Poland fire Beenhakker after missing World Cup cut

The Polish Football Association has sacked Leo Beenhakker as coach of its national team after the side's poor showing in a loss to Slovenia that cost Poland a place in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"The decision is irrevocable. Coach Beenhakker ceases to be Polish national team coach," Grzegorz Lato, the president of Polish Football Association (PZPN) said in a television interview.

Poland's 3-0 defeat on Wednesday sparked outrage in Poland, with one tabloid newspaper telling readers the side had "humiliated us."

Former Poland striker Lato said Dutchman Beenhakker, who had coached the Polish side since 2006, would most likely be replaced by a Polish coach.
