Euro 2008 Poland - Austria 12/06

I've just finished watching Euro studio on Polsat and didn't really like it.

Lots of moaning about Blaszczykowski's absence, about Golanski's new position, Zurawski's mysterious injury etc. Generally everyboby's bloody disappointed with the fact the Germans were a better side.

I can understand that. Still, basing my opinion on today's matches, I firmly believe that even without Blaszczykowski and with Golanski we can beat both Austria and Croatia. It's not gonna be easy, but let's just do it ;)

My team for Austria game:

Boruc - Golanski, Bak, Zewlakow, Wasilewski - Roger, Dudka, Lewandowski, Krzynowek, Zurawski - Smolarek

If Leo trusted Golanski, he should stick to this choice now. Lobodzinski wasn't bad, but he's less versatile than our other attacking players.

A win means it's all in our hands. A draw gives us hope unless Germany lose to Croatia. A loss means we're out unless Germany beat both Croatia and Austria by more than two goals.

Oh well... At least we're not the first team that got eliminated from the tournament :D

Before the final game, we theoretically still have a chance of progressing, that's some progress compared to recent tournaments ;) Plus we're gonna be the host nation of 2012, fantastic stuff :howler:
I expected a draw from Austria game, but then I thought Germany would beat Croatia and Poland - Croatia would be 'all or nothing' epic battle :(

Regardless of the fact that the ref's decision to award the penalty was ridiculous, we asked for that goal. We were a class better than Austria in the 2nd half, but when it's 1:0, you must assume that in last 10 minutes your opponent will have at least one good chance :(

We should've scored another one, instead of trying some stupid time wasting. Austria was really poor in the 2nd half. There was no need to defend as if they were Spain or France...

My rates (1-6)

Boruc - 5
Zewlakow - 3
Bak - 4
Jop 0 ;)
Wasilewski - 2
Krzynowek - 4
Lewandowski - 2
Dudka - 2
Saganowski - 4
Roger - 4
Smolarek - 3

Golanski - 3
Lobodzinski - should've been on earlier!
Murawski - too short

This time he wasn't the worst of the worst of the worst :D

Jop unchallenged.
