A Great Occasion.

Bienvenido Bones Banez Jr

Last night we watched the Czech Republic play against Greece, the Greek team were playing without their two central defenders.

One was sent off in the first game against Poland, in my opinion the referee made a mistake, and the player got two yellow cards for playing the ball.

Which meant red when he got the second yellow card and that always means an instant dismissal from the game.

The other defender was badly injured and won't be taken any further part in the tournament, which is a shame as they really made the difference for the Greek team.

Without them the Greek team were noticeably less good, which the Czech team exploited by getting two quick goals in quick succession.

Then Petr Cech, the Czech teams goalkeeper made a crucial error, he ran out of his goal to catch a ball which he didn't catch.

However a nearby Greek player instantly buried it in the goal, to the delight of his teammates and the dismay of the Czech team.

Both sides tried to get additional goals but failed to achieve this aim, so the game ended 
Czech 2-Greece  1.

The next game was Russia versus Poland, there were fights before and after the game which needed police intervention.

The Russian fans were celebrating Russia's Day which caused a lot of upset amongst the Polish fans.

It was a very good game, in fact it was more of a battle than a game with neither side giving an inch.

The contest between Russia's Arshavin and Poland's brilliant attacking right back Piszczek promised to be fascinating.

The Polish side held their own against the Russians, who did not look so good in the first 15 minutes of the game, whereas the Polish team looked better than in the first game against Greece.

Sadly at 18 minutes into the game Polanski’s excellent goal was not allowed because it was offside, in the 41st minute Russia scored a goal.

Then it was half time after which both teams resumed the battle, in the 57th minute Poland scored, a wonderful goal from their captain Jakub Blaszczykowski.

At full time it was Poland 1-Russia 1 it was a highly enjoyable game with a draw being a fair result, now Russia need to get a draw with Greece on Saturday evening, while Poland must beat the Czech Republic.

That would be quite the occasion, judging by Poland's performance tonight they will be the favourites to win, imagine Poland playing Germany in the semi final, it could happen and it would be a great occasion.
