    Poland v the Czechs here. Can't imagine the Soviets will have too much bother v Greece.

    My thoughts, ready to switch if need be though.

    Open start here, I've said that a lot this tournament. Germany-Portugal the only stinker for mine, suppose our game v France may have been dull for neutrals.

    Poland all over them, should be at least one up.

    Hopefully bring the Czechs out of themselves a bit; out as it stands.

    Switched over to Greece-Russia, Karagounis has just been booked for a dive but it was a stonewall pen. Bloody hell.

    Greece good value for the lead from what I've seen and as I type theyve just hit the woodwork with a cracking free kick. And Russia lucky not to be down to ten men, Dzagoev just put in a nasty challenge that I've seen men walk for.

    The separation criteria are pretty strange. Greece just went ahead of Russia because the Czechs scored. I understand how it works but it's pretty quirky.

    Wonderfully taken goal for the Czechs. If they & Greece win does that put Russia out?

    Both Greece and Russia will have 4 points, presume it'll be on results between the teams?

    Beeb confirms it's the case as I type...

    Wouldn't be sad to see Russia to go out because, well, they're Russia but after their opening game I expected them to go a long way. Haven't looked as good since, though.

    Nazi, tbh.

    If things stay as they are the Czechs'll top the group with a negative goal diff. Can't have happened too often. Cameroon in 1990 is only other time I can think of.

    Yeah, pretty unusual. Reminds me of the 04-05 English season when Everton and Brentford finished 4th in their respective divisions with -1 goal difference.

    Incredible. Who would have thought these two would get through after the opening games.

    More like the Arsenal Arshavin tonight and it showed throughout the team.
