Erich's new place where different things will happen, but still the center of the universe and the navel of the world

There is still hope!

Optimistic Austria fans before the match against Poland.
An injury-time penalty by Ivica Vastic earned Austria a dramatic 1-1 draw with Poland. Austria came out firing, should have been 3-0 up inside 20 minutes after Poland's ramshackle defence was repeatedly split wide open for Austrian players to run through, but couldn't convert one of these excellent opportunities. As wise people say: Goals you can't score you will receive!

In the other match of that day Croatia beat pre-tournament favorite Germany 2-1 to reach the quarterfinals at soccer's European Championship for the first time since its tournament debut in 1996.

So we are back to the crucial, brotherly rivalry Austria : Germany on Monday where both teams need to win to stay in the tournament.
