Good evening. Welcome to live coverage of Euro 2012. Eight days

0:00:380:00:48
0:00:480:01:14

in and there is plenty to talk lead!

0:01:140:01:24
0:01:240:01:24

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

0:01:240:02:20

It is turning out to be a tournament to remember and, of

0:02:200:02:24

course, there is the added bonus of England still being in it. I hope

0:02:240:02:28

you have recovered from last night. As for this evening, it is all

0:02:280:02:33

about Group A. In a two of four and so qualify. Our focus is on Greece

0:02:330:02:38

against Russia, which will be analysed by Robbie Savage and Lee

0:02:380:02:43

Dixon. Robbie, 16 games, 46 goals. It has got off to a Grace start.

0:02:430:02:48

has been brilliant. We have seen different systems, we have seen the

0:02:490:02:52

emergence of new players and England coming back. I think it has

0:02:520:02:57

been fantastic. As I mentioned, England are very much in the hunt.

0:02:570:03:01

Definitely. Low expectations at the start of the tournament but as soon

0:03:010:03:06

as the tournament got going, everyone started to come alive.

0:03:060:03:12

They're thinking, can we get to the quarters? We are starting talking

0:03:120:03:18

in the street, saying that we have a chance. That we need to temper

0:03:180:03:21

those expectations are. It was a great comeback yesterday but there

0:03:210:03:24

is still a lot of work to be done. We got accused of being down on

0:03:240:03:27

England last night but I think it was just being realistic. It did

0:03:270:03:31

not play great but they came back and there were bits of it that were

0:03:310:03:35

good and other bits that were not. We have to make sure we keep

0:03:350:03:38

everybody level-headed. The best person for that is Roy Hodgson. He

0:03:380:03:44

will sort them out. We will talk more about England later but as it

0:03:440:03:47

is so tight in Group A, we will talk through the various

0:03:470:03:51

permutations involved shortly. To put it simply, a win for Greece or

0:03:510:03:56

Russia will be enough to see them qualify. It is safe to say that

0:03:560:04:04

they have had contrasting fortunes so far.

0:04:040:04:08

Greece have he -- torrid time. They conceded early against Poland and

0:04:080:04:12

were partially reduced to 10 men. They missed a penalty and an

0:04:120:04:16

They missed a penalty and an equaliser. In-game two, six minutes

0:04:160:04:20

of defensive madness cost them against the Czech Republic. Then

0:04:200:04:23

they had a goal ruled out and despite being handed a gift from

0:04:230:04:27

Petr Cech, they could not force an equaliser. Winning today will see

0:04:270:04:32

them through to the quarter-finals. Russia enjoyed a goal rush in their

0:04:320:04:38

opener against the Czech Republic. A 4-1 win was impressive. Against

0:04:380:04:45

Poland, Dzagoev scored again. A point today will be enough to see

0:04:450:04:55
0:04:550:04:55

Dick Advocaat's men threw. They are the favourites to do just that.

0:04:550:05:00

This is the tricky bit. Are you paying attention? The qualifying

0:05:000:05:03

criteria for to Champions League model rather than the one used at

0:05:030:05:06

the World Cup. Group standings are decided by points and then head to

0:05:060:05:10

head. Bennett is goal difference. Any team who wins today will go

0:05:100:05:14

through. Paul London Greece will be eliminated if they fail to win

0:05:140:05:19

their games. Russia need only one point to be sure of qualification.

0:05:190:05:24

Drawing will be enough for cheques unless Greece beat Russia. -- for

0:05:240:05:30

the Czech Republic. The teams arrived an hour and a

0:05:300:05:35

half ago. It is pretty simple. Greece have to win. Russia needed

0:05:350:05:42

one solitary point. I have seen this group all the way through and

0:05:420:05:46

Greece are very, very poor. Their defending at times has been

0:05:460:05:56
0:05:560:06:01

horrific. I cannot see them getting through. Russia, they were there

0:06:010:06:07

strong team in that opening game. What do you think? Greece could

0:06:080:06:10

have won that first game against Poland, with 10 men and that

0:06:100:06:15

penalty. This tournament will throw up of results. I had been impressed

0:06:150:06:19

with Russia. They had been strong and they should be to this team

0:06:190:06:24

and they should be to this team quite easily. -- they should be to

0:06:240:06:29

this Greece team. Let us look at Russia. They started so well. That

0:06:290:06:33

impressive win over the Czech Republic, then they drew 1-1 in a

0:06:330:06:38

cracker against Poland. Who has impressed you? I tend to gravitate

0:06:380:06:43

towards Arsenal players, like Arshavin. He has been a

0:06:430:06:46

disappointment at the Emirates. Many supporters are pleased that he

0:06:460:06:51

might be leaving the club. But he is a great talent and he just needs

0:06:510:06:54

to get a place where he feels that he is loved. Certainly, in the

0:06:540:06:58

national side, he feels that Lovell. He went in and out of the team at

0:06:580:07:06

Arsenal and did not produce his best stuff, but... He could be

0:07:060:07:13

replaced by Dzagoev, Iowa who is a real find. -- who is a real find.

0:07:130:07:19

He has been very good. He is one booking away from missing the

0:07:190:07:23

quarter-final. He has been very good. He has taken three goals, the

0:07:230:07:26

first one I header. It was a great first one I header. It was a great

0:07:260:07:32

ball in from Arsharvin. That is what he can do. He is taking a

0:07:320:07:36

journeyman by storm. He gets a rebound off the post and he has

0:07:360:07:42

surprised a few. 150-1 for top goalscorer, down to 10-1. If they

0:07:420:07:45

stay in the tournament, there will be few people making some money.

0:07:450:07:48

You can see why: The future of You can see why: The future of

0:07:480:07:51

Russian football. He plays on the right hand side of the front three.

0:07:510:07:58

He gets a lot of pockets in there, he gets the shot away. He gets

0:07:580:08:02

little breaks of pace. That gets him away from the defenders. As for

0:08:020:08:07

Greece, Robbie, you have seen them throughout the group, there are a

0:08:070:08:16

few changes, notably at left-back. That is hardly surprising.

0:08:160:08:18

That is hardly surprising. We can pick up 10 or 15

0:08:180:08:21

opportunities of them being in the wrong place. All these goals are

0:08:210:08:24

going to come against the opposition. Look where they come

0:08:240:08:29

from, the same area. He is known as an attacking full-back, and there

0:08:290:08:33

is no kidding without one. Every time, he is chasing back, he is in

0:08:330:08:41

the wrong position. The player coming Into Night has only got six

0:08:410:08:51
0:08:510:08:53

packs, -- has not got a much experience. I think the attacking

0:08:530:09:00

threat of the front three in Russia, they are a danger. I'm going for a

0:09:000:09:03

rush of victory. I cannot see anything else. Let's hope that it

0:09:030:09:09

is tight for longer. Let's hope we get a decent game. 4-4 at half-

0:09:090:09:14

time! It is all to play for. Don't worry, we will keep you updated

0:09:140:09:19

with the situation in the other group games in the Czech Republic

0:09:190:09:22

and Poland. But for now, sit back and settle down for Greece against

0:12:260:12:29

Greece and Russia, meeting for the third successive tournament with

0:12:290:12:35

Russia having come out on top in group games in both 2004 and 2008.

0:12:350:12:39

They need just a point to guarantee a quarter-final place while Greece

0:12:390:12:44

simply have to win or they will be out of this competition by tonight.

0:12:440:12:47

Russia could still go through even with the feed provided the Czech

0:12:470:12:51

Republic and Poland game ends in a draw and they do not lose by six

0:12:510:12:55

goals. But I think they will want to win with the probability of

0:12:550:12:59

Germany in wait in the last eight. Greece make four changes for this

0:12:590:13:09
0:13:090:13:13

one. Papastathopoulos is in central defence after a one-match ban. An

0:13:130:13:18

Gekas start up front. He came off the bench to score in the last game.

0:13:180:13:25

The captain wins his 120 of cap, equalling the national record.

0:13:250:13:32

-- 120th cap. The referees and Sweden. -- the referee is from

0:13:320:13:36

Sweden. He took in charge over Germany's win in the Ukraine. This

0:13:370:13:46
0:13:470:13:53

letting the game flow. The Russian manager likes to stick with a

0:13:530:13:57

settled side but he has been forced to one change because one player is

0:13:570:14:07
0:14:070:14:13

unwell. Kerzhakov has misfired so far in attack but the manager has

0:14:130:14:23
0:14:230:14:29

confidence. Pavlyuchenko was on the to law-making. Among the

0:14:300:14:39
0:14:400:14:41

substitutes for Greece, fog alongside Pavlyuchenko, Pogrebnyak,

0:14:410:14:50

who made a positive impression at Fulham last season. The Greek coach

0:14:500:14:54

has had one or two decisions to make, notably over who to play in

0:14:540:15:04
0:15:040:15:10

out of the group is the absolute minimum expected by over 150

0:15:100:15:17

million Russian people. The National Stadium in Warsaw is

0:15:170:15:21

normally the focal point of attack -- helicopter shots and news

0:15:210:15:28

backgrounds, but all Polish eyes are watching their game. Greece get

0:15:280:15:38

under way. Mark Bright is alongside me in the commentary position. Are

0:15:380:15:42

you surprised, having seen the first half performance in the

0:15:420:15:46

opening match against Poland, that Greece are still in with a chance

0:15:460:15:50

of getting out of the group? They played well in the second half

0:15:500:15:54

when they were down to ten men there, they do not create enough

0:15:540:15:58

and score enough, and I think they have beaten Russia once in the last

0:15:580:16:04

10 meetings, and has scored one goal in their last seven games, so

0:16:040:16:09

it will be a very tall order if Russia's call, so they will have to

0:16:090:16:14

score more than one goal, which will be very hard for them. They

0:16:140:16:20

are bottom-of-the-table, but they can still go through.

0:16:200:16:26

Russia started so well with the 4-1 win over the Czech Republic, but I

0:16:260:16:30

took -- thought they were struggling a bit against Poland.

0:16:300:16:40
0:16:400:17:07

Arshavin with the miskick, and the goalkeeper does well.

