Poor Poland

Damn, you have to feel sorry for Poland. They just got knocked out of the World Cup with a 91st minute goal for Germany. With 30 seconds of normal time to go Germany hit the cross bar and then hit it again from the rebound. At that stage I thought the Polish goal keeper had earned a great draw for his team. Then a door opens for the German forward Oliver Neuville in the 91st minute and that was the end for Poland.

In fairness, they can't have any complaints. It could have been 4:0.

Even if they nicked a draw, they would have been as good as out. Keeper did well though.

Yeah, the better team won, but Poland were so close to a draw and when Germany hit the cross bar twice in 5 seconds I was sure lady luck was with Poland.

That's really a shame. I watched part of that match and felt that their goalie did a tremendous job.
