Euro 2012 Day 1 Match 2

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Russia 4 Czech Republic 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We weren’t surprised the Russians looked so ruthless.
With great panache they put their goals away.
We were not shocked the Czechs looked old and toothless
sure Baros must be eighty, if a day.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Everyone predicted goals would spring forth
and that the Czechs would get cut down to size.
What goals the Russian system caused to bring forth!
And nobody was taken by surprise.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Yet one fact drew some disbelieving whistles
and absolutely threw us off our guard.
We thought that there’d be booking and dismissals,
yet Howard Webb did not produce one card.



Group A