0:17:070:17:10

The goalkeeper here was first dressed in the qualifiers, and is

0:17:100:17:14

regarded by many pundits as the best of the Greek goalkeepers, but

0:17:140:17:19

he missed most of the season with a knee injury, was out from September

0:17:190:17:24

until March, and was then sent off in his comeback game for Olympiacos,

0:17:240:17:29

so he only played in their last game of the season. He has his

0:17:290:17:34

chance now following the injury picked up by Kostas Chalkias, who

0:17:340:17:44
0:17:440:17:57

goals in Scotland this past season, only once since the turn of the

0:17:570:18:02

year. The he is not a prolific at international level either, just

0:18:020:18:06

seven goals. But he works hard and put himself

0:18:060:18:12

about. Greece where they have to go and

0:18:130:18:18

try and win the game. Salpingidis was very lively against Poland

0:18:180:18:28
0:18:280:18:31

after coming off the bench. He scored the goal. Yes, lively,

0:18:310:18:36

and if the two strikers play, they can attack defenders and go past

0:18:360:18:46
0:18:460:19:00

for the first game. He is a very promising player,

0:19:000:19:10
0:19:100:19:25

his cruciate ligament in April, and that is why he he has been a

0:19:250:19:31

struggling to get into the team in this tournament.

0:19:310:19:40

A journalist said they saw an inquest into Holebas, by the BBC,

0:19:400:19:50
0:19:500:20:04

and that is why he is playing -- national record with his 120 of

0:20:040:20:14
0:20:140:20:14

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

0:20:140:21:04

A swing of the arm from the goalkeeper took it away from the

0:21:040:21:11

net. Great ball into the near post, and

0:21:110:21:15

just touched, it looks as if it is going in at the far post. No one

0:21:150:21:25
0:21:250:21:43

picked up the run. there, and they have only conceded

0:21:430:21:52

four goals in qualification. Gekas went down there along with Anyukov,

0:21:520:21:58

the right-back for Russia. A clash of heads there. Oh, dear!

0:21:580:22:06

It was a genuine attempt to play the ball.

0:22:060:22:15

He nearly headed Anyukov! Gekas started the first match, but

0:22:150:22:19

had to settle for a place on the bench in the last game. He was

0:22:190:22:23

gifted a goal by Petr Cech in the game against the Czech Republic.

0:22:230:22:27

I thought he should have started, he was busy, he put defenders under

0:22:270:22:33

pressure and run in -- than in the channel's behind.

0:22:330:22:38

Anyukov looks as if he is struggling.

0:22:380:22:46

The top of the head is the hardest part.

0:22:460:22:50

Anyukov is still recovering after that bank to the head, and we are

0:22:500:22:54

seven minutes in, and at this stage of the last match, Greece were

0:22:540:23:00

trailing 2-0, so that is an improvement!

0:23:000:23:04

They have taken the game to Russia. They are taking their time over set

0:23:040:23:13

pieces, and setting themselves up and try to get the delivery right.

0:23:130:23:16

This rushing team is so experienced. Anyukov is one of seven players

0:23:160:23:23

from St Petersburg. He played all the matches in the European

0:23:230:23:27

Championship four years ago. He has just won the European -- the

0:23:270:23:35

Russian league, and he has also won the UEFA Cup.

0:23:350:23:39

They won the league by 11 or 12 points, it was really easy for St

0:23:390:23:46

Petersburg. Anyukov is not yet on the field, so

0:23:460:23:50

Russia are down to ten men at the moment. He should be back any

0:23:500:23:55

moment now. With a clash of heads, you can last

0:23:550:24:05

a few minutes, but then... That was a decent Paulin looking

0:24:050:24:15
0:24:150:24:23

for Salpingidis. -- decent ball in unbeaten run, they have not blessed

0:24:230:24:28

-- not lost since February last year, 1-0 in a friendly to Iran.

0:24:280:24:33

There was a 3-0 victory against Italy the week before the big kick-

0:24:330:24:41

off here. Some people wondered whether Kerzhakov would take his

0:24:410:24:45

place -- keeps his place in the team. The coach thinks he will be

0:24:450:24:48

fine, despite the chances he has missed.

0:24:480:24:53

Things have not fallen his way. With the matter of chances he has

0:24:530:25:03
0:25:030:25:05

had, you expected to score at any time. -- the amount of chances.

0:25:050:25:09

Pavlyuchenko's goalscoring record is excellent, but he is on the

0:25:090:25:16

bench. Great save their from Arshavin.

0:25:160:25:26
0:25:260:25:34

Sifakis is in the right place at between Poland and the Czech

0:25:340:25:44
0:25:440:26:08

and Arshavin get his toe on it. Those sort of touches going,

0:26:080:26:18
0:26:180:26:18

because it just drops down. He got in front of Torosidis. It is a slow

0:26:180:26:23

start to the game, and I suppose for Russia, they are sitting

0:26:230:26:28

comfortably. It has been a hot day, and it is a

0:26:280:26:33

humid atmosphere in the stadium. Bright blue sky throughout the day,

0:26:330:26:43
0:26:430:26:58

getting that one anywhere near the goal.

0:26:580:27:07

They took it quickly, caught some people out. The joint leading

0:27:070:27:16

goalscorer in the tournament, Dzagoev, blazes it over.

0:27:160:27:21

Sadleir, who has scored three goals already, went into the competition

0:27:210:27:25

on the back of his worst Russian top-flight campaign in terms of

0:27:250:27:31

goals, he scored only five in 31 League appearances for CSKA Moscow.

0:27:310:27:41
0:27:410:27:42

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

0:27:420:28:23

behind that shocked. The ball comes down to him, he strikes it really

0:28:230:28:30

well, it is bending away from the target. Really close. It will not

0:28:300:28:36

be long before he gets one! He has been criticised for some

0:28:360:28:39

missed opportunities, Kerzhakov, but I do not think anyone will

0:28:390:28:44

complain about bad. No, Nepalis sitting up nicely. That

0:28:440:28:50

was a good opportunity, he is good with both feet. He has not shown

0:28:500:29:00
0:29:000:29:10

the composure in front of goal that he could chew their. He did not

0:29:100:29:17

have any help. A little bit of a stretch their

0:29:170:29:26

four Malafeev! More of a stretch that he expected!

0:29:260:29:31

We have seen it things like that going the back of the net before,

0:29:310:29:38

it skipped off the surface. Russia need to get their tempo going,

0:29:380:29:48
0:29:480:30:07

because it is all too easy at the there. It feels as though he's been

0:30:070:30:12

play fogt Greek national side forever almost. But he missed the

0:30:120:30:16

biggest game of all, the final in 2004, suspended. He did. Great

0:30:160:30:21

shame after all the hard work getting there.

0:30:210:30:25

Mostly used as a substitute by his club these days.

0:30:250:30:35
0:30:350:30:42

Still very much a starter for the third -- their third of the match

0:30:420:30:52
0:30:520:30:52

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

0:30:520:31:39

the very last moment by Katsouranis. Great counter-attacking football

0:31:390:31:49
0:31:490:32:00

there. Good ball from Arshad. This interception there, before the ball

0:32:000:32:08

fell at the feel of Dzagoev. There's something he doesn't like

0:32:080:32:14

inside the six-yard box. That's Glushakov riding on the goalkeeper.

0:32:140:32:19

As I said, before the referee always does this, a bit of shirt

0:32:190:32:23

tugging goes on at the corner. He pulls the players to him and says

0:32:230:32:27

right, none of that. They go back in position and it carries on. I

0:32:270:32:37
0:32:370:32:37

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

0:32:370:33:18

don't know why they do it. It's throw. Gekas there throwing his

0:33:180:33:22

arms in the air in despair. Samaras made a run to the near post and

0:33:220:33:30

pulled out to the far, Gekas played it in there. More relaxed

0:33:300:33:33

atmosphere for this match than the game the other night between Russia

0:33:330:33:43
0:33:430:34:18

poor, look at that. He gives the ball away. The defence are back

0:34:180:34:28
0:34:280:34:42

Greece go gung ho and try to get a goal. I think they'll leave it to

0:34:430:34:46

the last 25 minutes, keep it tight, not concede and go for the goal to

0:34:460:34:56
0:34:560:35:22

there from Samaras. You're being closed down rapidly. He was.

0:35:220:35:29

Better play from Russia. More insiesive passing. That's Maniatis

0:35:290:35:39
0:35:390:35:58

who is down for Greece. Arshavin is him, you're in.

0:35:580:36:02

Greece have lost the last four matches they've played against

0:36:020:36:08

Russia. They last beat them in a World Cup qualifier ahead of USA

0:36:080:36:15

'94, by 1-0 in Athens. They waited a little while, two countries

0:36:150:36:20

played each other last year, ending in a 1-1 draw.

0:36:200:36:30
0:36:300:36:33

between the Czech Republic and Poland. We haven't come this far to

0:36:330:36:38

have a 0-0 draw. Law of averages there'll be one in the end.

0:36:380:36:41

Hopefully not tonight. Little reminder of the situation as it

0:36:410:36:47

stands in Group A at the moment, if it stays like this, Russia will top

0:36:470:36:50

the group with five points and the Czech Republic will finish in

0:36:500:37:00
0:37:000:37:11

dangerous as the minutes go by as we head to the mid-way point.

0:37:110:37:15

They're picking up the ball around the midfield area and driving at

0:37:150:37:25
0:37:250:38:03

the defence. Greece have to take foot than in the opening minutes of

0:38:030:38:13
0:38:130:38:35

whether anything dropped his way. Samaras is on the left, Salpingidis

0:38:350:38:39

on the right, they've ended up, it's like a back five now. That's

0:38:390:38:49
0:38:490:38:54

giving them more time and more debut last year. He's got a decent

0:38:540:38:58

shot on him as well. Denisov named the player of the season by the

0:38:580:39:01

Russian football union, one of the key players in the half of their

0:39:010:39:11
0:39:110:39:25

They need a point to guarantee going through. The reality is they

0:39:250:39:28

could lose the game and go through, depending on the result in the

0:39:280:39:37

other match. The coach there and before him was

0:39:370:39:42

Gus Hidink. A player said they are similar, very strong men. There was

0:39:420:39:47

a lot of love for Hidink when he was coach.

0:39:470:39:57
0:39:570:40:09

Russia start to try and turn the screw and look for the opening goal.

0:40:090:40:19
0:40:190:40:24

years ago. He had a terrible time in the opening match against Spain,

0:40:240:40:34
0:40:340:40:50

the first game of Euro 2008. He was would took the corner, when he sees

0:40:500:40:56

that defence move out, move with them. That's the most animated I've

0:40:560:41:02

seen Sandys -- Santos in the whole tournament. Greece are losing the

0:41:020:41:07

midfield battle at the moment. It's too comfortable for Russia.

