Poles do not blame Polish soccer players for their defeat in the World Soccer Cup 2006 but coach Pawel Janas and the Polish Football Association (PFA), according to a survey ran by the ARC Market and Opinion polling institute.
As many as 70.2 percent of the respondents think the coach is to blame for the national team's failures during the World Cup, 46.8 percent mentioned the Polish Football Association and 38.2 percent believe that players are responsible for the defeat, ARC informed as quoting by the PAP news agency.
Almost 70 percent of the polled say the performance of the Polish national team was poor (including 40 percent who say it was very poor). Only 5 percent of the respondents liked it.
The survey was conducted by phone on a sample of 613 Poles between 15 and 65 years of age on June 20-28.
