Euro 2004 Diary : Day 09

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sunday 20th June 2004

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 it’s a greasy pole
that separates the teams;
the second hands
sent forth, by the clock of fate
try to clamber
to the zenith
spurred on
by the nervous boots
of the ungodly


Sunday 20th June

Group A results :

Russia 2 Greece 1
Portugal 1 Spain 0

The first of the the last round of group matches;
where teams can be through or out, at various stages of the game,
depending on the current scores in the two group matches.

For a long while, it was Spain and Greece in the Quarter-Finals, until Nuno Gomes scored for Portugal.

Portugal top the group; Greece 2nd, Spain 3rd, Russia 4th

ungodly : with the Olympics in Athens coming up this summer, the ancient Greek Gods played at the back of my mind
