Xaver Schlager put Austria ahead in the 49th minute before Corry Evans scored the equaliser eight minutes later. Hertha BSC winger Valentino Lazaro then popped up with the winner in the third minute of extra time. Bosnia and Herzegovina have been promoted to League A, whilst Northern Ireland were relegated to League C.
