Austria and Hungary are even at 0-0 at halftime at the European Championship.

David Alaba has been at the heart of most of Austria's attacking moves. The Bayern Munich defender nearly put his team in the lead in the opening minute but his 25-yard shot hit the bottom of the right post.

Alaba went close again nine minutes later following a through ball from Marko Arnautovic but his first-time effort was smothered by Hungary goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly.

5:08 p.m.

Gabor Kiraly will set a tournament record when he starts in goal in Hungary's European Championship match against Austria.

At 40 years and 75 days, Kiraly is about to become the oldest player to take part in the tournament, beating Lothar Matthaus, who was 39 years and 91 days when Germany played Portugal at Euro 2000.

Kiraly made his international debut against Austria 18 years ago and saved a penalty after four minutes.

Versatile Bayern Munich defender David Alaba will be in the midfield for Austria and will push forward in support of Marc Janko, who scored five goals in his team's unbeaten qualifying campaign.

5:03 p.m.

Here are the lineups for the match between Austria and Hungary in Bordeaux in Group F:

Austria: Robert Almer, Christian Fuchs, Martin Hinteregger, Aleksandar Dragovic, Florian Klein, David Alaba, Julian Baumgartlinger, Marko Arnautovic, Zlatko Junuzovic, Martin Harnik, Marc Janko.
