EURO 2012 in Review

Round One Comes To A Close In Poland And Ukraine 

Ukrainian striker Shevchenko was nearly left out
 of the starting lineup but struck twice for the
co-hosts against Sweden
The action of the tournament kicked off on Friday with the other co-host Poland hosting Greece in Warsaw and closed today with the other co-host Ukraine securing themselves a surprising three points against Sweden. In between, hated rivals faced off, stunning goals were scored and powerful shots were saved. Two red cards have been shown so far, both coming from the same ref in the opening game between Poland and Greece. As the first round of group play comes to a close, some teams sit on top unsurprisingly while other nations are having fairytale starts to their EURO 2012 campaigns.
