If Greece invades Poland in the next hour or so it will be in protest over that sketchy red card the ref just handed out, followed by the non-call of a would-be penalty in the box on Poland. So far Poland is better than I expected, but the games won't really get going until the next few days.

Here's the schedule for the group stage.

Group A
8 June 2012
Poland Match 1 Greece
Russia Match 2 Czech Republic
12 June 2012
Greece Match 9 Czech Republic
Poland Match 10 Russia
16 June 2012
Czech Republic Match 17 Poland
Greece Match 18 Russia

Group B
9 June 2012
Netherlands Match 3 Denmark
Germany Match 4 Portugal
13 June 2012
Denmark Match 11 Portugal
Netherlands Match 12 Germany
17 June 2012
Portugal Match 19 Netherlands
Denmark Match 20 Germany

Group C
10 June 2012
Spain Match 5 Italy
Republic of Ireland Match 6 Croatia
14 June 2012
Italy Match 13 Croatia
Spain Match 14 Republic of Ireland
18 June 2012
Croatia Match 21 Spain
Italy Match 22 Republic of Ireland

Group D
11 June 2012
France Match 7 England
Ukraine Match 8 Sweden
15 June 2012
Ukraine Match 15 France
Sweden Match 16 England
19 June 2012

Arshavin is looking good so far.

I'm still pulling for my favorites, Rep. of Ireland!

Geez, is Russia this good, or have the Czechs taken a step back?

Russia are pretty good (they beat Italy 3-0 just before the tournament) and the Czechs haven't brought many young players through recently, so they still rely on their old guard.

The Dutch and Portugiese fell today. Both matches were good, but not great. Would like to see more scoring in the Ger-Port match.

The Czechs are that bad. I still weep over Scotland's decision to employ a 4-6-0 formation against them when they were clearly there for the taking. Terrible, terrible side.

Russia don't suck though.

Italy looked mighty good against Spain yesterday. I expected them to just stick 11 men behind the ball and play for a 0-0 but their passing was really slick at times and they created plenty of chances. Of course Spain would still have won if Torres could hit a cow's arse with the proverbial banjo.

I still have no clue how Holland lost to Denmark, or who that imposter they had running around up front pretending to be van Persie was. He was lousy.

The Czechs advancing was about the only thing I've gotten right so far.

- Sweden advancing (no)
- Ireland advancing (no)
- The Dutch winning it (absolutely not)
