First Euro 2012 match was a good one.

Poland 1-1 Greece

Both goals were a result of keeper errors that each team was able to capitalize on. However, Poland's goal was f**king textbook! Snap that header on the ground; skipped headers have a significantly higher rate of success. If he put-it-on-a-rope at head-level the keeper would have stopped it.



EDIT: And I finally found a highlight reel of the Russia/Czech match.

Russia 4-1 Czech Republic

Not bad. The Ruskies 3rd and 4th goals were a bit soft. Granted they were cracker shots but directly at the keeper who apparently has holes in his hands

Holy Cheesewheel !! Holland looses. Robben is a world class player, until he has to finish like WC 2010 final, CL final. Bad way to start in the Group of Death.
Germany bored the Portugese to death and then struck but defended the onslaught well. But 3 points is 3 points.

Great soccer Saturday - watched both DEN-NED and POR-GER matches, great level of play. Was brewing yesterday on the patio with the audio of the SPA-ITA match. Sounded great - need to find a highlight vid.

It must be tough for Guiseppi Rossi to sit in the studio instead of playing. They asked him in the studio about his decision to go Italian instead of US - I think the answers were good - but one always wonders about how the US game will improve if the good players go to the more established leagues - and national teams.

This! Seriously, it drives me crazy when there is a new young star in MLS and everybody says "he'll do great in Europe."

F**k that noise.

"fraid that's just something some leagues have to live with. Players only have short careers and need to follow the money and the experience of higher levels. It will get better over time. Ya just can't rush these things.
