[quote=“Mickey13, post:14, topic:3016”]I thought both teams played ridiculous. First 20 minutes of first half were promising for Poland, first 20 minutes of second half were promising for Greece, but overall both teams screwed up.
I have a feeling Russia (top quality team - they may win the whole championship surely) will beat Poland and Greece totally. As for Czech Republic we will see.[/quote]
Czech Republic can still be second in their group.
If the Russians keep playing like this, they will surely top the group, but Czech Republic left them a lot of space, they tried to push forward all the time after this early Russian goal. I don’t think the other two teams will do that. Then again, the Russians have enough attacking force to dismantle a defensive team (and an early goal might destroy all plans of the opponent).
Curious what will happen today in Group B, with two of the favourites, Germany and Holland playing the outsiders, Portugal and Danmark.
Everybody thinks Portugal is stronger than Danmark, but the Danes won the qualification group for this tournament, ending above Portugal (and they did the same for the last World Cup, if I’m not mistaken)
