Euro 2012: Greece vs Czech Republic
The first game of the second round of games at the Euro 2012 Football Championships was between Greece and the Czech Republic. Greece managed a draw in their first game and the Czech Republic lost with big numbers to Russia. Both teams really needed a win and it was the Czechs who went straight for the Greek throat from the get go. Within three minutes the Czechs had scored and within another three minutes they had scored a second. The Greek defense was collapsing like the Greek economy. Somehow the Greeks managed to score a goal, after a major screw up by Czech goalkeeper Cech, but in the end it did not matter and the Czech earned their first three points of the tournament and llive to fight another day.
