Euro Day 9: Greek Lightning

They did it again! For those of you who have nightmares about the 2004 tournament, expect a very unwelcome relapse as Greece beat Russia to advance at the 2012 Euro.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Defying all odds, logic, and common sense, the Greeks beat Russia to advance to the quarterfinals of the Euro.  Russia had been the favorite to advance, and ran riot over the Czech Republic on Day 1.  Greece barely held on for a draw against a superior Poland.

Now Czech Republic qualified first from Group A and Greece squeaked out a 1-0 victory in a way that only Greece can.  Russia and (host) Poland are done and dusted.  God help us all if Greece win the tournament again.  I think Germany may declare war.