0:41:070:41:11

Tactically they push them back, push the Greeks back, giving the

0:41:110:41:21
0:41:210:41:26

of their qualifying group ahead of Croatia. Croatia have shown what a

0:41:260:41:36
0:41:360:41:53

good team they are out here. We've middle of the field at the moment.

0:41:530:42:01

He's had a lot of touches of the ball. Lovely little touch, just too

0:42:010:42:08

far, the return from Shirokov. eknow it's as well. -- he knows it

0:42:080:42:13

as well doesn't he? That's the hurt ball, behind the defence, in the

0:42:130:42:21

last third. That ball gets pulled back. I'm surprised at the tempo.

0:42:210:42:31
0:42:310:42:35

55,614 in here for this one. I did wonder actually ten minutes

0:42:350:42:38

before the game when the stadium was still half empty. Looking

0:42:380:42:42

around now, the seats are all occupied. It's been such a nice day.

0:42:420:42:47

People sometimes outside the stadium, drift in. There's like a

0:42:470:42:52

beach just across the way with the river. Very nice. There are 100,000

0:42:520:42:56

in the fan park next to the Palace of culture in the centre of Warsaw

0:42:560:43:01

tonight. Not sure they're watching this one though. They're

0:43:010:43:07

attention's on something else! goals here or in the game between

0:43:070:43:14

Poland and the Czech Republic, as Group A reaches conclusion with

0:43:140:43:24
0:43:240:43:44

simultaneous kickoffs of the final nudge on the back. This is a basic

0:43:450:43:51

throw in. Helped into the penalty area. They haven't shown enough

0:43:510:44:01
0:44:010:44:15

the striker. They're keeping in narrow. They're trying to force

0:44:150:44:25
0:44:250:44:32

this time from Papadopoulos. Super play. Great combination. He's

0:44:320:44:42
0:44:420:45:04

trying to feed it into the channel the ball for any length of time

0:45:040:45:14
0:45:140:45:26

possession. Gekas colliding with Berezutski.

0:45:260:45:30

I think Berezutski jumped to control the ball, and Gekas runs

0:45:300:45:40
0:45:400:45:48

into him. I am not sure it is a the ball clear of their penalty

0:45:480:45:53

area, then it comes back towards them. The effort from Glushakov not

0:45:530:46:00

troubling the goalkeeper. Apparently there are storms and

0:46:000:46:04

heavy rain in Wroclaw for the other match between the Czech Republic

0:46:040:46:09

and Poland. I do not know if they are on the same scale as those in

0:46:090:46:14

Ukraine yesterday for the Ukraine verses France match.

0:46:150:46:24
0:46:250:46:32

That was the worst I have seen for few goalscoring opportunities. Free

0:46:320:46:41

kick given against Alan Dzagoev. He tried to roll out Tzavelas, and

0:46:410:46:51
0:46:510:47:16

the referee use it -- saw it as a was to Russia, but it did not stop

0:47:160:47:26
0:47:260:47:28

them winning the trophy. That was a decent ball in, and

0:47:280:47:38
0:47:380:47:44

Berezutski did well to get his head scoreline, but statistics tell us

0:47:440:47:49

that Greece have only had one attempt on goal that was on target,

0:47:490:47:58

Russia 7. They are dominant in possession.

0:47:580:48:02

You have to close the ball down and put pressure, and it is too easy

0:48:020:48:07

for Russia to work it towards the edge of the 18-yard box. Nobody is

0:48:070:48:17
0:48:170:48:29

and then he commits the foul in his frustration.

0:48:290:48:33

The Russians need to move the ball a little quicker. It is a bit

0:48:330:48:37

slower, and they have been lulled into ways slow-paced of the game,

0:48:370:48:41

which suits Greece as they are just looking for one opportunity, maybe

0:48:410:48:46

from a set-piece, to sneak that goal. It is hard for Russia to get

0:48:460:48:54

through. Denisov scored the first goal in

0:48:540:49:02

the UEFA Cup win it for St Petersburg against Rangers. Can

0:49:020:49:05

Greasby a little more expansive as the match wears on?

0:49:050:49:10

They need to take a chance, otherwise they will go home.

0:49:100:49:15

They do not have much creativity in their team.

0:49:150:49:19

There is not much ambition, as well. They need to get it forward and try

0:49:190:49:28

and create opportunities. Jenny a cost Papadopoulos has

0:49:280:49:36

looked good, hasn't he? He has, yes.

0:49:360:49:46
0:49:460:49:59

-- Kyriakos Papadopoulos. here or in the Polish and Czech

0:49:590:50:04

Republic game. As it stands in Group A, Russia would win and

0:50:040:50:14
0:50:140:50:37

given plenty to think about by Robert Lewandowski and the rest of

0:50:370:50:40

the Polish team the other night, but they have been rather more

0:50:410:50:50
0:50:510:50:57

area, a few Russian players looking at the referee.

0:50:570:51:01

I think -- I think the contact was on the edge of the box. I do not

0:51:010:51:11
0:51:110:51:25

interviews at all. Karagounis gives Shirokov a little

0:51:250:51:35
0:51:350:51:36

touch. His knee just catches him. Shirokov wants the assistant to

0:51:360:51:46
0:51:460:51:46

take a look. Shirokov would have been but if

0:51:460:51:51

that gesture was spotted. He has not yet been booked, Denisov is on

0:51:510:51:57

a yellow card for the Russian team, and Dzagoev as well. Four players

0:51:570:52:07
0:52:070:52:08

on the Greek side are, but we will not going to that now.

0:52:080:52:12

It is a bit aimless from Greece at the moment.

0:52:120:52:20

It is, it is a bit of a containment exercise.

0:52:200:52:23

That will be enough -- that will not be enough, they need to win the

0:52:230:52:33
0:52:330:53:01

goes down and has a look at the assistant referee.

0:53:010:53:11
0:53:110:53:12

The left-back just had a little pile at Ten. -- pull at him.

0:53:120:53:16

Nothing doing for Russia, but they are still dominating the play. So

0:53:160:53:22

far, unable to make the breakthrough. Russia made it to the

0:53:220:53:32
0:53:320:53:32

semi-final four years ago, losing 3-0 to the eventual winners, Spain.

0:53:320:53:41

Katsouranis was a little later on the challenge. Kerzhakov does not

0:53:410:53:46

get hold of it, he is maybe a bit lucky to be in the team.

0:53:460:53:50

While he was missing the ball, it was as much about what was

0:53:500:53:54

happening to Dzagoev on the edge of the box, and whether he was being

0:53:540:54:04
0:54:040:54:20

Russia, Berezutski winning his 51st cap at Ignashevich his 78. --

0:54:200:54:28

Ignashevich his 78th. Pogrebnyak has also done very well

0:54:280:54:33

since he came to Fulham, this question about who Russia should

0:54:330:54:40

have up front. I think the referee was initially

0:54:400:54:44

going to give a goal-kick, but it is a corner to Russia.

0:54:440:54:52

Yes, a slight deflection takes it out. I do not know whether it would

0:54:520:55:02
0:55:020:55:26

circle of. You cough up. He has tried to wrap his foot

0:55:260:55:36
0:55:360:55:39

around it, but I think the keeper has recovered. -- has it covered.

0:55:390:55:47

Chelsea paid �18 million was Yuri Zhirkov a few years ago. -- �18

0:55:470:55:55

million for Yuri Zhirkov. His move back to Russia was not a

0:55:550:56:02

popular one a monster some supporters. -- popular one a

0:56:020:56:08

amongst some supporters. Very much a fixture in the national side,

0:56:080:56:18
0:56:180:56:52

Ignashevich. Good play from Samaras. He did very

0:56:520:56:58

well to keep position and keep possession, and then put in a

0:56:580:57:05

decent cross. Greece offering very little

0:57:050:57:10

offensively, aren't they? I know, it is a lack of ambition,

0:57:100:57:14

and they are plain to tactics, Santos wants them to keep it tight

0:57:140:57:24
0:57:240:57:35

at the back. But they want to to he had to push one shot away in the

0:57:350:57:45
0:57:450:57:47

first few minutes, and that is it. Greece have to throw caution to the

0:57:470:57:57
0:57:570:57:57

wind at some point, or they are going home anyway. Bad foul came

0:57:570:58:07
0:58:070:58:08

from the untimely slip from Ignashevich. -- that foul. Has

0:58:080:58:12

Karagounis got the stamina to keep powering a way for the full 90

0:58:120:58:17

minutes? That is not what he does on a week-to-week basis any more.

0:58:170:58:22

As he said, he is being used as a substitute by his club. You cannot

0:58:230:58:32
0:58:330:58:44

have that two always! -- you cannot to try and cover the grounds that

0:58:440:58:54
0:58:540:59:02

Karagounis cannot. -- the other much to shout about keirin Poland.

0:59:020:59:11

-- the Greek supporters. But it did not stop them having a

0:59:110:59:16

sing-song in a restaurant last night when the England game was on!

0:59:160:59:26
0:59:260:59:36

I enjoyed that. It was very restaurants than there was on the

0:59:360:59:46
0:59:461:00:06

behind his back their to avoid conceding a penalty. -- Tzavelas.

1:00:061:00:16
1:00:161:00:37

One goal will change it, Russia are 13 attempts on goal from Dzagoev

1:00:371:00:47
1:00:471:00:47

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

1:00:471:01:32

and his team so far to one from Russia, leading the group... I know

1:01:321:01:35

the feeling. Tkhek republic in second place and Santos wondering

1:01:351:01:39

what to say to his players at halftime.

1:01:391:01:46

They've got a point. They need two more.

1:01:461:01:51

There's a man hoping to take Russia a long way in this competition.

1:01:511:01:55

Russia are certainly looking to win this game. We don't know was going

1:01:551:01:58

to happen, but the probability would be that Germany would win

1:01:581:02:08
1:02:081:02:13

their group, so play the runners up it stands.

1:02:131:02:20

Late chance in this first half! Would you believe it?! On the day

1:02:201:02:27

he equals the national record for caps, game number 120 for Giorgos

1:02:271:02:30

Karagounis and he scores one of the biggest goals of his international

1:02:301:02:34

career. There's hope for Greece in this tournament yet. They lead

1:02:341:02:41

Russia by 1-0. This is deja vu from Portugal. Soak

1:02:411:02:46

it up, soak it up and then hit. That's just a defensive mistake but

1:02:461:02:56
1:02:561:03:00

capitalised by the captain, leading how to punish a mistake. Zhirkov is

1:03:001:03:04

trying to get back. He drive it's low under the keeper. I mean, that

1:03:041:03:08

might be only their second shot at goal. I tell you how big that goal

1:03:081:03:13

is at the moment, if things stay as they are, Russia and Greece will go

1:03:131:03:17

out of Group A and the Czech Republic and Poland will go home.

