Euro 2012 - Fifth Day

The group A EURO 2012 games of today were played in Poland.

First, Greece played The Czech Republic in Wroclaw. The Czech Republic started very fast and scored 2 goals right away and the score remained that way till half time. Then Greece came back vengeful in the second half and scored a 'mercy' goal due to a massive mistake made by the Czech goalkeeper.

The final score of 2-1 for the Czech Republic appears fair. Greece must win their last game if they want to play in the elimination round. Even if they win, it is not certain that Greece will get through. The Czech Republic needs at least a tie in their last game against the co-hosts, Poland, to get through.

The second game of group A was played in Warsaw. Russia scored the first goal after a series of nice/fast passing and the game was 1-0 at half time.

At the start of the second half Poland game back roaring and scored a beautiful goal after a monumental error made by Arshavin at the other end.

Final score of the game: 1-1. This result keeps both teams' chances alive to qualify for the elimination stage. Russia seemed more deserving to win this game than Poland, no doubt.
