Uefa Euro 2012 Poland & Ukraine Trailer/Promo HD

Robert Lewandowski, who is rumoured to be heading away from his German team to Manchester United, gave Poland a well-deserved lead with a well-taken header in the first half while Greece, in spite of playing the full second half with ten men, tied the match through Dimitris Salpigidis six minutes after the restart. Each team had many opportunities to win, with perhaps the best chance coming from the penalty spot for Greece. A well placed, but tamely struck side-footed strike from Giorgos Karagounis was saved by substitute goalie, Przemyslaw Tyton with a well anticipated dive to his left.

Both teams are playing in Group A, which includes the Czech Republic and Russia. I have included a link to follow that directs you to a Wall Chart that you can download to track the teams and how they progress through to the final in Ukraine. The Wall Chart is from the Sunday Mirror in the UK and is one of the best, for FREE, and titled Road to Euro Glory.
