Group B – the “Group of Death” – lived up to its name yesterday, producing the first upset of the tournament as well as slaying our iPhone batteries quicker than we could say “choc pud”.
Relive all the Daniel Agger glory as we saw it while your vocal chords still have their health, Kickettes. Already the first week of June has brought its jumpy clap “A” game and you should too.
First day down, many more to go (yippee!). Missed Russia’s 4 -1 defeat over Czech Republic? See the match’s highs and lows here before skimming our random observations from the second half of today’s Group A double header:
- As was expected, Milan Baros continued his reign as the sexiest Czech Republic ‘baller who needs more Kickette homepage face time (Theodor Gebre Selassie is nipping at his heels, though).
- Not so sexy: the scene atop Jaroslav Plasil’s head. Was it responsible for his error that allowed Russia to make it 2-0? Well, obviously.

Those hoping for a nice, peaceful tournament where quality football wins the trophy and controversy is restricted to poor hairdressing decisions were probably disappointed by this afternoon’s opening game.

Airplanes around Europe are trembling under the weight of hair gel and headphones right now as the national teams, fully prepared for battle, make their way to Poland and Ukraine. The staff at Galileo Galilei International in Pisa were on an especially high, Mario-Balotelli-is-in-the-building alert yesterday, but the striker seemed in a good mood and managed to get through customs without having any of his hats seized.