1:03:171:03:24

That's incredible, isn't it? What a turn around. Greece very much

1:03:241:03:29

second best for almost all of the opening 45 minutes of this match,

1:03:291:03:33

and then suddenly, the outpouring of joy from the Greek bench, right

1:03:331:03:38

on the stroke of halftime. Giorgos Karagounis, the captain, with a big,

1:03:381:03:44

big goal for Greece and they have an unlikely lead here against

1:03:441:03:54
1:03:541:04:01

Russia at half time. Greece 1, Well, well, well. Would you believe

1:04:011:04:05

it? The Greek fans will be thinking it's '04 again. What an

1:04:051:04:09

unbelievable finish to the half. I think obviously Greece came out and

1:04:091:04:14

needed to win the game. They set off reasonably well. Russia

1:04:141:04:17

dominated possession, chances. After the first five minutes we

1:04:171:04:20

thought Greece had forgotten what they need to do and get a win and

1:04:201:04:23

decided that a draw would do, which it wouldn't do. Then towards the

1:04:241:04:27

end of that half, you just thought, when is the Russian goal coming.

1:04:271:04:31

All of a sudden it's exploded and to get a goal like that, the

1:04:321:04:35

Russian defence must be kicking themselves. They've hardly had

1:04:351:04:39

anything to do. Now they're in a position of strength. Karagounis is

1:04:391:04:43

part of the team that won the championships in 2004. This is a

1:04:431:04:46

terrific finish. It's come from a throw in and what they're doing

1:04:461:04:50

throw in and what they're doing there at the back is shocking. He's

1:04:501:04:54

drove through to the goal and buried it past the keeper.

1:04:541:04:59

keeper can't do anything, can he? It's a bit close. Fair play to

1:04:591:05:02

Karagounis, he's drilled his foot through it. Sometimes you try to

1:05:021:05:06

pick the corner, he's thought, I probably won't get another chance,

1:05:061:05:12

I'm going to hit it it as hard as I can. It's come from a throw in.

1:05:121:05:16

defending. As things stand Greece would go through to the quarter

1:05:161:05:19

finals with five points to their name. That's astonishing. Let's

1:05:191:05:23

start at the beginning, Fernando Santos the coach for Greece, he

1:05:231:05:26

wanted a fast start. He wanted a careful start as well, especially

1:05:261:05:28

after what happened to the Czech after what happened to the Czech

1:05:281:05:33

Republic. He got one. He did. In the previous two games they only

1:05:331:05:37

got eight corners. In the first ten minutes they got three. The first

1:05:371:05:44

chance came from a corner. A decent save from Malafeev there. At the

1:05:441:05:48

near post run, and they started the near post run, and they started the

1:05:481:05:51

game very, very well. Another one here. This is a volley, you know

1:05:511:05:58

decent. This one, Samaras down the left side... That was the first run

1:05:581:06:03

Samaras has made. He drew the defender out. When he gets it, we

1:06:031:06:07

weren't sure whether it was a cross or shot, the pressure they put on

1:06:081:06:11

them until that point was great. Then they went, you know what we've

1:06:111:06:16

had enough. We're going back there and get everybody behind the ball.

1:06:161:06:20

We saw Santos a picture near the end, scrubbing his said thinking,

1:06:201:06:25

"What am I going to say to them?" Apart from the last minute before

1:06:251:06:29

the whistle, I suppose Russia came back into it, Greece then showed

1:06:291:06:32

the wobbles that we were talking about at the top of the show.

1:06:321:06:36

made a couple of changes at the back. The left back area has been a

1:06:361:06:45

problem. Salpingidis has come into that position and frankly, their

1:06:451:06:55
1:06:551:06:56

defending was bad. They haven't learned the lesson. Both fullbacks

1:06:561:07:00

go forward. He's unlucky with the pull back. When the ball comes into

1:07:001:07:05

here, time ction possession on the ball, don't give it away, when it

1:07:051:07:08

goes into that area, one pass and they're into the heart of the

1:07:081:07:13

defence. The shot was weak in the end. Time and time again they get

1:07:131:07:16

into a position where they've got decent possession and what they

1:07:161:07:20

need to do from that is find a white shirt. They didn't do there.

1:07:201:07:24

This is unbelievable. Ball gets played into midfield, the line's

1:07:241:07:28

not great. But it's not too bad. Until this pass is made through the

1:07:281:07:34

middle, as the ball comes through, what is he doing? Papadopoulos at

1:07:341:07:40

the back there, what is he doing there? Arshavin gets his shot away.

1:07:401:07:46

It's communication, back fours need to stay together. Again, this one,

1:07:461:07:49

Samaras playing left back all of a sudden, which is not a great sign.

1:07:491:07:52

You think, something's going to happen. Gets on his man then fall

1:07:521:07:57

as sleep. In the end the ball beats the winger, but and that's what he

1:07:571:08:00

thinks of it. That was just before halftime. All of a sudden, now he's

1:08:001:08:05

going in and going we're leading, what do we do now? What does he say

1:08:051:08:10

now? He says to them, you know what, I know what you're going to do now,

1:08:101:08:13

they're going to sit further back. They've got something to protect

1:08:131:08:19

now. We highlighted a couple of protagonists as far as Russia were

1:08:191:08:22

concerned, Andrei Arshavin and Dzagoev was the other. Arshavin got

1:08:221:08:31

Russia's chances under way. He had a good chance early on when Dzagoev

1:08:311:08:37

put the ball in. Again, the four back there have to anticipate the

1:08:371:08:41

danger. Terrible defending again. These are not great chances, Lee.

1:08:411:08:49

No, this is Zhirkov, he gets the chance in the end. I think it's 14

1:08:491:08:54

shots he's had. Great effort by the way. 14 shots and not one has hit

1:08:541:09:00

the target. For a centre forward he has to lock at his ratio. You have

1:09:001:09:05

to say, why is the coach persisting with Zhirkov, he has Pavlyechenko

1:09:051:09:08

on the bench. Throw him on. He's just lacking in confidence. You

1:09:081:09:13

look at him and saying he's get nooing positions, Gary Lineker say,

1:09:131:09:16

if your centre forward is getting into positions he's not doing too

1:09:161:09:22

bad, but he's had a full swipe at that one and missed. This is a

1:09:221:09:25

fabulous Zhirkov shot, just over the bar. The pressure's there.

1:09:251:09:28

They've had chances. But now they're going into the second half

1:09:281:09:34

needing a goal. Exactly. How does that now affect Advocaat's team

1:09:341:09:39

talk? You know defending as a unit, surely they mustn't work on it, in

1:09:391:09:42

the Arsenal back four, you must have worked it. They're all over

1:09:421:09:46

the place.. It is a communication thing. You have to be talking to

1:09:461:09:50

each other, moving each other around the pitch. Obviously, it's

1:09:501:09:54

ability as well. You have to know when you're in the right position.

1:09:541:09:57

Some of the Greek defenders don't know if they're into the right

1:09:571:10:00

position and run out of it into a bad position. Then the Russians are

1:10:001:10:04

attacking in numbers and putting them under pressure. You can't see

1:10:041:10:07

them going 45 minutes in the second half without conceding a goal. You

1:10:071:10:11

can't see it. Having said that, the tournament is set up for a shock.

1:10:111:10:15

This would be a massive shock. certainly would be. For now, thank

1:10:151:10:21

you. It's 1-0 in Warsaw. As for events between the Czech Republic

1:10:211:10:31
1:10:311:10:41

and Poland. Here's the first half I don't think there's any doubt

1:10:411:10:48

it's a free kick. It's in a good position.

1:10:481:10:53

The overhead kick is into the side netting! Did it take a touch? It

1:10:531:11:03
1:11:031:11:10

fluffed. He's scored in both matches so far in this tournament.

1:11:101:11:16

They were harder than that arguably. He gets a great ball in. What a

1:11:161:11:26
1:11:261:11:57

hash he's made of that. He's got to It's a great delivery. They only

1:11:571:12:07
1:12:071:12:24

need a touch there. It would be keeper. Fabulous, it dipped in

1:12:241:12:30

front of him. It's a great strike, that.

1:12:311:12:37

Is he on side? He was. And he didn't make contact.

1:12:371:12:42

They are leaving a fair bit behind him. It's a great run, stayed

1:12:421:12:52
1:12:521:12:52

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

1:12:521:13:37

Russia would both be happy if it finishes like this. They would go

1:13:371:13:40

through to the last eight. The Czechs and Poland need a win now,

1:13:401:13:44

if they want a slice of quarter final action. One of them needs a

1:13:441:13:48

goal if they want to stay in this tournament. As I mentioned earlier,

1:13:481:13:52

fellas, for the Greek fans, they'll think it's '04 all over again.

1:13:521:13:55

think it's '04 all over again. Could their name be on this trophy?

1:13:551:13:59

It could be an unbelievable finish to the group for Greece, certainly,

1:13:591:14:03

because you look at their games and how they've performed and we've

1:14:031:14:07

been critical of them time and time again about not wanting to get

1:14:071:14:11

forward, not having the ability to hold the ball, lack of goals, awful

1:14:111:14:16

at the back at times, yet they're looking, sitting pretty nicely with

1:14:161:14:22

Russia to go through to the quarter finals. What will the Czech

1:14:221:14:25

Republic be thinking? There's a lot to play for in the second half from

1:14:251:14:29

their point of view. They'll know the result as it stands. Halftime,

1:14:291:14:33

both sets of managers will be looking and saying right, we need

1:14:331:14:38

to do this, we need to do that. There's a long way to go. If Greece

1:14:381:14:42

goes through, this would be an unbelievable result. For now, thank

1:14:421:14:52
1:14:521:15:28

you. Just to remind you the Just a to bring you some other news,

1:15:281:15:31

Uefa have opened disciplinary proceedings against the Croatian

1:15:311:15:34

Football Federation for racist chanting racist banners be played

1:15:341:15:41

by their supporters during their 1- 1 draw with Italy. The organisation,

1:15:411:15:46

Football Against Racism, said there observers had heard between 305

1:15:461:15:50

hundred Croatian fans making monkey noises, which prompted UEFA to

1:15:511:15:54

investigate the matter. The case will be dealt with on Tuesday.

