the goalkeeper, who needs a few tries before getting steady hands onto the ball.
84: A good period of possession for Austria as Lainer pings the ball into the box from the right, but Davis is there to clear the danger.
81: Free kick to Northern Ireland over on the left of the area, but Davis delivery goes well wide of the post. Not his best.
79: HANDBAGSSS!! Tensions are rising at Windsor Park!
It's an initial tussle between McAuley and Arnautovic that sees the two go to ground. As McAuley tries to get up, he has an arm around the neck of the striker - which doesn't look all the pleasant - before they get to their feet.
Alaba comes storming in as McAuley and Arnautovic have a few words, and is restrained by Smith. Alaba tries to wriggle out of the hold, flinging his arms around, but things soon calm down.
McAuley and Alaba are both shown yellow cards there and can count themselves lucky I think.
77: CHANCE!! Best chance Northern Ireland have had since scoring. Smith puts a great, long throw into the area which Baumgartlinger initially heads away.
But Saville picks up the clearance - getting around Zulj - before striking, but it just goes past the post with Lindner leaping to save.
74: Here comes Lafferty and Whyte, with McGinn and Boyce making way.
74: WIDE! Again from Alaba!
Once again, Alaba gets the better of Dallas before slipping the ball to Schlager down the right of the box. He holds it up well and waits for the run of Alaba, who receives the ball back at the top of the area before striking but it flies over the face of goal.
72: Northern Ireland are preparing the big guns too - Lafferty and Whyte are stripped to come on.
N IRELAND 1-1 AUSTRIA
71: Here comes the big man, Arnautovic replaces Gregoritsch for Austria.
70: WIDE! A good effort from Alaba who picks the ball up in the middle of the park, cuts past Dallas before striking, and it whistles just past the post.
68: Not a great touch at all from Schlager there as Gregoritsch fires a ball into the area. It looked to be heading goalwards but the goalscorer decides to try and help it on the way, but his heavy touch takes it well past the upright.
67: Another free kick goes begging for Northern Ireland as Jones is body checked by Dragovic, with a bit of frustration creeping in for the home fans.
66: NO FOUL! It looked like once from here as Saville drives towards goal, but Hinteregger pushes the Northern Ireland man out of the way to get onto the ball.
It's a clear push, but the referee waves away the claims with boos coming from the home fans.
64: Northern Ireland have seen the better of the ball since their equaliser and they will certainly be hoping for another before the end of the game.
They are yet to register a point in the Nations League this year.
WATCH: EVANS EQUALISER
60: Austria are a bit lucky to not have a few more yellow cards to their name as Lainer lunges in on a tackle on Boyce - giving Northern Ireland the free kick - but no cards are shown by the referee.
GOAL! N IRELAND 1-1 AUSTRIA (Corry Evans, 57)
And after four international games, Northern Ireland have scored a goal!
It's a stroke of luck but Northern Ireland deserve it, as does Corry Evans. Jones slips the ball into his path and as he strikes, it takes a deflection off the leg of Hinteregger before curling into the back of the net.
There are huge celebrations at Windsor Park and you can feel the relief.
WATCH: AUSTRIA OPENER
N IRELAND 0-1 AUSTRIA
55: CHANCE! A good move from Northern Ireland but Davis sees his shot blocked by the feet of Dragovic before the loose ball falls to McAuley, but his effort goes high and wide of the goal.
53: NO PENALTY! Northern Ireland are calling for a penalty as Jonny Evans is fouled by Dragovic, but the referee waves away the claims instantly.
The call was more from the fans than the players, who did not seem to think there was much in it.
N IRELAND 0-1 AUSTRIA
52: First yellow card of the game as Jones is pulled back by Baumgartlinger, with the Austria captain into the book.
GOAL! N IRELAND 0-1 AUSTRIA (Schlager, 49)
What an impact Zulj has had! He picks up an assist four minutes after coming on as a half time sub.
He is set away down the left-hand side before cutting the ball back into the area. Alaba lets it run back to Schlager who sweeps the ball home from just inside the area.
