Russia vs Poland, Euro 2012: Open Thread
Russia against Poland will be the most tense match of the Euro 2012 tournament, both on and off the pitch thus far. It could begin as a rather cagey match, with both teams scared of making mistakes. But once it gets going, it will be played at a feverish pace. Poland, the host country, will be backed by a massive crowd and will desperately want to get a win to move one step closer to the next round. Russia, meanwhile, knows that a win against Poland, especially after their convincing victory against Czech Republic, could be enough to essentially make their quarter-final appearance a formality.
This promises to be a must-see match. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t get ugly, on or off the pitch.
According to the BBC, minor clashes have broken out between rival Russian and Polish football fans in the Polish capital Warsaw ahead of a Euro 2012 tie between the two teams. As the BBC warns, this is a very tense day in Warsaw.