1:15:541:15:59

With England on the brink of the quarter-finals, left to reflect on

1:15:591:16:03

yesterday's nail-biting win over Sweden. Lee, now you have digested

1:16:031:16:07

what has happened, what -- how are you feeling?

1:16:071:16:13

It was a fantastic result. This is the best cross in the tournament

1:16:131:16:23
1:16:231:16:33

equaliser, poor defending, Ashley Young in a position, he should not

1:16:331:16:40

be there. All the sudden, we are 2- 1 down and we fear the worst. Poor

1:16:401:16:46

defending, they got to attract deep, and you see England losing the game,

1:16:461:16:52

but what a substitution. Theo Walcott, it looks like it deflected,

1:16:521:16:56

the way the goalkeeper went for it. He could tell from his face that he

1:16:561:17:01

thought it was deflected, and then the best move of the game produces

1:17:011:17:08

a goal. Probably one of the best goals you will get, and a very

1:17:081:17:14

important one. A people say he did not mean it. He

1:17:141:17:18

definitely did. There is nothing else he could do. I do not think he

1:17:181:17:24

is aiming for the bottom corner! You can see but his head, he looks

1:17:241:17:34
1:17:341:17:35

straight away where it has gone. I Interesting pet -- interesting

1:17:351:17:39

quotes from someone in the FA, they say Roy Hodgson has got the Midas

1:17:391:17:43

touch. In this country, you are rubbish or

1:17:431:17:47

grade. If they lose, all the press will take -- will say they should

1:17:471:17:53

sack him. It is nonsense! I think he said himself with the

1:17:531:17:58

substitution, sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. Theo Walcott

1:17:581:18:02

was a perfect substitution at that time, he needed some pace and still

1:18:021:18:07

get back in again, and that is what happened.

1:18:071:18:10

Let's take a look at the situation in Warsaw, where half-time is

1:18:101:18:14

coming to an end. It looks like Pavlyuchenko could be coming on,

1:18:141:18:19

and it would not be a surprise to see him come on from Kerzhakov. --

1:18:191:18:27

for Kerzhakov. Let me join our commentators, Simon Brotherton and

1:18:271:18:37
1:18:371:18:41

on for the second half. He has scored 21 goals for Russia, only

1:18:411:18:49

five it shy of the post-Soviet record. Giorgos Karagounis,

1:18:491:18:53

goalscorer and captain of Greece, he has upset the applecart and it

1:18:531:19:03
1:19:031:19:03

for -- a little bit. Pavlyuchenko does not have the work

1:19:031:19:07

ethic of Kerzhakov, but he does have great finishing ability and

1:19:071:19:12

has shown that. Russia have to do something here,

1:19:121:19:17

because as it stands, they are going home. We did not think we

1:19:171:19:24

would be in this position. The way they started the tournament, with

1:19:241:19:29

the win over the Czech Republic. Yes, and they have been very

1:19:291:19:34

stubborn. Greece have been stubborn. They have packed their defence and

1:19:341:19:44
1:19:441:19:51

everyone is sitting deep. Gekas is Russia could be going home, at the

1:19:511:19:57

moment they are clinging on, but it is very tight. As it stands, three

1:19:571:20:07

teams would finish on four points. The Czech Republic will lose out as

1:20:071:20:13

things stand at the moment. Plenty of time for things to change in the

1:20:131:20:18

second half. They are a little bit ahead of first in the Wroclaw in

1:20:181:20:28
1:20:281:20:34

terms of the timing of the game. -- he brings a throw-in.

1:20:341:20:37

He works the lines, tries to running behind and put the defence

1:20:371:20:47
1:20:471:20:49

under pressure. He has no support, but he will not mind that.

1:20:491:20:59
1:20:591:21:12

Some activity on the Greek bench, play, 59% possession, 13 attempts

1:21:121:21:17

on goal, compared to two from Greece, but it is the scoreline

1:21:171:21:27
1:21:271:21:47

that matters, and it is 1-0-Greece. focus of the Russian players,

1:21:471:21:53

because if they lose this game, they are not in a great state for

1:21:531:22:03
1:22:031:22:30

good at, it is defending. They do not concede many. Greece can be

1:22:301:22:34

dangerous on the counter-attack. They made a good start to the

1:22:341:22:43

second half against Poland. Anyukov a bit slow to respond, and he

1:22:431:22:53
1:22:531:23:02

He just poked Samaras on the bottom of the food. Both feet off the

1:23:021:23:06

ground. The Brits do not offer any

1:23:061:23:16
1:23:161:23:17

protection in that situation. -- the boots. Russia, surprisingly,

1:23:181:23:27
1:23:281:23:54

trailing here to Greece. The more Russia chase, the more

1:23:541:24:03

Greece may be able to pick them off on the counter-attack. That was

1:24:031:24:09

very optimistic from Samaras. A poor decision. He has worked hard

1:24:091:24:14

and it did ever so well, try to take on the defence, but hinnies to

1:24:141:24:20

slip the ball between the two defenders, Gekas is making I dared

1:24:201:24:30
1:24:301:24:51

far for Dzagoev, barely East -- possession. Can they find the

1:24:511:25:01
1:25:011:25:05

cutting edge? The shot came in from syrup off. -- Shirokov.

1:25:051:25:10

This play, the full-backs come forward. It is a little pressure

1:25:101:25:20
1:25:201:25:22

will. -- it is a little Cashel. You want Pavlyuchenko on the end of one

1:25:221:25:32
1:25:321:25:39

been in the finals since 1980, but they have not missed a tournament

1:25:391:25:49
1:25:491:25:51

since. They may make an impression if they can win this game here.

1:25:511:25:59

They would also put an end to Russia's 16 game unbeaten run.

1:25:591:26:09
1:26:091:26:25

The fans were in good spirits last I do not think his facial

1:26:251:26:33

expression changes much. He has managed three of the big teams in

1:26:331:26:40

Greece, three big teams in Portugal as well. He has made a good job of

1:26:401:26:44

things, going on a 17 match unbeaten run at the start of his

1:26:441:26:50

reign. They finally lost last November, but he has a very solid

1:26:501:26:55

record. They do not score a lot. Just the

1:26:551:27:05
1:27:051:27:25

odd goal. 14 goals in qualifying again in a moment.

1:27:251:27:35

The Arshavin is one of those. -- change a game in a moment.

1:27:351:27:41

What can you say? Commentators curs! We know that Pavlyuchenko has

1:27:411:27:48

a great shot on him, but not that time, a lack of urgency.

1:27:481:27:53

In Russia and France do not look very pleased.

1:27:531:28:03
1:28:031:28:21

I think the last thing they thought have the Lion's share of possession.

1:28:211:28:31
1:28:311:28:41

Greece are set up again with Dick Advocaat in the past, saying

1:28:411:28:45

he has his favourites and they he does not feel he is one of them.

1:28:451:28:55
1:28:551:29:03

wall of defenders. It is good closing down, as soon as

1:29:031:29:13
1:29:131:29:26

he looks like getting a shot in, moment ago, he is a big lad and

1:29:261:29:36
1:29:361:29:36

takes some getting around. That decision is given the other way!

1:29:361:29:46
1:29:461:29:47

He has got that wrong, for me. Russia are searching for an

1:29:471:29:57
1:29:571:30:07

equalising goal here in the Polish in the attacking play. -- Zhirkov.

1:30:071:30:15

In Wroxall, -- in a Wroclaw, Poland and the Czech Republic are still

1:30:151:30:25
1:30:251:30:32

drawing. This is the situation as It is just wide from Denisov!

1:30:331:30:37

Poland would then finish bottom of the group. Long range at the moment

1:30:371:30:47
1:30:471:30:56

isn't it, Denisov. He drags it onto goal. If you work from ratios or

1:30:561:31:03

stats. Close but not close enough. Denisov one of the players on a

1:31:031:31:06

yellow card already along with Dzagoev.

1:31:061:31:10

The pair of them need to be careful. One more today and they would miss

1:31:101:31:12

the quarter final should Russia get there, which at the moment, they

1:31:121:31:22
1:31:221:31:45

fouls, relieving the pressure on the defence. Getting instruction

1:31:451:31:52

from the bench there. It's clumsy. It's annoying when

1:31:521:32:02
1:32:021:32:32

you're lose as well. the fullback saved the there there.

1:32:321:32:36

Zhirkov gets nutmeged there. He does the right thing here, head up,

1:32:361:32:40

slide the ball in there. You're thinking if the striker doesn't put

1:32:401:32:50
1:32:501:32:50

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

1:32:501:33:39

Salpingidis racing in at the far post. That's Anyukov again involved

1:33:391:33:42

in that, at the near post stopping that free header.

1:33:421:33:46

Half an hour to go in what is a very tight group. Just the one goal

1:33:461:33:49

in the match here. Greece have the advantage at the moment, it would

1:33:491:33:53

put them into the quarter finals along with Russia.

1:33:531:34:03
1:34:031:34:36

No! And Karagounis is going to be booked by the referee here. To me,

1:34:361:34:39

he's absolutely got it wrong, absolutely wrong the referee. That

1:34:391:34:44

looks like a trip. That's the second one in succession. I think

1:34:441:34:48

he's got that wrong. That shows you. Karagounis is doing his fruit down

1:34:481:34:58
1:34:581:34:58

there. I think it's Berezutski, is it?

1:34:581:35:02

It's Ignashevich. That's a foul. It's Ignashevich in the first half

1:35:031:35:06

who misplaced the header that led to the first goal. That should have

1:35:061:35:10

been a penalty. To be booked for that, that's an injustice. It's the

1:35:101:35:15

second of the tournament for them, in the opening game. Karagounis is

1:35:151:35:19

going mad. He will miss the next game if they get through. And he

1:35:191:35:22

was signalling as if to say, I want to come off.

1:35:221:35:26

No, I think he's talking to the fourth official, standing between

1:35:261:35:36
1:35:361:35:46

needs to let it go. There's not much can happen.

