    Yeah, thought he looked so much more motivated than I've seen him since his first season in England

    Still looked exhausted after 10 minutes though.

    Infuriating really. Hope it adds a few numbers onto his value to be honest. Played a great game, but have doubts as to whether he could convert that into long term form in the Premiership. Would rather be shot of him than have him come back and play like that 5 times a year and spend the rest of the time performing well below average.

    Can see Greece sneaking 2nd place from this group actually. If they defend well against the Czechs in their next game I can see them sneaking a goal and edging it 1-0. Russia will undoubtedly be through, and probably be guaranteed top spot, by the time they have to play them, so could see them resting a few players and Greece getting a draw.

    I suspect the missed penalty will cost them though. Did you see their player celebrating like they'd won the whole tournament when they were awarded it though? Unfortunately, TV didn't show his reaction when it was saved.

    Well let's see...

    Doesn't help them that the Spanish ref and UEFA's automatic suspension rules denied them a working centre-back pairing today, either.

    True, but imo even before the send-off last match he looked hopelessly out of his depth.

    Feel a bit sorry for Greece. Had shocking starts to both games, conceded 3 really crap goals, but then once they settled in they've looked like a reasonable side. Not really troubled in either game after they've got it together and been unfortunate with disallowed goals. If they had one or two decent attacking players they'd do quite reasonably I suspect.

    Lol at Roy Keane telling the players not to get too rash and get sent off.

    And another lol at Gareth Southgate being surprised there is violence before a russia v poland match. What planet are you living on pal?

    Whoever scheduled this fixture to be in Warsaw is an insane genius.

    Gotta love the Soviet Russian anthem. So martial and austere.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
