Beenhakker: Poland hopes over

Published Add your comment

Leo Beenhakker accused Howard Webb of effectively knocking Poland out of Euro 2008 with his decision to award Austria a stoppage-time penalty last night in Vienna.

Poland were leading at the Ernst Happel Stadium until the 93rd minute when Ivica Vastic scored from the spot after Mariusz Lewandowski was penalised for holding Sebastian Prodl´s shirt.

"Maybe he (Webb) wants to show he is a big boy and has the guts to do it, I don´t know," Beenhakker said. "I´ve never had a problem in 43 years of being in football but this is something I cannot understand. We don´t have it in our own hands any more and the conclusion is we are out of the tournament."
