A late Jonathan Walters goal gave the Republic of Ireland a share of the points at home to Austria on Sunday.
Ireland were well below-par in the first-half and eventually went behind just after the half-hour mark when Hinteregger fired home after a corner.
In the second period, Martin O’Neill’s side improved and after pushing for the equaliser, the goal eventually came.
Walters was the goal-hero at the Aviva, with the Stoke attacker latching onto a long-ball before blasting past Heinz Lindner.
The Boys in Green now looked to complete the comeback, with Shane Duffy seeing his goal chalked off for a foul.
The game would end all-square, a result which saw Ireland go top of Group D, at least temporarily.
