The Russians took the headlines on the opening day with an impressive 4-1 thrashing of the Czechs with Alan Dzagoev completing a brace of goals. They now look worthy favourites to move into the knockout stages.
Poland and Greece managed to draw 1-1 but both have the Russian favourites of the group to play so will have a nervous task ahead. To make things harder for Poland they had there Goalkeeper Szczesny sent off, and Greece had defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos sent off also. Both recieve a one match ban.
As far as the TK cup goes yours truly proudly shares the top of the league with Michael (gloat while I can). Hill16 and noelyf take 5th and 6th places respectively with maff currently sitting in 10th position with a boat load of players yet to play. Do we stick with our initial captains or change them to try and achieve a better score is the question we now ask ourselves. As much as I don't like to admit it the league positions show nothing at the minute and will take a more informative shape once all teams have played there opening matches.
League entry is now closed for new entries for the just for fun TechKings Euro2012 fantasy football cup.
Very early days yet as teams still have players to play, but here is the league table after the opening days fixtures.
