EURO2008: Austira Tie vs Poland, 1-1

Co-hosts Austria were given another chance for the Euro 2008 quarter-finals when Ivica Vastic scored a stoppage-time penalty versus Poland. The English referee ruled that Mariusz Lewandowski sent down Sebastian Proedl and substitute Vastic kicked the penalty past Artur Boruc. Boruc had earlier made a string of fantastic saves to keep Austria from scoring, with Martin Harnik wasting two great opportunities. Poland's only goal came when Roger Guerreiro converted a first-half cross from an offside position three yards out. It was a dramatic finish in Vienna and both sides' chances of qualifying for the quarter-finals remain very slim, though Vastic's dramatic goal does send Croatia through to the last eight. Videos of the goals below.

1-0 Roger Guerreiro 30"
