First two Euro2012 games watched by millions


Millions of football fans around Europe have been glued to the first two opening games of the Euro2012.

In Warsaw, tens of thousands of people who couldn’t get tickets to the kick-off match between co-host Poland and Greece watched on a giant screen outside.

Around 56,000 people crammed into the city’s national stadium for the home team’s 1-all draw.
Later in Wrakaw, Russia beat the Czech Republic 4-1 at the city stadium in front of a 41,000 crowd.

Millions of others watched at homes and bars as the matches were beamed around the world.
