Euro 2012: Group A fan predictions


Polish fans are hoping to see their side through to the final eight when they take on the Czech Republic on home soil in Wroclaw this evening.

The Poland and the Czech Republic sit with two and three points respectively in the middle of their group, so this is a do or die match where a win would see one of these teams through and the other out.

Also playing this evening are top of the group Russia – who have four points – against Greece who have one point following their draw with Poland.

One Russian fan said he expected spirits to run high: “The match is very important and our fans can be a little bit nervous. I think that Polish policemen must be ready.”

Polish authorities are braced for potential outbrakes of hooliganism following recent clashes between Polish and Russian fans during the tournament.

Meanwhile, a Greek fan in Warsaw still feels his side is in with a chance. “Russia is looking good,” he said. “But I feel like we are going to be confident, and we are going to play hard, it’s the last game. We are also playing to qualify, so I think our team will give it a good chance.”

It is a slim chance however, as Greece not only have to beat Russia, but also hope the Poland – Czech Republic game ends in a draw.
