Poland v. Greece
UEFA Euro 2012 Group A
Friday, June 8, Noon ET/9AM PT
National Stadium, Warsaw, Poland
TV: ESPN Online: WatchESPN
Wojciech Szczesny's Poland (well, I guess technically he doesn't own them, but still) takes on Euro 2004 winners Greece in the opening match of the tournament. You can read TSF's Adnan Ilyas' take on Poland here; Greece is the other team in the tournament. Seriously, I got nothin'. Anyway, pregame festivities start at 11.30 ET and kickoff's at noon, so if you like pageantry, banners, and adorable moppets in team kits tune in early!
[Ted here] UPDATE: the lineups are out! From Kevin McCauley over at the main soccer site:
