FT Poland 1 Greece 1! Under 2 = Void. Greece was surprised early on by Poland's right flank and suffered the goal. Somehow they managed to tie the game in the second half and it was pretty clear that Poland doesn't have the offensive talent to play against laid back teams like Greece.

SINGLE DIME 3-2
DOUBLE DIME 2-1
FT: Russia 4 Czech Republic 1! The Czechs were totally outclassed in this contest... Premium Play was an easy winner:
Euro 2012 - Group A - Russia vs Czech Republic***TOP PLAY***I’ve watched Russia's last friendly match against Italy and they surely impressed me. They won by 3-0 in Italy with all the three goals being scored in the second half, but they missed several chances to score in the first half as well.The strongest link of Russia is really their chemistry. In my opinion, only Spain has a better team chemistry than Russia and this can hardly be a surprise because of their starting lineup. They will likely use 6 of the 11 players from the same club (Zenit), while 4 of them play in CSKA Moscow, with the remaining player (Zhirkov) being a former CSKA player. So, this is more a traditional club than a national team! Last but not least, their national head coach Dick Advocaat is a former Zenit coach...Russia plays with an attractive offensive style of football supported by two offensive minded wing backs. They form two triangle formations on the midfield and on the front and all the players from those formations rotate perfectly well. That’s why they are hard to stop and their team chemistry is a key word to describe this team. They lack a real superstar player and their center back duo - Berezutski & Ignashevich are a bit slow as a unit. However, this Russian team is in my opinion way better than any other team in the group A.On the other side, the Czech Republic is far away from the team they were in the last decade. They have problems to create chances to score because they lack creativity on the midfield. Only Thomas Rosicky is capable of creating something offensively and he is coming from an injury. He will reportedly play in this contest, but I doubt that he will be 100% fit as he never had a good stamina.Their two wing back players are offensive minded and this is in my opinion will hurt the Czechs: these two players are constantly involved in long sprints from the sides and this will open some space behind them that will be explored by the Russians. Czech Republic has a great goalkeeper and a decent defensive back 4 formation, but it’s not enough against a team like Russia. I expect Russia to score the first goal and then with the Czech Republic looking forward to tie the game, Russia will have multiple chances to score in transition.
For today I've found value in the first game of the day, likely we will have one play later for the Portugal vs Germany game, back later...
The Dutch team is one of the favorites to win the tournament and they just can’t afford to not win today because their next 2 games will be against Germany and Portugal, so a bad start will put them an absurd pressure to win the next two tough matches.
Denmark comes into the tournament without their first choice goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen available. They have a good team and their system is similar to the Dutch team: they play with a back four formation, two strong defensive minded holder plays, a playmaker and 3 players on the front. The problem is that their defensive unit is prone to commit mistakes while their offensive players are easily outclassed by the Dutch stars.
I say 3-1 Netherlands. Dutch might be a bit suspect on the counter but they should control the play and pressure the Danes all game.
First play for today, starts in 20 minutes:
Some breaking news for this contest: Spain’s coach Del Bosque decided to not start Fernando Torres and Spain will play without using a single striker. Their formation will be a bizarre 4-6-0 in which Busquets, Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta, Silva and Fabregas will rotate, dominate the ball and look for some quick triangulations to penetrate and score.
Thanks Andre, Good Luck today.. Let's get this Spain game :)
Really like the second game of the day:
Croatia had an excellent team in 2008, but this version is far away from the quality displayed in the previous competition. They lost due to retirement their best defensive midfielder Niko Kovac who has never really been decently replaced and their best player Lukas Modric is now playing in a less offensive position in comparison with his former position: a pure playmaker behind the front line.
Spain vs Italy was the best game of the tournament so far. Still wondering why in the hell Del Bosque keep giving Fernando Torres the nod at the striker position ahead of Fernando Llorente...Torres was Torres... he missed some great chances
