Sorry about the delay, but my internet was down, so I could not write. Time for a rant.
THE POLES ARE OUT OF UEFA EURO 2008! ARRGH!!!
A Saddened Polish Fan
Coach Leo Beenhakker completely revitalized this team and what…they can’t even win a single game in their group.
They get a solid chance to beat Germany for the first time, but they mess that up. Alright. I wasn’t really expecting to win that one.
Then they play Austria, the worst team in the group. First, they let in like 4 breakaways which were defended brilliantly by Artur Boruc. If not for him, they would be out of the game. Then they score a great goal and defend well. Then the stupid English referee calls a penalty kick for a tiny tug of the shirt! What!? There is no way the ref should decide the final outcome of the game like that. That was no penalty. Every team has been doing stuff like that and you decide to call it now, just when the Poles are about to win!
Finally, they need to beat Croatia to have any chance of going through. And what do they do? Nothing! Boruc plays amazingly again, but there is no offense! If you can’t tell already, I’m a bit peeved by the whole thing.
I suppose there will always be next time.
