Euro 2012: Czech Republic vs Poland
The time of the final group games has arrived and it's do or die for most teams. The two games in each group kick off at the same time, so no team has an advantage of time or knowledge. In group A the Czech Republic faced Poland and Greece faced Russia and no team was certain of going through yet. Poland needed a win and the Czech Republic needed a draw to progress. In was a fun game to watch, without many footballing highlights I might add, and it was the Czech Republic who came out on top when Jiracek scored deep into the second half. Poland tried, but the pressure might have been too much for them and one of the host nations has left the tournament.
