Schweinsteiger eager to make amends

Published Add your comment

Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is determined to make amends for his dismissal against Croatia when his side take on Portugal in the Euro 2008 quarter-finals on Thursday.

The Bayern Munich man was the first player to be sent off in the tournament when he pushed Jerko Leko in the Group B defeat to Slaven Bilic´s men, which meant he was suspended for the 1-0 win over Austria on Monday.

"I did make a mistake against Croatia and I know that, but I will try and play my game and hope to make some positive contributions to help the team win this game," he said.
