Ukraine Blames Frogs For Loss

KIEV, Ukraine -- Frogs croaking near the team hotel in Potsdam contributed to Ukraine's crushing World Cup defeat by Spain, players told the Ukrainian media on Thursday.

The squad didn't get a wink of sleep the night before Wednesday's game, defender Vladislav Vashchuk was quoted as saying by the daily Donbass.

Some players were so annoyed they threatened to go and put a stop to the offending noise, the newspaper reported.

Vashchuk was red-carded in the match, which Ukraine lost 4-0, prompting coach Oleg Blokin to criticise his players' "unwillingness to fight."
