Poland 1-1 Greece
It's quite possible that we've already had more excitement in Euro 2012 than we did in the entire last World Cup. Two goals. Two reds. A saved penalty. All following a mercifully short opening ceremony.
What more could you ask for, other than a streaker perhaps.
I didn't catch the whole match, just the very start and the very end, but judging from the highlights, what happened in between was positive fayre, unlike the over-cautious dirges that tend to occur in the early stages of tournaments.
I had a couple of lines lined up like Poles Taken Apart or We Came, Warsaw, We Conquered, but neither is apt, or possibly, very good.
