Ukraine’s defender Vladislav Vashchuk said that their humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Spain was not the fault of the players – but was down to the frogs. “Because of the frogs’ croaking we hardly got a wink of sleep,” he told the today’s papers. Aha! Now we know what we should do to beat them: tell Saudi fans in Germany to go and through some (many?) frogs outside the Ukranian team’s hotel :-) German newspapers was not impressed at all by the players’ complaints, and described them as the worst World Cup excuse of all time.
