Euro Cup 2012 – Czech Republic Vs GreecePosted by George
The match between Czech Republic and Greece turned out to be an electrifying one as the match saw some real action within the first 10 minutes itself. The result was Czech Republic scoring the first 2 goals in the 10 minutes period. Czech Republic Petr Jiracek scored the first goal after 2 minutes the game started. The second goal was scored after 6 minutes and this time it was Vaclav Pilar who score the second goal which saw the Greece team looking at the Czech in astonishment.
Greece tried to return the goal in the first half, but was well defended by the Czech defenders and they made sure that the score remained 2-0 in the first half. If Greece has to make their progress towards the next round in Euro Cup 2012,then they desperately need to win their match against Russia later in this group. Greek defense was really weak and we could see many times the Greek defense being cut open and the Czech Republic making the most out of it.
After trying many of their chances Greece managed to strike back in the 53rd minute through Gekas, who came in as a substitute replacing Fotakis. There was also allegations regarding the lack of game quality from both the sides and the refereeing also came under severe criticism.
In another group match Poland and Russia were held in a 1-1 draw with Dzagoev scoring for Russia in the 37th minute and Blaszczykowski scoring for Poland in the 57th minute.
