EURO 2012 started - level 3, A12

The European Football Championship started yesterday with matches in Group A. Many people say that this is by far the easiest group and they expected boring defending style games.

What a surprise! The matches were so exciting with 7 goals scored altogether. Hosts Poland played a fantastic first half against Greece. They were one goal up and looked liked winning the game easily. However, Greeks didn’t give up, equalized and could win if they didn’t miss a penalty.

The second match with Russia against the Czech Republic was even more entertaining. The Russian team crashed the Czechs 4-1 and the score could be even higher. Both teams played a very open game and it was a fantastic match to watch for all football fans but the Czechs.

You can see the goals from the second match in the video.