Saville arguably should have done better with his marking there, but Schlager nets his first goal on his first competitive start for Austria.
N IRELAND 0-0 AUSTRIA
48: Northern Ireland have seen the better of the ball since the break, but have been sitting quite deep.
N IRELAND 0-0 AUSTRIA
46: Austria get the game back under way at the break and they've made a change with Zulj replacing Ilsanker for the second half.
WATCH: McGINN CURLS WIDE
That's the half at Windsor Park and in all honesty, it was less than inspiring.
You can tell there is little to play for, although Northern Ireland have had the better chances with Corry Evans twice going close before Niall McGinn whipped a free kick just past the post.
David Alaba did the same at the other end but Austria have done little else going forward.
45: One minute of added time.
44: CLOSE! A wonderful delivery from McGinn, who gets the ball up and over the wall but it goes JUST wide of the post.
That was very close indeed.
43: Free kick to Northern Ireland as Saville is fouled just outside the area by Schlager. Plenty of green shirts around this one...
41: A slip from Dallas there as Davis tries to slide him in, but it does force a clearance behind from Baumgartlinger but they cannot do much with the corner.
37: It has been a tepid first half so far really, although Norther Ireland have had two good chances, both through Corry Evans.
34: OUCH! Dallas is down on the touchline as Ilsanker smashes a clearance into his face - not intentionally.
He had a similar incident for Leeds against Wigan the other week, but luckily he and his face are just fine. There is a cuddle with Ilsanker too, no malice in the incident whatsoever. Just bad luck!
32: CLOSE! Pressure on Lindner there as Ulmer plays the ball back to his goalkeeper. Corry Evans rushes to meet the ball as Lindner clears quickly and that could well have been a big mistake from the Austrian.
There is a break in play before the throw in is taken as Boyce goes down clutching his knee, but after a bit of medical attention, he will be OK to continue.
29: An easy collection for Carson - who is making his competitive Northern Ireland debut - as Alaba tries to hammer home from distance but it takes a big deflection on the way through before looping into the goalkeeper's hands.
27: Free kick to Austria now, although quite deep, as Alaba is fouled by Davis with a snapped challenge at his heels.
26: Davis delivers but Hinteregger heads it behind for a corner.
McGinn puts it in this time, but it flashes over the heads of everyone in the area.
25: Free kick to Northern Ireland as Saville is fouled by Schlager. Davis and Dallas over it...
23: Great touch from Jonny Evans to take the ball out of the path of Gregoritsch, giving it enough pace so the forward cannot test Carson.
20: CHANCE!! Big chance comes and goes for Northern Ireland.
The free kick is delivered by McGinn, with Boyce rising highest to meet it. His header bounces off the back of Jonny Evans before Corry Evans tries to slot home at the back post, but is flagged for offside as Austria make the block.
18: Free kick to the hosts as Alaba fouls Dallas over on the left flank. It's a must from the Austrian or Dallas would have got away with ease.
N IRELAND 0-0 AUSTIRA
15: SAVE! Schlager lays the ball off to Gregoritsch who takes a few strides before striking from distance, with Carson getting down low to make the save.
However, he doesn't collect it well and the ball rolls behind for a Austira corner. Northern Ireland initially clear the delivery from Alaba before Schlager sends a shot whistling well wide.
14: OVER! A superb delivery from Alaba, but he doesn't quite get enough dip on the ball as it goes over the top of the goal. Carson looked to have it covered if it was on target, but a warning sign from Austria.
13: Free kick to Austria just inches outside the area as Saville nicks at the feet of Alaba, sending him to ground. The Bayern Munich man is over it...
10: Austria are seeing an extended period on the ball now, with Alaba looking dangerous on the left wing but he hasn't done too much to worry the Northern Ireland defence so far.
7: SAVE!! It looked innocuous but Lindner is forced into a leaping save!
Boyce darts into the area and Hinteregger fails to clear properly, allowing Evans to get onto the ball and strike, taking a deflection off Lainer on the way through.
But Lindner does well to make a leaping save and push the ball over the crossbar.
