Man Gotta say Poland showed us a great football at the begining but they got tired and lost their chance to win the game. greece could have won on the second half.
An unfair expulsion to Greece and a fair one for Poland. It was a good game, not amazing but good enough, very exciting. Wish Poland had won. Hope Russia does a good campaing this year. (They had some pretty good campaings in the last euro and world cup but they never win )
My God Czech Republic were crushed lol if this is a sign of things to come then Russia will run away with this group
Poor refereeing the whole way. Shows why Spanish refs suck, but then again, this guy did give out the most red cards in La Liga this year. :P
Three atrocious decisions in the first half with two terrible yellows and then a non-penalty call. In the 2nd leg of Bayern vs Madrid at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo's cross to no one in particular accidentally collided with the defender's arm and he got a penalty out of it. If that was a penalty, then there was no way that Greece didn't deserve a penalty. Then, you can blame Greece for not finishing it; I mean, when he was taking the penalty, I was like, go left, because I just had this fear that it was going to be saved going right, and it totally was. Poor, poor penalty. I guess Robben's not the only bad penalty taker out there.
Although, given everything that happened, a 1-1 result was probably fair.
In terms of Russia vs the Czech Republic, I'd picked the Czech Republic to finish first and Russia to finish second in Group A, but my predictions seem a bit off after today. I knew that Russia had the better team, but I thought Cech would somehow inspire his team to glory in an effort to build on the CL glory, but like usual, the Czech Republic's defending was shoddy and Cech doesn't always go all out for the national team. I mean, to me, it looked like he didn't try all out, because after all, the cash he earns at Chelsea is more important than a Euro game. I'm being serious here. The Czech Republic isn't getting past the QFs, so...I was a bit disappointed that Russia added on two extra goals near the end, but that was all due to the poor defending.

Wow, take a look at this ref's record.
12 yellows and a straight red awarded in a single match.
The overall numbers of cards awarded, as you can see in the pic, is just staggering.
Banana and Armin didn't finish their brackets
What? I did it was giving some errors but I did it again and it was done

Oh Fuck only because I was gonna win?
I don't know which one to blamed Cech or poor defending. I'd say that Russia would come first in Group A, and then Poland second.
That is entertaining. I think my bracket's going downhill, but at least seven of my quarter finalists will probably be right.
Man I thought the rest should be filled after we knew who actually advanced
But my predictions will be spot on for sure.
isn't there a way to unlock it just this time?
At this stage, it looks like either Poland or Greece will be the second qualifier; however, they each only got one point, so it's very possible for Czech to still qualify.
I voted for Russia to end first in its group and Poland Second. I believe playing at home is always a major point in this kind of competition. Remember Korea in 2002 world cup? Portugal during Euro 2004?
I believe my prediction for Group A will be right.
For Group B I voted Germany 1st and Portugal 2nd. Well probably because I think Germany is the favorite to win as well as spain. And Portugal Because I lived there for 10 years and want to believe they can do it.