1:35:461:35:49

If you're frustrated you can say something to the referee and get a

1:35:491:35:53

second yellow. I felt it was a trip. The only thing I expected the

1:35:531:35:56

referee to do was point to the penalty spot. His mind is still

1:35:561:36:02

very much somewhere else. Depends how important that decision might

1:36:021:36:12
1:36:121:36:39

Anyukov. It's a bit late, as you say Mark, it's going to be a free

1:36:391:36:49
1:36:491:37:12

kick. They don't want to waste any substitution any moment now. I

1:37:121:37:20

think they might do it now. The player who is going to leave the

1:37:201:37:30
1:37:301:37:30

field is Gekas, one of the strikers. Jose Holebas is going to replace

1:37:301:37:40
1:37:401:37:41

him. Holebas is the fullback who was dropped for today and replaced

1:37:421:37:51
1:37:521:37:55

and Karagounis. Not only was he denied the penalty that he claimed

1:37:551:37:58

he should have got but also received the yellow card in the

1:37:581:38:00

process. Should they go through the captain would miss the quarter

1:38:001:38:05

final. That would have been the day he

1:38:051:38:09

broke the record for caps for Greece, not that comes to his mind.

1:38:091:38:18

No, just the injustice of the decision. It should have been a

1:38:181:38:21

penalty. I don't think there's any question in my mind. That's a

1:38:211:38:31
1:38:311:38:54

out of the play there. The referee from Sweden thought otherwise.

1:38:541:38:58

The referee is just having a moment. Looked like a clear foul to me, I

1:38:581:39:04

have to say. Yeah, he's made a few bizarre decisions. He's getting a

1:39:041:39:09

few things wrong. He takes his time and then, I cannot believe the

1:39:091:39:19
1:39:191:39:50

penalty decision. Another change the penalty area. Zhirkov is

1:39:501:40:00

forward. Karagounis is coming off now. Might be a sensible thing. If

1:40:001:40:05

he's not careful! He's not playing in the next game any way, though.

1:40:051:40:15
1:40:151:40:18

know, but... Katsouranis will captain the side. Here's his first

1:40:181:40:21

goal. Defensive mistake. He punishes them. You have to say, on

1:40:211:40:26

the second one when he drives into the penalty area again, he should

1:40:261:40:31

get a penalty. Doesn't. He gets booked. If they go through, he

1:40:311:40:35

misses the quarter final. He said on the eve of the tournament that

1:40:351:40:42

he was December froit bring a bit of joy to the people -- he was

1:40:421:40:49

desperate to bring a bit of joy to the people back home.

1:40:491:40:53

Grigoris Makos comes on. He struggled to establish himself in

1:40:531:40:57

the national team. He only started once in the qualifiers and only

1:40:571:41:07
1:41:071:41:14

winning his 12th cap here in this corner kick. Russia are banging

1:41:141:41:24
1:41:241:41:35

their heads against the wall in a I think there was a shout as well.

1:41:351:41:38

That's why the defenders explained to him. If you're not sure, put it

1:41:381:41:48
1:41:481:41:55

technical area there. He's in the technical area and when he saw him

1:41:551:42:05

shoot from there, Anyukov, he's, that, I'm afraid, is a penalty. No-

1:42:051:42:15
1:42:151:42:22

one can believe it. sits on the bench Karagounis, down

1:42:221:42:29

below us here. Well that has to be a foul by

1:42:291:42:35

Zhirkov. Yes, the card as well. a great place to concede a free

1:42:351:42:39

kick either. I think they're complaining. Zhirkov goes into the

1:42:391:42:42

referee's book. He hasn't been booked previously in this

1:42:421:42:46

tournament. He would still be available if Russia go through. At

1:42:461:42:49

the moment they are. As it stands, Russia and Greece would be the two

1:42:491:42:56

teams going through. They would both be on four points. The Czech

1:42:561:43:01

Republic would also be on four, but having lost to Russia in the first

1:43:011:43:11
1:43:111:43:45

-- rock slaf. get away with that one there --

1:43:451:43:49

lucky to get away with that one there! That's a wild challenge,

1:43:491:43:59

that one, over there. Late, wild, Dzagoev. I wouldn't be

1:43:591:44:02

surprised if he doesn't get booked for that. The referee with some

1:44:021:44:12
1:44:121:44:28

anybody. Here's the challenge. was reckless from Dzagoev.

1:44:281:44:34

Dzagoev's been booked in this tournament. He's received a yellow

1:44:341:44:37

card. He would miss the next game, out of the quarter final.

1:44:371:44:42

I don't think he can have any complaints with that.

1:44:421:44:52
1:44:521:45:10

the quarter-final, but it might be largely irrelevant, because there

1:45:101:45:15

has been a game -- a goal in up Wroclaw, and it is the Czech

1:45:151:45:22

Republic who have taken the lead. Petr Jiracek has scored the goal,

1:45:231:45:26

had as its stance, the Czech Republic top the group on six

1:45:261:45:36
1:45:361:45:56

points. As it stands, Greece and Republic and Greece who are

1:45:561:46:06
1:46:061:46:26

currently going through. Russia are is an absolute surprise. This is

1:46:261:46:29

what happens when you get to the final game.

1:46:291:46:34

We will see what Russia are made of here. They will have to find some

1:46:341:46:44
1:46:441:46:45

inspiration from somewhere. Someone will have to come up big for them.

1:46:451:46:53

That looks like a foul to me as well.

1:46:531:47:03
1:47:031:47:04

Nothing given by the referee from Sweden, Jonas Eriksson.

1:47:041:47:08

Let's clarify the situation at the moment. Because the Czech Republic

1:47:081:47:13

are beating Poland 1-0, they top the group on six points. Greece

1:47:131:47:17

will finish second because they are beating Russia, they would be on

1:47:171:47:22

four, Russia would go out because of the head for her to head result

1:47:221:47:32
1:47:321:47:48

of this match. -- head-to-head and not what we were expecting.

1:47:481:47:52

Absolutely not, and the referee has played a big part in the game today.

1:47:521:47:59

I will be surprised if he gets a game in the next round.

1:47:591:48:04

There is a real urgency about Russia now. The referee was praised

1:48:041:48:08

for his efforts in the Netherlands and Germany match, but he has

1:48:081:48:18
1:48:181:48:29

missed a few things today. from Denisov.

1:48:291:48:36

He has not had a lot to do in this game. He hit it down into the

1:48:361:48:41

ground, but Sifakis covers it, and it is looking a bit desperate from

1:48:411:48:51
1:48:511:49:09

ago, at the verge, on me cusp of going out on -- in the group stage.

1:49:091:49:13

Despite making an excellent start with that 4-1 victory over the

1:49:131:49:17

Czech Republic, they were held by Poland and are now struggling

1:49:171:49:27
1:49:271:49:55

ball up and keep it in play whenever possible. -- Samaras needs

1:49:551:50:00

full stock he has done it well for the majority of this game.

1:50:001:50:06

That lack of urgency, you need to go and win the game. Score a goal.

1:50:061:50:08

Greece need to win to stay in the competition, they have to come at

1:50:091:50:16

you. Katsouranis is down on the ground,

1:50:161:50:20

but he is OK. There is a lack of creativity from

1:50:201:50:30
1:50:301:50:39

Russia, a lack of imagination. They the moment. Dick Advocaat has got

1:50:391:50:49
1:50:491:51:09

one more card he can play from the the ball quickly enough. Greece are

1:51:091:51:13

sitting back, deeper, you can get it up to the edge of the penalty

1:51:131:51:18

area, and then you look for something special, a quick one-two,

1:51:181:51:24

Arshavin on the ball, they have not had it.

1:51:241:51:28

It has been a strange tournament for Greece. They were very poor in

1:51:281:51:31

the first half of the Poland game, but were better in the second half

1:51:311:51:41
1:51:411:51:42

and could have won the game. They were better with ten men.

1:51:421:51:45

Two goals - within six minutes of their second game, and now they

1:51:451:51:55
1:51:551:52:27

have their noses in front against good go.

1:52:271:52:31

No hurry to get on with the game here. Taking an eternity over the

1:52:311:52:41
1:52:411:52:53

give the ball away. Russia will have to start chasing,

1:52:531:52:59

the clock is ticking down. I am really surprised. At the start of

1:52:591:53:09
1:53:091:53:26

this game, all they needed was a here. He could so easily have got a

1:53:261:53:32

touch on that! Holebas's instincts did not taking

1:53:321:53:36

towards the goal. Excellent ball across the six-yard box from

1:53:361:53:46

Salpingidis, it just needed a touch. A full-back in a potentially

1:53:461:53:55

goalscoring position there, and Russia are let off the up again.

1:53:551:54:00

Now the last throw of the dice from Dick Advocaat. Barratt Izmailov is

1:54:001:54:05

going to come on, and he was handed a return for this tournament after

1:54:051:54:10

a six-year absence from the Russian international team. -- Marat

1:54:101:54:16

Izmailov. I wonder who he will replace? They have to throw

1:54:161:54:21

everything at Greece for the final few minutes. Izmailov will be on at

1:54:211:54:29

the next available opportunity. 34 games and two goals. A centre-

1:54:291:54:34

forward. He will be looking to make it three

1:54:341:54:44
1:54:441:54:53

and take a chance. They will lead to a maximum of three at the back,

1:54:531:54:59

push the full-backs up. -- they will leave a maximum of Prix at the

1:54:591:55:09
1:55:091:55:09

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

1:55:091:56:01

underneath that. He looks very uncomfortable.

1:56:011:56:05

Everything was looking cosy for the Russians before this game, but if

1:56:051:56:09

you do not start well, you can struggle.

1:56:091:56:14

Sotiris Ninis will come on the for Greece. He will be joining Parma

1:56:141:56:21

after this tournament. I like Ninis from what I have seen

1:56:211:56:28

of him. He has got good technique and is quick. Ninis is the

1:56:281:56:33

brightest attacking prospect in the squad, but he missed much of last

1:56:331:56:43

season in injury -- with injury, he tore his cruciate ligament.

1:56:431:56:53
1:56:531:57:09

He is tricky, has a good turn of pitch with his players. Russia are

1:57:091:57:19
1:57:191:57:19

devoid of inspiration at the moment. Dzagoev, no more than a ball's with

1:57:191:57:25

the way. Excellent ball from Arshavin,

1:57:251:57:31

pulling into the wide position. Dzagoev, three goals already, I

1:57:311:57:36

thought that was going to be four. The closest they have been in the

1:57:361:57:42

second half. Great cross, attacked well, get across the defender. That

1:57:421:57:47

is how close they are to going through.

