Czech Republic vs. Poland

Greece vs. Russia
[1 point vs. 4 points]
Group A Round 3
Saturday, June 16, 245 PM EDT Kickoff
TV: ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPN Deportes

As you can see, Group A is by no means settled yet. Greece, who bring up the rear with one point, can actually technically still win the group today if they win by a ton and the other result is favorable, believe it or not. Neither Tomas Rosicky nor Wojciech Szczesny will play today. Meanwhile Andrei Arshavin will no doubt play in Russia's match against Greece. Should be a fun time for everyone.
