Beenhakker wary of Austria support

Published Add your comment

Poland coach Leo Beenhakker is wary of the role home advantage will play when his side look for a result against Austria on Thursday night to keep themselves in Euro 2008.

Both countries were beaten in their opening Group B game, meaning defeat at Ernst Happel Stadium will eliminate them from the tournament.

Although Poland start as favourites, Beenhakker saw how co-hosts Austria were inspired in front of their own fans against Croatia saying: "Austria again showed they a very difficult opponents to beat because it´s not a normal situation."
