Austria Fight Hard, Earn Late Penalty

12 June 2008 by

Austria 1 – 1 Poland

Austria have fought hard all the match to find a penalty in the dying minutes just like Turkey beat Switzerland in the 92 minute. Austria have levelled the match in the 92 minute from Vastic and there is practically no time left for Poland to snatch an unlikely winner. However, Austria may count themselves ‘stupid’ after failing to take the lead on numerous occasions in the early periods of the first half. Austria looked better than their performance against shining Croatia and they looked strong mentally on the pitch although they were also slightly unlucky against an in-form Boruc.

Austria Can Qualify To The Quarter-Finals SHOULD they beat Germany

Highly Unlikely but Austria can get through to the quarter IF they beat Germany in their final match. The Germans lost to Croatia today and that leaves Croatia qualified and Germany on 3 points. Austria are on 1 point as well as Poland. Austria need the 3 points to finish just one point above Germany and pull the shockest result but it is a dreaming result that can only happens when pigs start flying.

However thumbs up for Austria’s Performance…great match from the co-hosts…at least there is still some excitement amongst one host-nation…surprisingly by the host which fans had said that they themselves are losers and will shame the nation by taking part in the tournament.
