Koumas rails at 'unfair' booking
Jason Koumas must now sit out Wednesday's trip to face Germany
Jason Koumas must now sit out Wednesday's trip to face Germany
Wales hero Jason Koumas was furious to be banned for Wednesday's trip to Germany after being booked in the 2-2 draw with the Republic of Ireland.

Koumas headed Wales ahead in Cardiff and stroked home the late penalty that earned a point, but was shown a yellow card for an alleged dive.

"I don't know why I've been booked because I was definitely caught. It was very disappointing," Koumas said.

"You are happy not to lose a game but the goals we conceded were poor."

After Koumas' opener, heading back across goal from Joe Ledley's left-wing cross, Robbie Keane levelled and Kevin Doyle put the Irish ahead.

But Wigan midfielder Koumas dispatched a late penalty for a share of the spoils after David Cotterill was brought down.

"It was tough after they scored, but credit to the young lads who've come in and did well to get a draw in the end," Koumas added.

Wales now travel to Frankfurt for their final Euro 2008 qualifiying Group D match on Wednesday.

But Wales will go without Koumas, who was carrying a booking from last March's 3-0 win over San Marino and must now sit out the next match.
