First racial controversy: Black Dutch players are the target of monkey noises while the team was training in Krakow. UEFA claims it wasn't racially motivated; it was a "protest" over Krakow not being picked as a host city...which makes absolutely no sense to me.

This.

(But that would be a strange form of "protest" indeed.)

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Just to clarify, I think it's strange that Krakow wasn't selected but what doesn't make sense is the idea of making monkey sounds to protest that decision.

Poland-Greece seems likely to be a 0-0, 1-0 or 0-1.

Russia-Czech Republic, I could easily see a 2-0 or even a 3-0. I'll be generous and predict a 2-1.

And in the good old traditions of these tournaments, the host is already receiving help from the referee...

Clearly the ref is biased, but I can't feel much sympathy for Greece because they are a horrible footballing side.

This ref apparently gave out sixteen red cards in nineteen La Liga games. Also, this could be some payback for 2004: the ref is a Spaniard and we know how Greece got out of their group in 2004...

I live pretty close to the stadium. It's unbearable, my friends. And the night will be even worse.

Indeed, hard to believe Poland and Greece made it that entertaining.