1:57:471:57:52

These expressions sum up how Russia are feeling at the moment. They are

1:57:521:57:58

under pressure. Karagounis's goal still separates the two sides. In

1:57:581:58:04

the other match, the Czech Republic are beating Poland by 1-0. As it

1:58:041:58:08

stands, group play has the Czech Republic as group winners on six

1:58:081:58:13

points, breeze would go through on four, Russia would go out on four,

1:58:131:58:23
1:58:231:58:28

and Poland would be bottom of the halfway line. That is why the ball

1:58:281:58:34

has been put out of play. The referee can call for a free

1:58:341:58:39

kick if he wants. The temperature has gone up another

1:58:391:58:44

degree or two. This is all about running the clock

1:58:441:58:54
1:58:541:58:55

down. Them is no incident. There is no contact. It is time wasting.

1:58:551:59:02

There has not been much of that in this tournament, and the referee is

1:59:021:59:12
1:59:121:59:12

now coming over. He has been conned. It breaks up the pattern of the

1:59:121:59:15

play, breaks up the rhythm, which is the last thing Russia need at

1:59:151:59:25

this moment, with five minutes to He leaves his team now with ten men

1:59:251:59:29

at a crucial stage. We clearly saw that there is nothing wrong with

1:59:291:59:34

him, so anything happens in this period now, the manager should be

1:59:341:59:42

furious with him. It will be interesting to see how

1:59:421:59:47

long it takes Katsouranis to get back on the field.

1:59:471:59:53

Oh, my good is! I am sorry. He can lip now, but he just jumped off the

1:59:532:00:03
2:00:032:00:03

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

2:00:032:01:47

under the circumstances, trying to find that opening.

2:01:472:01:50

They just haven't got that little bit of magic, have they.

2:01:502:02:00
2:02:002:02:10

of something big. The Russian fans know they're on

2:02:102:02:13

the vrge of something they weren't expecting.

2:02:132:02:21

-- verge. Paying the price for not going for it in the first half.

2:02:212:02:27

Little bit of a casual approach. The arrogance maybe, we can lift it

2:02:272:02:31

if we need to. But it's all how you start the game, in a positive

2:02:312:02:41
2:02:412:03:08

manner, look for a goal. will it? Yes, it will. Good

2:03:082:03:18
2:03:182:03:31

technique on the edge of the box post. But in the end a blunt attack.

2:03:312:03:36

Cannot believe that. Most fans cannot believe they're on

2:03:362:03:41

the verge of going home. He calls for it. We hear him from

2:03:412:03:49

here. Getting out of the group the

2:03:492:03:52

absolute minimum requirement from the population of Russia here.

2:03:522:03:55

One of the big teams coming into this tournament. A huge following

2:03:562:04:00

here as well. So good four years ago.

2:04:002:04:10
2:04:102:04:23

It's more or less the same team. to nudge the goalkeeper over the

2:04:232:04:27

line. That's an overreaction, an absolute overreaction. Players

2:04:272:04:31

grabbing hold of each other like that. All he's done is backed into

2:04:312:04:37

the goalkeeper. But it disrupts the rhythm. It does. It's all shots

2:04:372:04:40

from distance. It's hardly anything in the box. Did he do anything

2:04:402:04:47

wrong there? No. Mark, as in the last game against Poland, Russia

2:04:472:04:51

much better in the first half than the second, in terms of

2:04:512:04:56

effectiveness? To be honest, it's been a lesson really in defending

2:04:562:05:03

from Greece. Because right from the start they came out, everybody back

2:05:032:05:13
2:05:132:05:23

behind the ball. Gekas was on his a push. By Berezutski, they're

2:05:232:05:27

throwing everything at Greece. Tempers fraying a little inside the

2:05:272:05:37
2:05:372:05:39

penalty area. There was a bit of a Unnecessary. He didn't need to do

2:05:392:05:43

it. Right in the middle of the screen.

2:05:432:05:47

You never know what might happen behind you. That ball didn't go out

2:05:472:05:52

of play either. If Russia ge out here, there won't be a bigger

2:05:522:05:57

surprise in this tournament. Unless Greece go on and win it

2:05:572:06:04

again in 2004. The referee had pulled the game back. It's going to

2:06:042:06:11

be a yellow card for Pavel Pogrebnyak. I think it's a

2:06:112:06:16

deliberate handball. There he goes, arm in the air. Closes his eyes

2:06:162:06:19

actually. The ball falls for him. There's the captain. Kicking every

2:06:192:06:25

ball, even though he's on the bench. I think Santos has a fellow coach

2:06:252:06:29

alongside for the quarter final, if Greece hang on here. He's played

2:06:292:06:33

the captain's role, Simon. He's been an inspiration, all over the

2:06:332:06:36

pitch. I am shocked to be honest to see

2:06:362:06:46
2:06:462:06:59

Russia here. And the Czech Republic have beaten

2:06:592:07:06

Poland. So the co-hosts are out in Wroclaw tonight. Poland out of the

2:07:062:07:09

euros. The Czech Republic topping the group at the moment, six points.

2:07:092:07:14

Greece as it stands, will join them in the last eight on four. Russia

2:07:142:07:18

going out, because of the head-to- head record against Greece.

2:07:182:07:23

Dick Advocaat heading for PSV Eindhoven after this. Not how he

2:07:232:07:33
2:07:332:07:57

wants to go out either. Handy for The bench emptied, Greece are all

2:07:572:08:01

off the bench. They're pointing and making gestures to the referee and

2:08:012:08:05

the fourth official, pointing to their imaginary watches. How much

2:08:052:08:09

longer. That's the captain who has scored the goal. What an

2:08:092:08:12

extraordinary turn around in this Group A, because Greece were awful

2:08:122:08:16

in the first 45 minutes of their opening match against Poland...

2:08:162:08:20

They were two down inside six minutes against the Czech Republic

2:08:202:08:24

in their second match. But they've saved the best till last in the

2:08:242:08:30

group stage. Incredibly, they have knocked Russia out of Euro 2012.

2:08:302:08:36

And Greece, winners in 2004, against the odds, have caused an

2:08:362:08:40

almighty upset here in Warsaw. Because Greece join the Czech

2:08:402:08:43

Republic in the last eight, thanks to a goal from their captain,

2:08:432:08:51

Karagounis. Deja vu from 2004 it really was.

2:08:512:08:57

They lost to the Czechs, come into this game knowing a win would take

2:08:572:09:03

them through. Russia knowing one point would see them through.

2:09:032:09:07

Unfortunately for Russia they didn't show the desire. They didn't

2:09:072:09:11

do what they needed to to go through. Well done for Greece.

2:09:112:09:17

started so well for Russia. 4-1 winners over the Czech Republic in

2:09:172:09:21

their match. They were sailing along. They were beaten by a goal

2:09:212:09:24

from Giorgos Karagounis. Greece are celebrating. Russia are

2:09:242:09:28

going home. The final score in going home. The final score in

2:09:282:09:35

Warsaw, Greece 1, Russia 0. Incredible scenes from Greece. Of

2:09:352:09:39

course, deja vu from 2004. That is Greece's first win in the finals of

2:09:392:09:44

the euros since they won it back in 2004. You guys were convinced they

2:09:442:09:48

could not hold out against Russia in the second half. They defended

2:09:482:09:51

so much better in the second half. They were a threat. I thought

2:09:512:09:56

Samaras was great. They should have had a stone wall penalty. They were

2:09:562:10:01

fantastic. Fair play to them, Lee. 2-0 down against the Czechs after

2:10:012:10:09

six pen -- minutes. Missed a penalty at 1-1 with ten men and

2:10:092:10:13

beat Russia. You have to give them credit. They've been doged. They've

2:10:132:10:16

got men forward when they needed to. They defended in the second half

2:10:162:10:20

like I didn't think they could. In Karagounis, they've got a very,

2:10:202:10:25

very relieved man. I think he would have burst a blood vessel, if he

2:10:252:10:29

hadn't have gone through. Because it's just fantastic to see it.

2:10:292:10:33

Russia didn't do enough. Well done the Greeks. What a night for the

2:10:332:10:40

Greek captain. If you look back at it now, in hindsight, a mixed of --

2:10:402:10:45

night of mixed emotions. For now an incredible evening for him. He led

2:10:452:10:49

by example. There was times when I think the right decision was to

2:10:492:10:53

take him off. Mentally he was all over the place when he got booked

2:10:532:10:57

and didn't get the penalty. It's been an unbelievable achievement.

2:10:572:11:00

Who'd have thought before the start of the night that Russia and Poland

2:11:002:11:05

would go out? Santos, the manager, had all sorts of problems going

2:11:052:11:09

into this game based on the fact that they had to beat Russia.

2:11:092:11:14

They've gone into this... It seemed their luck had deserted them with

2:11:142:11:18

their goalkeeper injured. A little bit. They didn't have a great deal

2:11:182:11:22

of confidence. But with that determination and team spirit,

2:11:222:11:26

they've gone into the game, got their heads in front, had a stone

2:11:262:11:30

wall penalty, and the blokes performed miracles. Just before

2:11:302:11:33

halftime he looked like he needed some help. His head was in his

2:11:332:11:37

hands. All of a sudden, they get the goal. In the second half these

2:11:372:11:42

scenes. How have they got through? You look at the group, Poland,

2:11:422:11:45

Russia bottom of the group. You flip that group on its head and

2:11:462:11:49

you'd say those two would go through. They've ended up third and

2:11:492:11:55

fourth. Very well done to Greece. fourth. Very well done to Greece.

2:11:552:12:05
2:12:052:12:10

Great scenes in Warsaw. So Czech The Russians go out by virtue of

2:12:102:12:13

losing to Greece tonight. What a sensational result from the Greeks

2:12:132:12:16

to sneak through. Co-hosts Poland finish bottom of the pile on two

2:12:172:12:21

points. In many respects two of the favourites in that group Russia and

2:12:212:12:25

Poland in the bottom two. There were a few permutations in the end.

2:12:252:12:30

We were working out if it was a goal from the Czechs or from Poland,

2:12:302:12:36

but the Greeks have literally... LAUGHTER

2:12:362:12:40

They're enjoying the moment. They're having fun. It is

2:12:402:12:43

reminiscent of 2004 when they won it against all odds, have you to

2:12:432:12:46

say against the Russian team today it was against all odds to go and

2:12:462:12:50

win the game. To be fair Russia have only themselves to blame. They

2:12:502:12:54

didn't do enough. They weren't direct enough, didn't create enough

2:12:542:12:57

chances with the players they had. You have to say that Russia

2:12:572:13:01

deserved to be out in the end. what scenes we're seeing. You're

2:13:012:13:07

right, Arshavin, you know, they were poor. There was no urgency.

