United Rant Live! Czech Rep. v Poland and Greece v Russia

June 16, 2012 Tags: , International 7 comments

Continuing the serious of, frankly, incongruous United Rant Live blogs during 2012, we’ll be covering the conclusion to Group A on Saturday night! There’s everything to play for in the ‘group of bored to death’, which turned out anything but.

Russia need only draw with Greece to qualify for the quarter finals, although a win will secure top spot in the group. Should Russia draw then the Czech’s could still finish top by beating Poland, and if the unthinkable happens and Greece beat Russia then Dick Advocaat’s men will be out unless there is a draw in the other fixture.

The Czech’s, meanwhile, can secure qualification with victory over Poland. A draw may be enough though, should Russia beat Greece as expected. Meanwhile, Poland must win or the co-hosts are out whatever happens in the other game. Finally, Greece can only qualify with victory and hope that Poland and the Czech Republic draw.

Confused yet?!

Join us for both games live from around 7pm UK time, with team news updates and pre-amble through the afternoon. There’s no Manchester United interest in this one, but the drama should be great nonetheless.

Cech organizing his Chelsea bus on his Czech side.

Mixed night… feel bad for the Poles… I wanted them to progress.

But I’m well happy to see the Cossacks out… cunts!

Pleased to see Poland go out after all that racism stuff in the papers. That and the fact that the team is dull.
I hope Ukraine get smashed out of the competition.
Greece were the underdogs v Russia so good to see them go through. Their people need something to cheer so good on them.

My polish mates are well glad they took Russia down with them xD I know I would if we took France… however I have betted on them winning in this group thing with my friends. So I can’t see them fail and get my pound back.

Chuffed to fuck. I called Czech as group winners and Greece as runners up before the tournament started, and I thought I’d fucked it up when Russia were tearing it up in the first game. Got the 1-0 Greece-Russia spot on n all.
