Greece deserved to lose. They played terrible. Sweden played worse than normal too though. But Ibrahimovic's goal was well deserved.

I did feel sorry for the goalie though, at that second goal.

It was obvious Greece was going to play like that. That's how they always play. Good thing they lost.

I agree (Y)

When Sweden scored and got the upper hand, the greek players got lost and didnt have a new plan to fall back on.

I really hope Greece wont make it out of the group. They play such horrible and boring football (N)

It's amazing to think they won this in 2004 but they probably didn't play like that!

They did play like that. That is why earlier in the thread I said Greece did not deserve to win the 2004 tournament but leesmithg believes otherwise, stating that "they played the correct form of football." Honestly, I never knew that the "Correct way" to play football was to have 9 players back at all times and when they get the ball back, they refuse to go up and attack and just rotate the ball back and forth with the back four. Greece won the 2004 tournament because they weren't taken seriously and teams weren't used to Greece's way of playing. No one is stupid anymore, they know Greece will wait for you to pressure so they can score a goal and stick all 11 players in the back but Sweden did not fall for that today, hence why the fans were booing the Greeks.

It is a shame though because Greece can play some good football if they attacked but they choose not to. They will eventually have to change their tactic when their current one starts failing them like it did today. I don't expect them to get past this group.

If I remember correctly, their last 3 goals at the 2004 tournament were all from a corner-kick. :p

Once they got out of the group stages in 2004, they won the rest of the games by 1-0. That is, they scored a goal via corner or free kick and they stuffed 10 players in the back like they were practicing against the forwards of their own team during training.

I watched the Greece game today.

One of the most boring things I've seen.

(Except for Sweden's first goal!)

I said it before the tournament and I'll say it again. Spain will be crowned European champions.

Yesterdays performance only made me more certain - Russia are hardly a poor side.

Spain played really good yesterday. But I hope they won't win. I don't know why, but I've got something against that team.

Great game so far compared to what we have seen lately. I still believe we will see good games from today on now that more is at stake and teams have gotten over their nervousness of playing their first game.

I came from a nation were soccer is almost non-existent so my knowledge of soccer is more than limited..

With that said, I watch the Portugal - Czech Republic and it was fun. It was much better quality and it had less flopping than all the games I saw in the world cup.

I wish I knew someone that knew soccer and liked soccer enough to teach me the sport.

Excellent game from Portugal, it was a fair victory. Czech Republic was harder than Turkey, with all that nice aerial game they have. Plus, their players don't really play nice and cuddly, some of their tackles were a bit violent.