2:13:072:13:13

lot of pop shots. Russia were poor. Rarely will you find a nation whose

2:13:132:13:16

players are so passionate about playing for their country. Can you

2:13:162:13:19

see that. They surprielzed me in the second half. We expected them

2:13:202:13:27

to sit back and Russia just to defend. Greek ht best chances in

2:13:272:13:30

the second half. Samaras as you pointed out was in the game. He was

2:13:302:13:34

going forward. They created some chances. They didn't just sit back

2:13:342:13:40

like in the first half. It's about time we reflected on the one and

2:13:402:13:44

all important goal. What a time to get it, a couple of minutes just

2:13:442:13:48

before halftime. It was the captain, Giorgos Karagounis. It's shocking

2:13:482:13:52

defending. We talked about Greece's defending in the first half. That

2:13:522:13:56

was equally as bad from Russia there. Lee, should the centre half

2:13:562:14:00

come to him there? There's all sorts going on defencively. Let's

2:14:002:14:04

give him a bit of credit. Probably best it fell to the most

2:14:042:14:08

experienced player on the pitch 120 caps. He gets through, keeps his

2:14:082:14:11

head. His decision to put his laces through it and hit it hard was

2:14:112:14:15

probably the right one. If ever there was a Greek tragedy, it was

2:14:152:14:21

this booking, wasn't it? He misses the next game and this is a

2:14:212:14:25

complete... Ignashevich brings him down. It looked a penalty from a

2:14:252:14:28

long way off where we were. The referee has made a shocking

2:14:282:14:33

decision. This tells you what it means to him. Sometimes with

2:14:332:14:39

players reactions you know if it's a penalty. That's a foul. We have a

2:14:392:14:45

better angle here. There's the contact. If Greece, you know Russia

2:14:452:14:49

ge on to equalise, that's huge. Best facials I've ever seen in a

2:14:492:14:57

football match here, look. It's Robert dn kdeniro. You have to feel

2:14:572:15:01

for him. That's not going to be rescinded now. It should. That

2:15:012:15:05

should be rescinded. It can't be. But he's going to miss out on a

2:15:052:15:09

quarter final, when he led by example. He's a hero. That's

2:15:092:15:14

brilliant, look. He's gone from probably the most unhappy he's ever

2:15:142:15:20

been, to the happiest he'll probably ever be. His kids in the

2:15:202:15:24

middle. That's fantastic. This doesn't happen very often in a

2:15:242:15:27

footballer's life when you get a moment like this. This is where you

2:15:272:15:32

enjoy it. Fantastic. Spine chilling really just watching it. To get the

2:15:322:15:36

kids in the middle. Anyone would think they'd won it. They're

2:15:362:15:40

probably going to play Germany next! This might be short lived.

2:15:402:15:50
2:15:502:15:51

After what we saw, Russia dominated the first half. Greece, the first

2:15:512:15:57

few minutes were all theirs, and they went in on the back foot. They

2:15:572:16:03

created chances in the second half. Second half, we thought they but

2:16:032:16:11

sit back, but they did not. This is a great chance. Great ball across.

2:16:112:16:15

Gekas should get in front of the defender.

2:16:152:16:23

Was it the wrong option? No, I think Gekas has to get in

2:16:232:16:28

front of Anyukov. They got men forward. A good chance from the

2:16:282:16:37

corner. Probably the best, so Bayless with a free kick. -- it so

2:16:372:16:47

Russia thought they had got away minute, then they were chasing the

2:16:472:16:53

game as the Czech Republic scored. They defended well and attacked

2:16:532:16:57

with numbers. Salpingidis gets wide, another

2:16:572:17:03

fantastic ball across. They surprised be by attacking the

2:17:032:17:07

Russian team. As for Russia, everyone expected

2:17:072:17:11

them to come out of the blocks, but there was no real urgency. That

2:17:112:17:15

would be the most frustrating aspect.

2:17:152:17:20

In the first game, they flattered to deceive. I thought the four

2:17:202:17:24

goals were too many. Poland dominated the second game, and they

2:17:242:17:27

have slipped up here. The players they have got in the attacking

2:17:272:17:32

line-up, they should be creating good chances, and they did not.

2:17:322:17:42

He should give credit to the Greek defence. -- you should give credit.

2:17:422:17:47

Denisov get a chance, that we thought this might be a theme. To

2:17:472:17:57

be fair, they get men behind the ball.

2:17:572:18:02

It is all a long shot. Greece had good chances, all of Russia's were

2:18:022:18:12
2:18:122:18:14

from outside the box. Another shot from Denisov.

2:18:142:18:19

Goalkeeper tried to bundle it, but he got his hands on it! Arshavin, a

2:18:192:18:25

fantastic ball into the box, as a lawyer should do better. -- Dzagoev

2:18:252:18:32

should do better. He had a flying start, two goals in

2:18:322:18:36

the first game, but when his team needed one, he could not come up

2:18:362:18:41

with it. Dick Advocaat, that is it for him.

2:18:412:18:47

Russia's unbeaten run of 16 games comes crashing to an end.

2:18:472:18:51

I think they thought the Greeks would be quite easy to push over,

2:18:512:18:56

and that they had the players to get them into the game. Arshavin

2:18:562:19:00

flitted in and out, did not create much, and you have to say, to the

2:19:002:19:04

Greek team, well-defended, and enjoy your night, could because you

2:19:042:19:11

might not get another one! Coming up, we will have the latest

2:19:112:19:15

from England camp, but here are highlight of the game between the

2:19:152:19:25
2:19:252:19:25

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

2:19:252:20:06

side-netting. Was there no truck -- netting.

2:20:072:20:15

A -- Lewandowski. You'd expect him to sit -- you expected to hit the

2:20:152:20:25
2:20:252:20:30

target. Turned round the post by Cech. The

2:20:302:20:40
2:20:402:21:06

fabulous strike. move, they were patient. Tighten

2:21:062:21:16
2:21:162:21:16

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 56 seconds

2:21:162:22:04

almost drops it, but he does not. - goal-kick. A smart reaction stop

2:22:042:22:14
2:22:142:22:47

Gebre Selassie had made a great run for the Czech Republic. -- petty

2:22:472:22:57
2:22:572:23:02

occasion. Jiracek cuts in on his right foot

2:23:022:23:07

and passes it into the net. Absolute despair for Poland, utter

2:23:072:23:17
2:23:172:23:31

Just to reiterate, the Czech Republic go through as group

2:23:312:23:36

winners. What a comeback after that opening up 4-1 defeat to Russia.

2:23:362:23:41

The Russians go out despite finishing level with Greece on four

2:23:412:23:46

points. That is because they lost tonight. What a sensational result

2:23:462:23:51

from the Greeks to sneak through. Poland finishing bottom of the pile

2:23:512:23:57

on two points. That beans two throwing night at

2:23:572:24:01

the European Championships. England beat Sweden last night. Let's get

2:24:012:24:11
2:24:112:24:17

We were hoping to bring you scenes of jubilation here in Krakow. Sadly,

2:24:182:24:21

the party is over for the joint hosts, and you hope, they have been

2:24:212:24:26

so fabulous, but they will keep with the tournament, and Krakow,

2:24:262:24:30

which is not a host city, still embraces the tournament. We have

2:24:302:24:34

had fans from all over the tournament being here. Let's hope

2:24:342:24:38

the spirit is retained. There is a silver lining for England, because

2:24:382:24:42

the team hotel is round the corner, so I guess the party may be over a

2:24:422:24:46

bit earlier and the players will get some sleep. They got back in

2:24:462:24:50

the early hours off this morning over -- after victory against

2:24:502:24:55

Sweden. The players have been recovering and relaxing at a hotel.

2:24:552:24:59

Today was always going to be an easy day. Tamara's training session

2:24:592:25:07

is now closed, no cameras. -- tomorrow's training session. We

2:25:072:25:13

spoke to Wayne Rooney, he is eligible for the final group game.

2:25:132:25:17

You can here more on that fascinating interview into the Roy

2:25:172:25:23

Hodgson regime, tomorrow on BBC One. Roy Hodgson had some downtime today,

2:25:232:25:31

he went to the Jewish quarter in Krakow. I am hoping I can get a

2:25:312:25:36

golf buggy myself. We will have that interview on the

2:25:362:25:46
2:25:462:26:15

If it is anything like tonight, you will want to join us on Monday!

2:26:152:26:19

England take on Ukraine in their final group game. Despite the

2:26:192:26:23

euphoria of last night, still plenty to work on.

2:26:232:26:27

There are a couple of decisions that Roy Hodgson has to make.

2:26:272:26:31

Rooney is coming back, what does he do about that? Will he make a

2:26:312:26:36

change? Them is a decision as to whether Carroll or Welbeck leaves

2:26:362:26:44

the team. I am pretty sure that Andy Carroll will make way. Penises

2:26:442:26:48

to work out what to do with Ashley Young. I thought he was born last

2:26:482:26:53

night. Does he bring in Walcott? He made a great impression as a

2:26:532:26:57

substitute. Grid position we have put ourselves in, but we can get

2:26:572:27:04

better. I agree. I think Dunne has been

2:27:042:27:14
2:27:142:27:15

poor, and Walcott should come in, he is an impact player. -- Young.

2:27:152:27:20

Ukraine need to win, do not forget that. Have they got a goal in the

2:27:202:27:25

end? Is it their tournament to go through?

2:27:252:27:32

In good going with the mentality that they have to win. It is a

2:27:322:27:37

dangerous game to play ball stop we need to leave it there.

2:27:372:27:42

The that is it. Group play is done and dusted, and what a finish!

2:27:422:27:47

Poland and Russia are out, and although Greece may be leaving the

Manish Bhasin presents live Euro 2012 coverage as the final round of Group A matches gets under way with Greece taking on Russia. The Greeks will be out for revenge in Warsaw, having crashed out at the group stage of Euro 2008 following a 1-0 defeat to the Russians. Four years earlier they caused one of the biggest upsets in European Championship history, defying pre-tournament odds of 150-1 to lift the trophy. Russia went on to reach the semi-finals at Euro 2008, bowing out to eventual winners Spain, and Dick Advocaat's men began this year's tournaments as favourites to win Group A. They boast plenty of familiar faces - the likes of Andrey Arshavin, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Pavel Pogrebnyak all played in the Premier League this season.
