Euro 2012: Matchday Nine (Group A)


Poland fans have realized a dream in watching their country host the European Championships, and their national team isn't ready to see that dream end.

The Polish national team has its fate in its own hands, with a win today against the Czech Republic securing a place in the knockout rounds. The Poles have settled for two draws in the first two matches, but need a victory today to keep going.

Russia is in control of the group, and can clinch first place with a victory against underdog Greece. The Greeks can turn the group on its head though, with a victory catapulting them ahead of the Russians. Beating Russia won't be easy, especially not with an attack that has produced five goals through two matches.

Here is the viewing schedule for today's Euro 2012 matches:

2:45pm - ESPN/ - Poland vs. Czech Republic

2:45pm - ESPN2/ - Russia vs. Greece

    I would rather watch Czech – Poland, but I cannot take any more of Taylor Twellman’s voice.

  2. Citronomics says:

    Czech v Poland starting lively with So far looks like Poland going with build up and Czech looking to stay compact and pump long balls to Baros.

  3. Citronomics says:

    *with several quality chances by Poland*

  4. NE Matt says:

    So Milan Baros is like Geoff Cameron’s twin brother

  5. Jort says:

    Omg Greece was just robbed by the officials. This is pathetic. Wow official got that so wrong I’m just furious.

  6. Mike says:

    Wow if you told me someone was fixing matches against Greece I wouldn’t hesitate in believing that.

    This is frankly pathetic.

  7. Mike says:

    I would absolutely believe that.

    Officiating has been great so far except for both Greece games and both times Greece has been horribly misdone.

  8. NE Matt says:

    Cheaters never win. Looks like Greece will advance along withs the Czechs

  9. Mike says:

    Cinderella has arrived. They’ve overcome so much already. It’s all house money at this point.

  10. Tony in Quakeland says:

    That was unbelievable…

  11. SD says:

    can somebody explain how greece went through. russia has better goal differential. is that not the tie breaker? thanks

  12. Mike says:

    Head to head is the first tie breaker in Euro 2012.

  13. Haydenjo says:

    Tie breaker in euro is head to head first

  14. oh yeah says:

    That’s so stupid they are always changing the rules

  15. Haydenjo says:

    Ballack and lawless are brutal with the analysis

  16. Mike says:

    Alexi Lalas is ridiculous. A throw in is not a set piece. I mean seriously?

  17. Haydenjo says:

    Ballack can’t speak English and lawless isn’t very smart

  18. Haydenjo says:

    Good games can’t wait til tomorrow

  19. SD says:


  20. Kevin_amold says:

    And Alexi is not Lucy’s brother….

  21. Kevin_amold says:

    As I research, I see that Lawless is her married name. Failure on my part…

  22. Rory says:

    Yeah, her maiden name is Lalas. Saved money on monogrammed pj’s she already had and saved time by not having to re-record her voicemail greeting.

  23. RK says:

    I can’t believe that bad Greek team made it through. Poland really blew it when they couldn’t put them away in the first match.

  24. Tdub says:

    good riddance to the Russians and their thuggish fans

  25. Wm. says:

    Greece is not pretty when they play, but they got the job done. If they face Germany in the Q’s does it become a grudge match over austerity measures and the Euro?
