    June 12 - Portugal vs Greece and Spain vs Russia

    well the competition kicks off today. we can use this thread to talk about day 1 matches.....

    The 2 favourites should win. but im predicting Russia to take a shock early lead against spain, but a couple of late ones should be enough.

    what does everyone else think???

    Pretty much the same, there is a good chance that Russia will take a shock early lead but I don't think its going to happen.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Should be easy for the Spaniards and Portugese, but Portugal are actually my tips for the flops of the Tournament with the home pressure and the aging squad...

    My eyes are so bad now that I find it very difficult to separate an 'i' from an 'n' when they are typed together.

    Consequently, I'm going for a shock - Russia to lose to Spam.

    And the other game to be funny as well.

    hm... taking things a bit too far there i think Eddy .

    Spain should beat Russia but Greece might jsut surprise Portugal.

    Spain's only problem might be the experienced Russians pointing out soem flaws in their defence, don't think they have what it takes to win but I think some teams might want video footage if it does happen!

    seeing as though we are all tipping portugal and spain, its safe to go and put some money on the other 2 then!

    in all seriousness, if any group could see upsets its this one. Spain and portugal arent exactly famous for bringing their best football to major tournaments. Greece beat Spain in qualifying and Russia arent exactly the worst side.

    Portugal 0 v Greece 1 - Half Time

    7th Minute:

    GOAL - Karagounis gives the Greeks a shock lead with a superb low shot into the bottom right corner from the edge of the box to stun the home fans

    I reckon it will get silly before it ends. The guy who just got 'clipped' (known in the trade as 'missed') by Figo rolled over EIGHT times before Collina let him know that he was being ignored.

    And now Greece make it 2-0 from the spot

    Portugal 0 v Greece 2

    PENALTY: Ronaldo brings down Giourkas Seitaridis inside the box and Collina points to the spot...

    GOAL: Greece go 2-0 up with Angelos Basinas superbly converting from the penalty spot to leave Portugal with a real battle on their hands

    Ha Ha Ha, i hope the diving cheating girly wuss cries at the end. He couldn;t just take his earings out, no he'd look to manly, so he taped over them with bright white tape.

    And those boots! Ponce

    I enjoyed that game, well-refereed by Pierluigi Skeletor

    Good performance came from Art Deco for the Portuguese - but what on earth were they doing accepting a Jermaine Pennant from them before the game? ("Beware of Greeks bearing gifts". Everyone knows that).
